Do you only run when someone is chasing you? Can you imagine going from despising running to becoming a triathlon coach? That is exactly what happened with this week’s guest Kim Peek.
Kim says a “light bulb” went off for her one day while at the gym. She described herself as someone who refused to run, so deciding to run her first 5k was a life changing decision. Since then, she has not only become an endurance athlete, built a fitness coaching business, and a massive online running community, but also battled and survived breast cancer. In this episode we talk about how to overcome your own mental barriers and the unexpected obstacles that life throws at you.
Questions I Asked Kim:
How did you go from hating running to loving it?
How did you mentally get through your diagnosis?
What are some foods that your kids like that are healthy and easy to make?
Her strategy with food planning and crockpot meals.
The mindset tricks she used to get through chemo.
Why she believes that community is essential to success.
