Natalie Miano and Navigating the Waters of Injury

OC-Are You Serious?

Natalie Miano came on the podcast to talk about her stellar performance in Jacksonville before COVID 19 shut down all races for an indefinitely amount of time, and how in that time period she made a conscious decision to undergo a necessary surgery for her health and how that surgery ended up sidelining her indefinitely as the incisions didn't heal properly. Other things we discuss: - Her support network that's helping her get through this - Listening to her husband, Marc Batres, and seeing significant improvements in her performance - How Marc's training has had a significant impact on getting people qualified for Boston as well as taking a rag-tag high school track team to competing for championships - How running at a high level and remaining injury free is impossible - Her rehabilitation plans and how she's been training - An OCR friends and family get together in West Virginia even if the race is cancelled Natalie wanted to give a shout out to not only her husband Marc Batres and his coaching business for helping her improve so much as well as VJ Shoes and how much she misses running in them. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/oc-are-you-serious/message

Family and OCR with Mark Batres and Natalie Miano

Overcome and Run

In the episode we talk to husband and wife team Mark Batres and Natalie Miano about how they manage their family of 4, work and personal life while consistently standing atop the podium. We had a great time talking to them about how they’re able to manage family time, work, personal life and training. In addition to family talk, they share their story of how they got into OCR, and why the sport is so important to them.  These two are up and comers in our sport, and I expect to see great things from them in the coming seasons.  This was a super fun episode for Heather and I to be on as we can relate to so many of the things they shared about being a married OCR team, and Heather and Natalie definitely share the same lack of love for walls. Evan Perperis sent us his book “Strength & Speed's Guide to Elite Obstacle Course Racing” to check out. We will read it and get back to you with some additional details. In the meantime, head on over to teamstrengthspeed.com and check out their new podcast or order the book. This episode is sponsored by Lucky 13 Coaching with Nickademus Hollon.
