Podcast 160: Kristin Mayer, The Beautiful and Badass Founder of Betty Designs LIVE from Canyon

By in Podcast

Kristin Mayer started her morning on a seemingly ordinary Monday utterly unaware that her life was about to change forever. Married for over a decade, she knew it wasn’t perfect, but she was in it for the long haul, especially since she and her husband were raising a son together. By all accounts, they were a family and a family they would remain.

At 1 pm that afternoon, Kristin’s husband confessed that he was no longer happy and no longer committed to sharing his life with her. So many questions flooded in. Fear, sadness, and shock took her over. In those moments, Kristin experienced everything that one could imagine when their life turns upside down.

What would she do? How would she raise her son? Pay the mortgage? Move on? Heal? Ever love again?

One day at a time and on many days, one moment at a time she rebuilt herself and discovered strength she didn’t realize she possessed. Today Kristin finds herself at the top of one of the most recognizable brands in endurance sports and living an active and more love-filled life than ever before. In this episode, we dive into the details of Kristin’s story and the great community of Betty Designs that was born from this life-changing experience.

This podcast was a long time coming, and we are so grateful that once again, perfect timing showed up. Not only were we able to interview Kristin in person, but we had the opportunity to do it in front of a live audience on location at Canyon’s North American headquarters here in Carlsbad, California.

All had a super fun night, and we are incredibly honored to have been invited back to Canyon for another chance to host a live podcast event. Thank you to Jule’s Foods and Choice Juicery for supporting the YogiTriathlete podcast by generously serving our guests some of their amazing culinary creations.
