Rudy’s Road to Kona Series: Part 5
In part 5 Rudy’s healing is nearing 100% AND she is on track to race at the IM World Championships in Chattanooga, TN.
Fear – what about fear? What role does fear play in the progression of an athlete’s training and racing? Is it detrimental? Is it helpful and is it possible to “Smile at Fear” (a book she references called Smile at Fear: Awakening the True Heart of Bravery).
During this interview Rudy discusses the infamous fears she and many people experience as IM athletes; deepens her understanding of suffering vs pain; and discusses how she will use the all the above in her upcoming race.
Rudy reflects on her current ‘rose/bud/thorn’ and discusses why the song ‘Begin Again’ by Dispatch speaks to her so loudly.
