In this Episode
This week on the IronWomen podcast Alyssa and Haley catch up with feisty legend Selene Yeager. Selene is a former professional cyclist, author, and accomplished journalist. In 2017, Selene co-authored the book ROAR with Dr. Stacy Sims which featured a chapter dedicated to menopause. Selene explains how the release of this one chapter exposed a massive hole in credible information for female athletes seeking to maintain a high level of performance during their menopausal years. Fast forward to 2020, she began a second book with Dr. Sims dedicated entirely to menopausal athletes, and joined forces with Live Feisty to launch the Hit Play Not Pause podcast to bring more information to female athletes who are training hard into their 40s, 50s and beyond.
An accomplished endurance athlete herself, Selene started out in triathlon qualifying for Kona at her very first Ironman in Louisville and racing at the world championships just six weeks later. She had a successful professional mountain biking career that is highlighted by wins across the globe, and used her love of cycling to transition from a medical writer to a sports writer, regularly contributing to Bicycling Magazine, Shape, Women’s Health, and many others. Selene tells us why it’s important to put yourself out there to make connections and make things happen for yourself, and talks about the benefits of growing older and wiser and stepping into her true powerful self.
