In today’s episode I interview professional softball player and founder of Be The Momentum Emily Allard. Emily played college softball at Northwestern and continued on at the professional level with the Chicago Bandits, where her team has won two back to back championships. Emily is currently coming back from a concussion injury and is refreshingly open about her feelings of hopelessness and uncertainty of returning to play in the future. I really appreciated Emily’s rawness.
In our conversation Emily talks about:
-how childhood bullying led her to fall in love with softball
n-where she gets the motivation to keep coming back after battling injuries for 6 years
-why none of her teammates want to stand behind her in the autograph line
-the Chicago Bandit’s team culture that let them to back-to-back National Pro Fastpitch championship titles
-the most unexpected and best place she traveled to with Be The Momentum, a slapping program where she coaches across the country and empowers kids on and off the softball field
-the gut-wrenching pain of not feeling like a part of the team while being injured and how she manages those feelings
-her morning routine that must involve a Starbucks run
Enjoy my conversation with the high-spirited, kid-loving Emily Allard.
