Why It’s Important to be at Peace with Where You are in Your Training- Carrie Tollefson
We’ve all heard the expression - when one door closes, another opens. For my guest that expression had lasting meaning. Carrie Tollefson, a 2004 Olympian, had trained and planned for a spot on the 5K team, but as fate would have it she didn’t make the team. Carrie came back and surprised everyone, including herself, by earning a spot on the 1500m team. For Carrie, being an Olympian changed her life.
Carrie, elite middle-distance runner, is also a five-time NCAA champion, three-time national champion, an ESPN2 analyst, wife and mother. Through her website, public speaking and training camps Carries inspires people to Get After It and find their passion in life.
With her training and background Carrie can explain what life is like for an elite runner, but she goes beyond that to share what’s she has learned that can apply to anybody. She says many of her life lessons have been learned on the track, but we don’t learn how tough we are until we have those moments that show us.
Carrie plans to run a couple good half marathons and another full marathon. She wants to remain driven her entire life. For Carrie it’s about finding passion in other areas of life and to Get After It!
