On February 29, 2020, Aliphine Tuliamuk positioned first within the U.S. Olympic Marathon Trials—and ready to run the largest race of her profession in 5 months time. However when the Tokyo Olympics had been postponed because of COVID-19, Tuliamuk’s plans dramatically modified.
As many Olympic qualifiers continued prepping for the rescheduled race, Tuliamuk juggled her coaching with one other aim: motherhood.
Within the window of time between the introduced postponement and the rescheduled Olympics, the athlete and HOKA One One sponsor made the choice, alongside along with her associate, to get pregnant.
After giving start to a child lady in January, the primary time mom and soon-to-be first time Olympian, is easing again into coaching. We had the possibility to speak with Tuliamuk about how she’s experiencing life-altering modifications, the enjoyment of motherhood, and her recommendation for relieving again into coaching postpartum—elite athlete or not.
