It's not every day you have an olympic athlete on your podcast. Well, it's not every day unless you work at ESPN or some fine institution like that. Anyway, Cross-Country Skier Kris Freeman is my guest for Episode 91. Kris was a member of the Olympic Team in 2002, 2006 and 2010 so naturally we spend some time talking about the Olypmics of the past and the upcoming games in Russia. Our discussion also covers his diagnosis of type 1 diabetes, its impact on his skiing, his experiences as a diabetes advocate and as the title suggests, how he manages to Stay Zen before, during and after his competitions.

Obviously, the real noise around Kris and his teammates is a few years away but you can keep up with Kris as he build momentum to the Winter Games on his blog at Enjoy.
