Females need deep female friendships. That’s why Elizabeth Inpyn is on the podcast today, not because she’s an athlete, sports nutritionist and coach, but because she’s Tina’s best friend. They talk about finding friends, what makes a friendship special and why you don’t have to be close physically to have a meaningful relationship.
As Elizabeth says, “There's value in proximity, but it doesn't take proximity to have a valuable friendship."

It’s simple to make and it tastes good!
This is the time of year when our immune systems can use a boost, not only because it’s cold and flu season, but because with less sunlight, our vitamin D levels drop. Go here to get five free travel packs of AG1, and they’ll also send you a free one year’s supply of vitamin D3+K2 with your subscription, to help keep you healthy year-round.
Please help us spread the word about RED-S / REDs! It’s a common conception that only elite athletes suffer from Relative Energy Deficiency in Sport, but it can affect anyone whose energy output exceeds what they’re taking in, and it can have long-term health consequences, especially on bone health. We have 50+ videos on YouTube, with experts answering questions about all the different aspects of RED-S. Even if you don’t have RED-S, there’s valuable advice there for all athletes, especially about nutrition.
Thanks for listening!
