The menopause transition can throw a lot of obstacles in your path. Training for and participating in obstacle course races can help you overcome them both physically and mentally, as you lift heavy loads, strengthen your grip, and hone your mental toughness and problem-solving skills. Plus, it’s super fun, says this week’s guest, obstacle course race enthusiast Laura McElduff, 52, who credits obstacle course racing with helping her get through perimenopause. 

Since completing her first obstacle course race in 2012 at age 42, Laura has competed at every distance from 3K to 50K ultras, raced in Canada and UAE and throughout the USA, placed top 10 in the F50-54 age group in the 2021 Spartan North American Championship and in the 2021 Spartan World Championship in Abu Dhabi, UAE. She is the mom of a young adult daughter and son and is vice president of a fragrance company in New Jersey. You can follow her OCR adventures on Instagram
