A Runner's Journey Through Infertility and Pregnancy with Angelica Flanigan

185: A Runner's Journey Through Infertility and Pregnancy

interviews Feb 15, 2021

In today’s bonus episode, we speak with one of our Real Life Runners, Angelica Flanigan, about her running journey during pregnancy and infertility. Angelica shares her story about her secondary infertility, how she bravely faced this challenge and found a good balance in her running.

Angelica is an occasional blogger and a mom of one sassy toddler girl with a baby boy on the way! She loves food and running, and a fitness enthusiast in general. She believes that being "healthy" is not synonymous with boring. Ingredients matter and that glass of wine or chocolate you want are more than OK. It is all about finding that balance that works for you. Life is chaotic and messy at times for all, but she chooses to put health at the forefront for herself and her family. Let's listen to her humbling experience.
