Balance in All Things: Katerina Nash on Olympic Dreams, XC Skiing, Mountain Biking & Cyclocross

Katerina Nash might be the person I’ve interviewed most frequently at podium presentations over the ten years I’ve been a cycling journalist. That’s because she’s been racing for over two decades now, and she’s won—a lot. Most recently, you guys might remember that she won the first World Cup of the season in Iowa at Jingle Cross. Or, hey, you might remember her FIFTH PLACE FINISH IN RIO, which, btw, was her fifth freaking time at the Olympics! And, in Consummate Athlete-speak, she’s definitely one of us, given her start in gymnastics as a kid, career in XC skiing, then her follow up with MTB and CX. Plus, she hikes and walks hours upon hours each week with her dogs. (Jealous.) … But what I love most about her is that she’s all about balance. There’s  a ton of hard work that goes into maintaining a career like that, but part of her longevity is thanks to the fact that she can also relax and find a ton of enjoyment throughout the process. I’m super stoked we finally got her on the show, and it was a really rad conversation—you’ll want to give this one a listen, for sure. (Warning: it will make you want to buy a dog and pour yourself a glass of wine. Don’t say I didn’t warn you!)
