The WRCC held its popular "Speaker Series" on August 11th via Zoom. The topic was eating disorders and how to fuel for sports and life. Here are short biographies on our two incredible speakers:
Rachael Steil - An author of the self-help memoir Running in Silence, Rachel is the manager and founder of the Running in Silence nonprofit organization (runninginsilence.org). The Michigan-based coach and runner earned her Bachelor of Arts degree in English at Aquinas College in 2015 and has been writing for the Running in Silence website since its start in 2012. On her website, she openly shares her eating disorder experience, making the site a Top 100 Eating Disorder Blog.
Heidi Strickler - Heidi is a Registered Sports Dietitian, competitive endurance athlete and trail runner, and avid lover of the mountains and outdoors. She specializes in female-specific performance nutrition, metabolic efficiency, and plant-based nutrition. Heidi published The Plant Based Metabolic Efficiency Recipe Book (https://www.enrgperformance.com/electronic-recipe-books) in October 2018. While originally from Utah, she now calls both Seattle, WA and Denver, CO home, bouncing between her job with eNRG Performance in Denver and her husband and pooch in Seattle.
We exist to support, unite, inform, inspire, encourage and empower women coaches at all levels of our sport.
