We Ran An Ultra to Save Our Sanity

When we were single, my best friend Stacey (the blonde) and I (the brunette) ran together several times a week, the distance determined by how many therapy miles we felt we needed. Your co-worker said what?! Meet me for the 4 mile loop. You’re engaged!? Wedding planning calls for the 10 mile loop. No matter […]

My First Skirt: Siobhan M.

My first skirt story took place only 2 years ago, but I am 100% converted to wearing Skirt Sports after my first experience. I have to admit, I resisted the skirt movement for years. I pride myself as being an individual, not one to follow the trends, to follow what the other ‘suburban moms’ are […]

My First Skirt: Ali K.

I wasn’t always a runner. I was that girl who walked during the mile run in gym class and thought of running as a punishment for when things went wrong on the volleyball court. In 2009, that changed. Looking for an emotional outlet and a physical challenge, I took up running. Who would have believed […]

The Accidental Skirt Junkie

When I first started running several years ago, you never saw women running in skirts.  So when one of my early running partners showed up for some of our runs wearing a running skirt,  I didn’t know what to think.  Then I realized how many people were asking her about her skirts and where she […]

My First Skirt: Theresa G.

This story really begins back in the summer of 2005. I had graduated college that spring and no longer had free, essentially unlimited access to a hockey rink. I was still playing, but I needed another way to, well, not be lazy. Enter running. The neighborhood decided to try putting on a 5K for the […]

My First Skirt: Aleks T.

Nearly a decade has passed, but I remember vividly how my Pink Skirt changed my running world. Heck, it changed me and who I was as a runner! I wasn’t just one of many. I was the bright one, the happy one.

My First Skirt: Rachel W.

I think that was the first race I ran in my new skirt. I trusted it enough to get me through 26.2 miles of mountains, winds, and a scenic wonderland. It didn’t let me down. I didn’t worry about fuel since my pockets were stuffed with Gu’s. I didn’t worry about chafing since everything was held securely in the skirt. I didn’t worry about anything except getting over the next hill and finishing before the course cut off.

Ultra Cute, Ultra Chafe-Free!

It was muddy, humid and hot. Typical April, Florida weather conditions and a recipe for chafing disasters. The race, “JW Corbett, ” is a non-profit race that uses its proceeds to buy instruments for children in South America; it is typically known as the hardest 50 miler in Florida. The course is soul crushing, full […]
