MELSAYS PODCAST - EP. 20 - Hilary Spires
Hey what’s up everyone! Welcome to a brand new episode of the MELSAYS Podcast. How are you? Hope your summer is off to a great start!
My guest for today, is a woman that I’ve been wanting to have on the podcast, since I met her in person for the first time this winter, at a local trail running race. Her name is Hilary Spires, she is an ultra runner, a coach, a former National Women’s Hockey League player, kick boxer and all-around badass. She also hosts a podcast, called the Trail Running Women’s Podcast.
She recently took part in the multi-grouse grind fundraising challenge, here in Vancouver, which basically entails climbing the Grouse Grind as many times as you can in 1 day from sunrise to sunset, while being 7 months pregnant.
She’s become a popular figure in the local trail running community thanks to her accomplishments and her kick-ass attitude, so I’m thrilled to have her on today to talk about her career as an athlete, that infamous pain cave and some of the challenges she’s faced while being pregnant as an athlete. Hope you’ll enjoy our chat!
