711. Motherhood Mondays with Laurie & Elly Henes


“Use all of your resources. If people are willing to help, let them help.”

What’s it like when you’re one of the best coaches in the NCAA, and your daughter joins the team? And what’s it like to be a high school senior vetting potential college running programs — and to have to decide whether or not to be a part of the program your mom is leading? In this Motherhood Mondays conversation, we’re hearing all about the mom-daughter-coach-athlete dynamic, courtesy of NC State Head Women’s Cross-Country Coach Laurie Henes and daughter and NC State alum Elly Henes. Laurie talks about how she approached coaching Elly, and Elly talks about the perks and challenges of being coached by her mom. Today, Elly is a professional adidas-sponsored runner who lives in Flagstaff, AZ, is coached by Mike Smith, and trains with Rachel Schneider Smith and Nikki Hiltz.
