In this episode: Dr. Kristen Lund, OB/GYN joins me to discuss all matters related to menopause; what it is, why it happens, what the symptoms are, how it can be managed, how it affects endurance training, recovery and performance and much more. She also helps me understand some of the controversies and misunderstandings that permeate popular culture on this subject and spends a lot of time answering questions submitted by my listeners, themselves going through this transition their lives. This episode is for ALL of my listeners. For the women AND the men who certainly have women in their lives who are or will be dealing with these issues at some point.
