293. On the Job with Dr. Monica Verduzco-Gutierrez, Covid-19 Rehabilitation Doctor
"It was important for me to pursue this dream and make it happen. I have this belief of, you can’t be what you can’t see. So if other young girls are not seeing women as leaders and women as physicians and women in high positions and important jobs, they may not think they can be there. That made it extra important for me to continue to pursue this dream." Every day, we are bombarded with news about the Covid-19 pandemic. But an important part of that conversation that is often missing is, "What happens after I get Covid?" Dr. Monica Verduzco-Gutierrez is here to answer that critical question. Dr. Verduzco-Gutierrez is the Professor and Chair of the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at the Long School of Medicine at UT Health San Antonio, and she has developed a post-Covid recovery clinic to aid in the rehabilitative recovery of patients who have functional, mobility, and cognitive deficits after getting infected with the coronavirus. On this episode, Dr. Verduzco-Gutierrez — who is a two-time Boston Marathoner and mom of two — talks about her lifelong passion for medicine and for taking care of people. She discusses the very small number of Hispanic women in medicine, and explains what it means to her to be a role model in the field.

World’s Toughest Race Series: Coree Woltering: Eco Challenge Fiji - R4R 211
Coree Woltering is an openly gay, black man who is unapologetically real and fights for what matters to him. He wears bright, dazzling speedos to compete in, and is one of the best ultra-endurance runners in the country, yet what he wants to raise awareness for the most is something you might not expect; midwest (American) athletes being overlooked by brands when they are equally capable of representing a brand well. Coree himself has become evidence of this, signing to The North Face earlier this year. In this episode, we talk about Coree's entrance into the running world, beginning early, but not really knowing where his strengths were until he tried his first marathon in his late teens. Coree did not think about the lack of black role models in the running or triathlon world he grew up in, looking up to people like Chrissie Wellington for a source of inspiration. We talk about our society's need to put people into boxes, which encourages marginalized groups to form. Just like we say being a runner is only part of who we are, being black is only part of Coree, as is being gay or being from the midwest. We go on to discuss his experience in the World's Toughest Race: Eco Challenge Fiji, and whether there was added pressure being the first all African American team with Team Oynx, and things beyond their control going wrong, and forcing their race to face a heartbreaking decision. This episode is packed with inspiration, and Coree's perspective in life is one we can learn a lot from. Resources: Coree's Instagram Coree's Twitter Coree's Website Thank you to my wonderful sponsor Generation UCAN, Athletic Greens, and Fenn Coffee for sponsoring this episode of the Running for Real Podcast.

133. Gwen Jorgensen, Runner & Olympic Gold Medalist
When Gwen Jorgensen graduated from the University of Wisconsin, she had every intention of becoming a CPA. Within a year of working, she did her first triathlon, doing well enough to achieve elite status. Before she knew it, she had qualified for the 2012 London Olympics and life was never really the same. In episode 133, Gwen talks to me about the #hurdlemoment of navigating a flat tire in London, causing her to come in 38th place, and inspiring her to work harder than ever to make it back to the olympic stage in 2016. We talk about the big life decisions she had to make to follow that dream, including a move abroad and the relentless support of her partner Patrick, and what it was like to be the first woman to win Olympic gold in triathlon. Of course, we also get into her decision to leave triathlon for running full-time, what life’s like in Portland right now, and how motherhood and injury have both played big roles in her recent training.

