Being the mother of an athlete is a challenging yet rewarding role. At momsTEAM we think sports moms deserve to be honored, not just on the second Sunday in May, but for an entire month. So we have designated May as National Sports Moms Month and invited some veteran sports moms to share their wisdom by responding to a series of questions. We will post a new blog for every day of May, which we hope you will find interesting, empowering, and informative, and that you will share them with your family and friends.
Today we hear from Erin Mirabella, a two-time Olympic track cyclist, stay-at-home mom of three, children's book author and momsTEAM blogger and writer.
A two-time Olympic track cyclist and mother of three pre-schoolers talks about how sports is providing them the building blocks for future success, helping them learn to gracefully handle winning and losing, competition, and develop
self-confidence, social skills, and appreciate the value of hard work.
