Ali on the Run Show Episode 651: Motherhood Mondays with Aleia Hobbs, Professional Sprinter & Olympic Medalist

“We knew the answer was yes. But it was so sudden. We didn’t have those nine months to get prepared. It was instant.”

Aleia Hobbs is a three-time global medalist and an Olympic silver medalist, and she’s the North American indoor record holder for the 60 meters. One year ago, Aleia earned another title: mom. In this conversation, the adidas-sponsored professional sprinter talks about the call that changed her life last year, and about what the first year of motherhood has been like for her and her partner. She talks about the adoption process, about continuing to train on very little sleep, and about her big dreams for the future. Follow Aleia on Instagram @aleiabitofthis.
