The Elephant In The Room - Erica Carlson
April 14, 2014 - 

Let’s talk about the elephant in the room.... Anxiety. We’ve all had to deal with it, we’ve all felt it, but none of us seem comfortable talking about it. We don’t want others to know  that we’re experiencing it or that it was part of what caused us to fall, miss a hold, second guess the movement.
