I met Cindie Collins through the amazing Skirt Sports ambassador community. In 2019, she was one of the featured speakers at the Skirt Ambassador retreat.

174 – Amanda McCracken 41 Year Old Virgin No Longer

Amanda McCracken is many things: award-winning writer, competitive endurance athlete, massage therapist, daughter, wife, soon-to-be-mom, and more recently than you’d expect, no longer a virgin. I’ve known of Amanda for years; we run in the same athletic circles in Boulder, Colorado. What’s funny is that she’s a little more well-known for her outspoken writing about […]

I first met Darrietta in person at the 2018 Skirt Sports Ambassador Retreat in Boulder, Colorado.

151 – Olympic Hopeful Nell Rojas’ Strength is her Strength

Nell Rojas is a late-start marathon runner - and it suits her. At 32, she qualified handily for the Olympic Marathon Trials in her first marathon ever. Then she followed it up with a 2:28 win at her second marathon and a top 15 ranking in the US. We all have interesting and often winding paths to the things we were meant to pursue.

Like there's a grand master plan that she is just stepping into at the exact time she's supposed to.

145 – Tina Muir Gets Real

Tina Muir is many things. But that wasn't always so. For a long time, she was a runner - a world-class, professional distance runner who sacrificed just about everything for performance. That is, until she decided that running was no longer enough and it was time to add a new adventure to her life. That adventure is now 19 months old, named Bailey Grace, and it's a testament to Tina's will to change that her baby girl is here with us today. 

138 – Kara Goucher’s New Frontier

Kara Goucher is pretty much famous. And more than the “famous in our own circles” kind of famous. She’s running royalty; she’s been in the spotlight of a large and passion-driven sport for over a decade. But what happens when you are no longer running for first place? When your body tells you it’s time to change tracks, but you still love what you do?
