This week, Alyssa and Haley talk to Paralympian Melissa Stockwell about her life as a 2016 bronze medalist, Dare2tri cofounder, Veteran, motivational speaker, mom, and Ironman. Melissa talks about what it’s like training for the Paralympics with her two biggest competitors and what it means to represent her country as a soldier and an athlete. She shares how she keeps such an optimistic outlook on life despite her traumatic injury by using the power of choice, leading by example, and celebrating what she has instead of mourning a loss. Plus, Melissa tells us about her organization Dare2Tri that helps athletes with physical disabilities compete in triathlons.
Alyssa and Haley catch up after the holidays and answer a mailbag question about what and how much to eat in your first 70.3.
