I am so excited to share this week’s interview. I talked to Meredith Atwood, who some of you might know better as Swim Bike Mom. She is a recovering attorney, motivational speaker and author of the newly released, Triathlon for the Every Woman: You Can Be a Triathlete. Yes. You. She is also the host of the podcast, The Same 24 Hours. Meredith lives in Overland Park, Kansas (for now!) with her husband and two children and writes about all things at MeredithAtwood.com. Her next book, The Year of No Nonsense, will be released December 2019. You can follow her everywhere at @SwimBikeMom.
In this interview, we talked about Meredith’s books, overcoming addiction, depression and suicide, and some of the fears we have as moms. She also tells us about some of the fun things she’s discovered since her move to Overland Park, and I share my favorite places to get BBQ in the KC area. If you’ve never done a triathlon, or can’t fathom dipping a toe in the water, I still want you to listen. Meredith is real and passionate, and as we talk, you’ll learn why “just keep moving forward” has become a mantra that she lives by.
