Athlete moms

29 June 2011 at 7:33 pm Leave a comment

I just read this article from The New York Times about elite track and field athletes (mainly women) who are combining parenthood and competition. It’s both inspiring and heart-breaking; I can’t imagine trying to run competitively less than three weeks after giving birth, as one athlete says her coach called her and urged her to do. The pressures on the body, and the physical stresses of birth and breastfeeding, are certainly a powerful combination.

Thoughts?
