In this episode Amy and Jen welcome Amber Pierce, a collegiate swimmer turned professional cyclist. Amber is now starting a new podcast, the Be A Good Wheel Podcast, which will “spotlight the value in all the messy unfiltered moments behind [the] shiny outcomes and offer a place to support each other in process.”
This interview covers a lot of ground, from systemic problems in sports that don’t support collegiate athletes and women to our personal theories on why swimmers struggle to run and vice versa. Amber talks about the ways she has continued to find joy in training after her pro career, including taking up mixed martial arts. She gives perspective on how she hopes to raise her daughter to approach competition and movement. And we hear more about her upcoming podcast.
