Today I speak with Carter Norbo, a physical therapist, new mom, and member of the Rabbit Elite Team who ran at the University of North Carolina. In August 2023, she had twin boys at 29.5 weeks, but still went for an Olympic trials qualifying time on November 30th, at a marathon in Virginia. Even being so early in her postpartum, she came 73 seconds away from qualifying! Carter is still learning to adjust to life with running, work, and caring for the twins, but I wouldn’t trade it for anything.
We talk about:
-Carter’s start in running
-having a twin pregnancy
-running during pregnancy
-energy deficiency with training and pregnancy
-spending time in the NICU
-returning to exercise postpartum
-the future of her running
