Qualifying For Kona 8 Months After Giving Birth
by Taren Gesell
Nicole Walker is an age-group triathlete and mother to a nearly 2-year old son. Just one year into attempting to race as a pro, over training caused her to have to give up racing, and then she became pregnant. Just nine months after having her baby, she returned to racing as an amateur for the first time in nearly two years, and she won the amateur division at IMAZ, qualifying for Kona 2020. We talk about over-training, training while breast feeding, coming back after giving birth, and what’s next.
