Ep. 87 – Natalie Miano – Obstacle Racing Mother and Nutrition Coach


Natalie Miano is the woman behind the scenes of standout OCR elite racer, Mark Batres- until it’s time to toe the line. She balances the busy life of a wife, mom to her 5- and 3-year-old energetic boys, and Nutrition Coach with Born Fitness with training for OCR and has mastered optimal training with limited time.

Natalie joins the podcast to talk about being an athlete, mother, and partner to another high-level obstacle racer. She talks about how she does food prep differently than most, feeding her family with limited time. However, one of the biggest takeaways from the podcast is Natalie talking about the monthly relationship and family check-in she and her husband do to make sure they are reaching their parenting, nutrition, and athletic goals as individuals and a couple.
