260: Momentum with Dr. Michelle Quirk
We’ve all felt the slump that this past year has brought. So many of us have felt stuck. Whether in our jobs, our homes, our workouts, or maybe in our relationships, we’ve felt like things have stopped. When Dr. Michelle Quirk started feeling this, she decided to build some momentum and get moving.
She’s an avid runner and has built a coaching business designed to help professional women to prioritize their well-being through fitness. She knew that if she was feeling that “stuckness” then it was time to do something about it.
How did she move forward? She started evaluating her emotions and why she was feeling the way that she was. Instead of feeling the restlessness that cancelled races started to have on her, she decided to rest in the pause.
Michelle started to refocus and figure out ways that she could alter her normal schedule of events and still create community and connection. She’s now running some virtual challenges and helping women step away from being stuck by starting with bite-sized goals.
It doesn’t matter if you’re on mile 0 or 1000, you have to start somewhere. Listen in to hear all about Michelle’s story, how she’s helping women, and how you can connect with her and start gaining some of your own momentum.
“It’s been a huge thing for me to show that the sport is available to everybody if they want it, and you don’t have to be a certain size or look a certain way.” Dr. Michelle Quirk
