Ali Kearney is gorgeous, vibrant, healthy and entrenched in the world of running and fitness. When she smiles, it blinds everyone around her with love, light and positivity. Like so many of us, you would never guess the struggles she has been through to get here. That is, unless she's wearing a bikini and you can see the actual scars she bears. Ali spent much of her formative teen years and early 20s battling depression and anxiety. Here's how she coped; by cutting herself.
Pamela Robichaud is many things: Physical therapist, entrepreneur, athlete, road warrior, daughter, sister, wife and lover of spuds. Pamela and I go way back. I met her when she was a Skirt Ambassador, recruited by her husband Jon Robichaud (note: men don't usually recruit women to our brand!). The funny thing is that she quit being an ambassador to go on a year-long road trip - a life-changing experience prompted by many things including their decision to stop trying to have kids and a very scary bike crash.

I looked for some 2017 inspiration and found it in the form of my husband, Tim DeBoom, who retired from professional racing after 20 years and 2 Hawaii Ironman titles. He's in a different place now and it was fitting to interview him for this one as we just passed our 20 year anniversary too.
Rachel Kodanaz experienced the unthinkable. At 31 years old, with a 2 year old daughter, she became a widow after her husband went out for an 8-mile run at lunch one day, had a heart arrhythmia, and never came home. She decided to do the Hawaii Ironman, her husband's bucket list item, as a way to honor his memory and hold him close to her through this time. Over the years, she has become an expert in helping others deal with loss and grief.
