I think if you're going to get back into sport as a mature athlete, do it for - not who you once were,
do it for who you want to be now.
Natascha Wesch returns to Silver is the New Gold to talk with me about identity, goals and setting realistic expectations when getting back into sports/training and competition as a mature athlete, and it's all positive.
Inspired by the book Game Change: The Life and Death of Steve Montador and the Future of Hockey, by Ken Dryden, I wanted to know what it means to identify as an athlete and how that can both help and hinder mature athletes who are returning to sport, so I asked Natascha if she'd like to come back on the show to talk with me about it and she agreed!
Natascha is a consultant who specializes in mental performance for athletes who want to achieve their best potential as both athletes and humans.
