I am a proud Skirt Sports Ambassador!
I have a very exciting announcement. It’s official! After all these years of Skirt Sports love I am officially a Skirt Sports Ambassador! Woohoo! I am joining 23 other strong women including Kathrine Switzer (the original Marathon Woman!) representing Skirt Sports from California to New England. I feel like I am part of a new family! Skirt Sports was started by triathlete Nicole DeBoom an amazing athlete and visionary for women’s running apparel. Nicole dreamed up the original Skirt Sports Skirt in 2003 and in 2004 won the IRONMAN Wisconsin wearing a Skirt! The rest is history and ten years later Skirt Sports continues to celebrate women pursuing their goals and inspiring each other.
My love affair with Skirt Sports began when my friend Michele sent me my first Skirt Sports Gym Girl Ultra just in time for the Reach the Beach Relay before I had my kids. The Skirt which I still have was lime green with the pattern sweet tattoo and it was the perfect thing to wear for the night leg of the relay. It was my first time wearing a Skirt in a race and it was empowering. I loved feeling fast wearing a Skirt especially when passing male runners (you’ve been chicked!) as I pushed hard up and down the rolling hills of my relay leg. I loved being a strong (sweaty runner) in a skirt. I knew right then that Skirt Sports was for me and since then I haven’t looked back. It is unusual to see me running without a Skirt (although now Skirt Sports has some rockin’ running tights and capris too!). Now, it’s rare to see me running without a skirt. Skirt Sports has been with me for many miles, up mountains in the sun, snow and rain, down muddy trails, and even down Boylston Street at the Boston Marathon.
Now I am proud to represent Skirt Sports. Real Women. Real Bodies. Real Inspiration.. Please check out my Skirt Sports Profile HERE on www.skirtsports.com and be sure to check out all of the other strong, encouraging and inspiring women representing Skirt Sports as Ambassadors. Oh and make sure you take a peek at the gear too. There is plenty to add to your holiday wish list!
