Connect and Rise with Dr. Heidi Lovett, triathlete, ultra-marathoner, author, humanitarian, BGR Ambassador and so much more! Heidi discusses loss and how important it can be to slow down and learn to prioritize healing. She shares her story of completing an Iron Man after an initial DNF (she continued on and eventually completed an Iron Man successfully). Heidi discusses how to reset goals and reminds us to be gentle with ourselves. She invites us all to “get out of our space” and encourages us to find the courage to move past negativity. One cause particularly dear to Heidi is to help more young Black women learn to swim. We need more girls to learn to swim for the health benefits and also to prevent drowning related deaths. Heidi is also an advocate for young people to think of themselves as global citizens. She will remind you: on your journey of development, start by forgiving yourself. Then move forward towards a better you and ultimately a better world.
