About this episode
At the time of release, November 2023, Israel, Maor’s homeland, is at war with Hamas. Maor Tiyouri, a proud Israeli and Olympian living in Boulder, moved to the US to pursue her running dreams and is currently hoping to qualify for the 2024 Olympic Games. More than an athlete, Maor discusses balancing elite running with a job in communications, as well as the impact the Israel–Hamas war has had on her life and running.
In this episode we talk about:
- from a childhood in Israel to running in the USA
- chasing the Olympics while working a normal job
- the impact of the War on Israel on running and broader life
- coping with world events, shared grief and suffering
- the importance of education and empathy
