2023 Top 5: #2 LAURA GREEN (@lauramcgreen): Everything’s Funny: Running, Motherhood, and Physical Therapy
Show Notes

Today I speak with Laura Green, a comedic content creator who loves to stand in front of people and tell jokes. Her brain is a hamster wheel of self deprecating humor focused on the run and fitness industry which she attempts to communicate via short videos and storytelling. She runs a lot. And she also naps a lot. Laura lives in Massachusetts with her husband and two young boys. We talk about Laura’s experiences postpartum and how she handled returning to run after each of her births. 


Laura tells us about working as a travel physical therapist and how she has now found a niche pointing out the humor in life, making people laugh on social media. If you’re ready for a good laugh, then this conversation is for you!


We talk about:

-pelvic floor physical therapy

-returning to run after baby

-working as a physical therapist

-identity as an athlete and mom 

-struggling postpartum

-starting slow with running postpartum

-finding the humor in motherhood and running

-asking for help
