  • Jill shares the journey of her struggle of being diagnosed with hypothalamic amenorrhea as an ultramarathoner. She went to her OB who said: “you’re a skinny runner, what do you expect?” Losing your period is an indicator of something being wrong!

 

  • Loss of a period in an athlete is also an indicator of overtraining syndrome. There is a difference between overreaching and overtraining.

 

  • Jill’s athletic identity was definitely impacted when she had to take a break from her sport. She shares more about this important topic of identity.

 

                                                                                                                                                                                  

So You Know She Is Legit…

Jill is a former collegiate soccer player, triathlete, marathoner, and ultrarunner who went through almost five years of amenorrhea before finally addressing her issues to get healthy. Shocked at just how much she didn't know about hormones and menstrual health for athletes, she decided to share her research and wisdom on both Hypothalamic Amenorrhea and Overtraining Syndrome through her YouTube channel. Her passion for counseling others even led her to go back to school to Harvard University's Extension School where she is pursuing a Master's Degree in Psychology in order to fully support athletes in their path to health.
