Episode 1: The Need to “Prove Yourself”
This is the first of three videos featuring the first-round Female Uphill Athlete coaches: Carolyn Parker, Alison Naney and Maya Seckinger.
“Women often feel the need to prove ourselves in a mountain environment or when training for competitive events where women are often the minority. Additionally, we may feel a lack of support due to our minority position in a mountain sport.”
In this first episode of our Female Uphill Athlete Video series, the coaches share their own stories and frustrations on this topic and how we’ve handled situations like these as female athletes personally and professionally.
