In part 1 of our three-part mini-series on healthy sport, Justin speaks with Jessie Thomas, Leah Versteegen and Anya Gue. This wide-ranging conversation considers our culture's strained relationship with athletics. Though a force for good in many of our lives, the pressure to perform in sport can lead to over-training, premature specialization and an unhealthy degree of self-identification with athletics. We consider the role of coaches, parents, and clinicians in this delicate balance and identify markers of dysfunction to look for in ourselves and others.
