Connect and Rise with Ashley, military veteran, military wife, mom of four, triathlete, runner, and pre/postnatal exercise specialist. Ashley shares her journey after winning a Half Iron Man World Championship at 22 years old. She describes how challenges “are the biggest thing that will make us grow.” And that she always seeks to allow herself to be uncomfortable. Ashely encourages us to do the same, reminding us that we will become so much stronger if we can allow ourselves to push past comfort. We can pour that strength into all facets of our lives. Ashley also shares her faith which is at the center of it all for her. The episode will remind you never to settle for where you are if you’re unhappy. You can put in the work to change. Let this be your next DAY ONE.
