I Hate This Amazing Body

Just released: A BONUS Podcast episode!  We’re talking about BODY IMAGE—whew, what a topic.

This is a recording of the intimate session at the Outspoken Summit, November 2018, where I talked about:  I Hate This Amazing Body.  You can listen below right here in your browser, iTunes, Stitcher, or Spotify too (just search “The Same 24 Hours” in your favorite podcast app).

For those of you who couldn’t attend, I wanted to make sure that you had a piece of the amazing event. Here’s my session. Enjoy and share.

And to that I reiterate:
Well-behaved* women seldom make history.” ​– Laurel Thatcher Ulrich

Note: Edited for content and length, removing audience feedback (due to low quality), and overall audio enjoyment quality.

*Listener Warning* – Some Language, some sensitive, potential-triggering topics about body image, race, eating disorders, and transitioning.

*Audio Quality: Because this was a LIVE event, some audio discrepancy exists. We cleaned it up the best possible, but thanks for understanding.

The 2018 Outspoken: Women in Triathlon Summit presented by Triathlete Magazine was a phenomenal success, selling out two months ahead of the event. If you were not able to attend, the audio recordings of the main stage sessions are now available here.. The Outspoken audio package includes 10 hours of talks and discussions (separate audio recordings):

Meredith Kessler’s Opening Keynote
Julie Moss’s Saturday Morning Keynote
Senator Kyrsten Sinema’s Women for Tri Luncheon Keynote
Marilyn Chychota “How to Succeed as a Coach, Competitor, and Leader”
Meredith Atwood “I Hate this Amazing Body: Speed, Spandex, and Self-loathing”

My session this Sunday at @outspokensummit in Tempe, AZ, “I Hate This Amazing Body: Speed, Spandex and Self-Loathing” is all about the juxtapositions of body image in our heads, hearts, sport and society.
And what we—alone and collectively—can do to make a better view of “body image”—all around, personally, and in sport.
I would love to hear your thoughts and opinions on this topic of body image.❤️ #bodyimage #womenfortri #grateful #bodylove #selflove #bodypositivity #healthybodyimage #healthybodyimage #healthybody