Surviving & Thriving After a Stillbirth | Carrie Hauskens
Hello Beautiful In this episode, I sit down with Carrie Hauskens as she talks about her own personal infertility journey from struggling to get pregnant to her miscarriage and all the things in between. She gives a raw account of how much taking care of your mental health plays a role in the whole process, and how her attitude shifted during this process. We discuss the shift that takes place, physically, mentally, and even socially when we begin to change the steps of our journey towards a more healthy version of ourselves. How our mindset changes and things that we used to think were normal, we discover are not normal, and we place so much expectation on ourselves of what we think we should be doing. Carrie also talks about the decisions to leave her job and what a struggle that was at the time but how freeing and stress relieving it was on her once she committed to that decision. Topics Discussed: * How you begin to evaluate your relationships when dealing with infertility. * The importance of mental health for yourself and those around you. * How friendships change on your infertility journey. * The importance of letting ourselves grieve. -- Quotes: * “When you’re ready to release the bitterness and anger, it’s a very scary place.” * “You have to recommit day after day.” * “I’ve become clear with who I want to surround myself with.” * “Meditation helps me get in tune with my gut.” -- Connect with us! * Website: https://www.findingfertility.co/ * Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/pg/FindingFertility * Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/findingfertility/ * Baby and Me Journal: https://www.findingfertility.co/infertilityjournal * Amazon Store: https://www.amazon.com/shop/influencer-77328ce4 * Email: me@mymindfulme.com Subscribe to us on: * iTunes: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/the-infertile-diagnosis/id1467058429 * Spotify: * Stitcher: https://www.findingfertility.co/infertilitypodcast * Youtube: * Google: https://play.google.com/music/listen#/ps/Iqqdhvzt4bwex3iziweaxz77ewu -- Connect with Carrie Hauskens : Website: https://www.bloomingwithcare.com/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/bloomingwithcare/ Pinterest: https://www.pinterest.com/bloomingwithcare Connect with us! 🍍🦩Download your FREE 3 Things that can make all the difference in helping you get & stay pregnant here: https://www.findingfertility.co/perfectfertilitydiet 🌺 Get Steps Closer to Getting & Staying Pregnant with a Personalized Health Coaching:https://www.findingfertility.co/FertilityHealthCoaching Connect with Monica over on Instagram: https://bit.ly/FindingFertilityIG TikTok: https://bit.ly/FindingFertilityTikTok 🍍HELP SUPPORT THE SHOW 🍍 You can shop for your favorite fertility support products over on: Seeking Health:https://bit.ly/FFSeekingHealth & Amazon:http://bit.ly/FindingFertilityAmazon 🎙 Subscribe on your favorite podcast platform:⁣⁠⁣⁣⁣ Apple: http://bit.ly/FINDINGFERTILITYAPPLE⁣⁠⁣⁣⁣ Google Play: http://bit.ly/FINDINGFERTILITYGOOGLEPLAY⁣⁠⁣⁣⁣ Stitcher: http://bit.ly/FindingFertilitySTITCHER 🍍 Anything written or said about health and diet are my opinions, that I have formed over the years, through trial and error, study, reading, listening, and observing.

39: It's OK to Not be OK: Breaking the Stigma on Maternal Mental Health
It’s 2020. Why is there still a stigma surrounding mental health?! Especially around maternal mental health?  Women are celebrated for doing it all. Society tells us we can juggle it all, when in reality it is IMPOSSIBLE to do it all without help. Postpartum is the most critical time in a mother’s life. A baby is born, but so is a mother. We still tend to forget about mom when the baby arrives. How does that make a woman feel? Their body has changed, their hormones are all over place, and they are now responsible for caring for a new human being. We cannot underestimate the weight of this transition in a woman’s life.  We cannot diminish the emotional weight postpartum carries and motherhood carries.  We cannot tell women to brush their feelings under the rug. We need to be open about postpartum depression and postpartum anxiety so women know the signs and symptoms to look out for. I am so honored to speak to Dr. Pooja Lakshmin (@womensmentalhealthdoc on Instagram. She is a Perinatal Psychiatrist and contributor for the NY Times. We speak about “Mom martyr mode,” Postpartum Depression, Postpartum Anxiety, and how to know when you need to talk to someone about your mental health.  Our hope is to break the stigma surrounding maternal mental health. Understanding things are not okay take strength. Getting help takes strength. We want to normalize therapy and the medications and diagnosis of postpartum anxiety and depression.  Follow us @pedsdoctalk and @womensmentalhealthdoc to continue the conversation. IF YOU WANT SOMEONE TO TALK TO ABOUT HOW YOU'RE FEELING, CALL POSTPARTUM SUPPORT INTERNATIONAL AT 1-800-944-4773 Dr. Laksmin is also starting an online community called the Gemma Project, to empower mothers and guide them in their postpartum mental health journey.
