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.

I didn’t worry about anything except getting over the next hill and finishing before the course cut off.

That was something I’d never found in another pice of running gear.
It’s amazing how much our mind can get in the way of us achieving our goals, and my hope is that perhaps if someone sees me doing something active it will spark a fire in them to go out and try something that they may have previously thought was impossible.
It was 1:30AM. I was riding shotgun with my sister-in-law up and down the back bay alleys of a mall in Colorado on a tip that in the morning a remodeled store was about to haul off thousands of dollars of store fixtures, beautiful mirrors and more. Things that one company considers trash, another company […]
I experimented for a few years and then one day, probably at a race expo, I saw a table for Skirt Sports!
WHAT? Skirts for running? That’s just crazy talk.
