Via Twitter, the American summed up how she feels about being back on top of the podium in one word: “Humbled.”
It’s just been 10 months since Felix welcomed her daughter Camryn to the world after struggling with preeclampsia - a pregnancy complication characterised by high blood pressure and damage to internal organs. According to the Mayo Clinic, preeclampsia is a serious condition that can be fatal if left untreated.
Of returning to the track and her pre-pregnancy training regime, Felix told People: “It’s different, definitely challenging. I think for any new mum when she returned to work just, you’re exhausted and you’re balancing your family and what it all looks like. So it’s no different from me."
”I am just getting used to what the new normal looks like and getting my routine down and all of that,” she continued. “But I couldn’t be happier to do that and to have the support, to be able to come home from a long day of training and to see my daughter and her smiling face. It really is like the best thing in the world.”
