Can You Perform Exceptionally Well When You Have a Baby? Combining Ultra Running, Life as a Vet and Parenting
Our guest today is ultra runner, small animal vet, research scientist and mother of two Jasmin Paris.
Jasmin completely changed expectations of what is possible for new mums when she won the gruelling 268-mile Montane Spine race shortly after welcoming her first child.
A huge achievement, especially as she was stopping at the race break points to express milk for her daughter along the way.
During our chat Jasmin shares with us:
- How running makes her happy and why she should never have to apologise for that
- How having children has helped her focus more and has contributed to her success as a runner
- The reality of training for competitive racing alongside working as a vet and bringing up her children
- Why following your passion is so important
Jasmin is an incredible role model for many parents and a perfect example of how you can combine ambitious goals with having children.
We hope you enjoy our conversation.
