Judi Ketteler Found Her Balance and Avoided a Midlife Crisis


 “I really like the motion of it, which was surprising, really a huge surprise. But it’s great to know that you can still be surprised by things when you’re in your forties.”

Judi Ketteler was in the position of caring for children and aging parents at the same time. Being a freelance writer and the primary breadwinner on top of that added another level of stress.

She dealt with that stress through her writing, and by running – until she was injured.

Judi was determined not to have a “midlife crisis”. When her doctor told her she couldn’t run for a while.  She spontaneously declared, “I’m going to swim.”

Learning to swim well enough to serve as a substitute stress release was all part of the journey.
