Olympian Hailey Swirbul, a professional cross country skier, and a member of the Alaska Pacific University Nordic Ski Center & US Ski Team on the A-team, and member of the Women’s Ski Coach Association shares her journey in sport. We learn about Hailey’s highly active upbringing in Colorado which led her to skiing at age 10. After being the only skier at her high school, she transitioned to college where she skied for both University of Alaska Anchorage and Alaska Pacific University before beginning her professional career. Hailey walks us through her experiences with an eating disorder, anxiety, and depression. She shares with us her challenges through college burnout and how identifying and reframing her motivators served as primary factors to recovery and success. This episode, Hailey gets real with us and reminds us, “it's not considered a failure until you actually give up on it. No matter what it is, no matter if it's being the best version of yourself, if it's chasing a goal for a result, if it's being a great teammate.” - Hailey Swirbul
