For this week, I had to hit pause on my previously planned topic and spend time discussing the Mary Cain story, which you can learn about here:
I don't have all the answers, but I hope you don't mind me taking the time to process this incredibly brave and heartbreaking story from Mary.
In the podcast, my discussion centers on two areas:
1. How can we advocate for those like Mary who speak out against wrongdoing?
2. How can we think about body image and bodyweight in running in a better way?
I know that I still have so much to learn to better do my part as an athlete and coach for a better future in our sport, so please do share your thoughts to my email - firstname.lastname@example.org.
As a side note: I don't discuss it directly but I believe in and advocate for a full, independent investigation into the culture of the Oregon Project and what amounts to child abuse in this case.
