On this episode, she talks about growing up in rural Canada and how in her forties she decided to transition from Bob to Bobbi and express who she truly always was on the inside. She delves into the hormones and blockers she has been on for the last year and a half as she has transitioned, how her running has changed, as well as what it is like to go through puberty in a matter of months.
