"In this episode, Faith shares stories from her first few months of travel and adventure as Director of Toughness for Columbia Sportswear. We talk about the meaning of toughness, how running can lead to confidence, how to handle injuries, why love is a great motivator, why representation in art and media really matters, and so much more.
Faith's stories and perspective really touched me and made me think, and I hope the same is true for you!" -Nicole Antoinette
I had an incredible time speaking with Nicole for this podcast, reflecting on some stories and experiences I hadn't had a chance to unpack and realizing the significance of other moments in life up to his moment. Hope you enjoy!
