New article on the Bulletin:

Signs to Stop Enduring: Ali Brauer's Experience with Relative Energy Deficiency in Sport (REDs) 

There are many less-than-glamorous experinces embedded in the sport of triathlon. Peeing into a chamois pad, the volatile snot rockets that don’t make it over your shoulder, the chronic chlorine stench, funky toenails, oozing blisters… These are the things triathletes constantly encounter yet rarely acknowledge because it’s simply part of the sport; enduring discomfort is what traithletes train to do.

But how much discomfort is too much? Where is the line drawn between drive and destruction? 

Last February, author Kristen Seymour with Triathlete Magazine published a phenomenally informative article discussing Ali Brauer’s experience as a professional triathlete who met an all-too-common fate via overtraining. I had the oppurtunity to interview Ali, who is also a former TTL Devo athlete, and delve further into her experience that forced her to into a long term training hiatus. Check out the full interview on the bulletin!

Stay stoked,

-Eric & Paula
(and Olive, the intern)
