My Twisted Sense of Body Image

“Whoa!” I exclaimed, “ It looks like my leg grew back!”  After years of prosthetic legs that were made to look “real” but always left something to be desired and an eventual switch to the completely bionic look, I finally looked down at what appeared to be two human legs.  My left and right calves, […]

Your Life Your Way

Earlier this year I decided that I would throw my life (and my family’s life) into disarray and figure out how to leave Boulder, leave work, leave home, for over a month. I felt a craving in my soul to do something different. I know that this is exactly what I need to grow, as […]

My Story: Before I even turned 30, I found myself as a twice-divorced single mother of three working two jobs: night-shift at a “water-treatment” plant (just a euphemism for a sewage plant–real glamorous, huh?) and researcher/investigator/fact checker for a privately-owned genealogy foundation (where I was constantly being reprimanded for lapsing into my first and former […]

#WhyIMove: Born to Run- Kriste P.

    ‘What are you running from?’ My mother used to ask me this whenever I’d go jogging on weekend visits home from college. It had been easy enough for her to accept my habit in childhood—racing through the streets with friends as kids and sweating it out on track and field hockey teams in […]
