Redefining Motherhood: A Post-Sectional Epiphany

by Kelly Brown

In the aftermath of last weekend’s Sectional Qualifier, I find myself repeating the same story again and again. Frequently, with some element of emotion. And so I feel compelled to put it down in words. The story actually begins at the Rocky Mountain Regional Qualifier last year. The video crew was interviewing Kristine Reinking as she battled her way to the final heat of the competition. They asked her if she felt her age (at the time, 37) was a factor in her ability to compete with a field of women who were generally 10-15 years younger. Her response is one of the reasons I had the courage to compete this past weekend. She said (and I paraphrase) that her age likely affected her ability to recover from multiple workouts in one day, but that maturity brings a mental toughness that probably levels the playing field again.
