Video: Balancing Being a New Mom and Mountain Athlete with Emelie Forsberg

This past March, mountain athlete Emelie Forsberg became a mom for the first time. Ask any parent, and they’ll tell you that those first months are filled not only with a lot of joy, but also plenty of stress and sleepless nights too. In this video, Emelie shares her experience with this change in lifestyle, particularly as she returns to training and starts to get her legs back under her. Of course, the father of the child is none other than Kilian Jornet. Considering her parents, does anyone else think she’s got a pretty great chance of being an amazing mountain athlete herself?
