Being the fastest on the field is no easy feat. Raising a track and field contender like Allyson Felix is also not for the faint of heart. We asked Allyson to tell us a little more about the source of strength that is her mom.
Q: What does your mother mean to you?
Allyson: She is the greatest teacher. She is who I turned to before every race to calm my nerves. And she always knows how to lift me up.
Q: If you had to describe your mother in 3 adjectives, what would they be?
Allyson: Compassionate, sure, and gracious.
Q: How has motherhood impacted your relationship to self-care and the way you show up for your mind, body, and spirit?
Allyson: I have always had a great relationship with my mom. Since having my daughter we have been able to connect on another level. It's been so special to have her next to me in this journey of life. There is this new understanding of each other through this shared experience and it's been really beautiful.
