In today’s episode, I interview my mother, Ann Johnson.
I often get asked by parents about what their kid needs to do to make it to the next level. I believe the driving force must come from the kid, but parents can have a huge impact on a child’s well-being. My mom is one of my biggest supporters and is a big reason I am where I am today. She’s also a freak of nature athlete and can kick my butt in workouts.
In our conversation we talk about
-her favorite type of workouts, including one that can easily be done at home
-why she didn’t get involved with coaches decisions, even if she disagreed
-the most challenging aspect of parenting a female athlete
-her stance on kids playing multiple sports vs specializing on one
-why parenting athletes is like being a full time chauffeur
-the delicious meals she cooked for my teammates and the crazy games she had us play while w/ the Portland Pilots, Sky Blue FC, and the Portland Thorns
Enjoy my conversation with my favorite mother in the whole wide world
