After posting the first few Passion Profile I received the below message from a reader about Becky suggesting she would be perfect for the Profiles:
“Becky is a fitness coach, mother of 4, military wife, and all around great person. Becky is one of the most genuine people I’ve ever met, and passionate about her family and training. She’s currently preparing for a world record attempt at of the supported FKT on the PCT.” – K. Taughinbaugh
Clearly my interests were peaked when I saw Becky was going to attempt the Pacific Crest Trail FKT (Fast known Time). Like most people who are truly passionate, it didn’t take much for me to see it through Becky’s Instagram and in conversation with her via email.
Personally I really loved Becky’s view on Time being a monster. I completely agree with her and when I’m racing it’s on par with my brain as my toughest competitor. As a mother of 4 and her training schedule I can imagine it’s one of Becky’s toughest too.
I also love how Becky has created a life where she can spend time with her family and still train at such a high level. This is a very tough thing to do. At this level there is always the nagging voice that says you need to be doing more and that your training has to be just right. Becky is breaking that mold and blazing her own path. It’s my belief that it’s her passion for what she does and her family that help her find that balance.
