Olympic Inspiration

While dreaming up the next, best stickr frame, we at BUTCH & harold are always looking for inspiration.  Sometimes, in the most obvious but unlikely ways!  We were lucky enough to attend an event hosted by THE MOMS at an Equinox downtown to meet Olympic athlete Amanda Beard.  Set initially on Equinox’s stunning rooftop with a breathtaking view of downtown Manhattan, and then into an intimate yoga studio to hear Amanda’s tales.

Amanda is hoping to swim at her 5th Olympics this summer in London!  Denise Albert and Melissa Gerstein, from THE MOMS talked openly with Amanda about her struggle with depression.  In Amanda’s new book: In the Water they Can’t see you Cry, you will live through Amanda’s roller coaster life of ups and downs between amazing Olympic highs and struggles with depression.  The challenges that Amanda has overcome are a true inspiration to anyone.  Go Amanda – 2012! 

Thank you THE MOMS and Equinox!
