DIRT IN YOUR SKIRT ANNOUNCES

EXTREME NATION TEAM

35468_511529515556773_773431743_nExtreme Nation is quickly taking the obstacle racing world by storm, with the combination of Hobie Call designing the course and $150,000 dollars in prize money at stake, everyone has taken notice. Extreme Nation is changing the way we all think about obstacle course racing, with a team format and just over two-miles long, it is looking to change how people think about obstacle course racing.

Registration opened today and quickly teams are beginning to form all over the country and no doubt the world soon. Dirt in Your Skirt has followed suit. We have rounded up some of our friends and fantastic obstacle course racers to represent our team for the first Extreme Nation event.

Dirt in Your Skirt – Extreme Nation Team

Ella, has been blazing through the Spartan world since late 2011 in Texas. This Flag Nor Fail athlete is one of the top ladies to watch in the sport these days. Her recent win at the Spartan Sprint in Arizona over top ranked athletes April Luu and Tyann Clark showed the world she has the speed and strength for the short courses. We are excited to have her on our team as she brings her youthful spark, endless energy, and is an all around badass on the course.

Janice is not only a Dirt in Your Skirt Ambassador and competitive CrossFit athlete she has a true passion for obstacle course racing. This past year she took second place in the gulf coast Spartan Race in her home state of Mississippi as well as won a handful of other local races. She is also the owner of Bandit CrossFit and re hear she has added obstacles to practice on in her gym. One thing is for sure Janice loves to run short distances and can tackle any obstacle. She isn’t letting a recent hand injury slow her down, and is using this time to build even more speed going into Extreme Nation.

Most people know Irene as Hobie Call’s wife, however she is a force to be reckoned with. Although she may not race as much as other races, when she does she makes her presence known. She finished only once out of the top 10 in the seven races she competed in last year. In the 2013 season she has finished outside of the podium only once, taking a close forth place. She is definitely one to watch as she trains with the best and closely follows most of Hobie’s workout routines. Don’t let her smile foul you she is a fierce competitor.

Captaining the team is Margaret Schlachter, Dirt in Your Skirt Founder. Although she might not have any wins to her name she made her way onto the podium seven times last year and is known as a racer who is “always there” when it comes to the top ten finishers. She has in the last couple of months added CrossFit into her training routine along with her signature trail runs. Never one to backdown from a challenge she is excited to round out the team and tackle this short intense course this June in Michigan.

The Dirt in Your Skirt team is formed and ready to take on all that Extreme Nation has to throw at them. For now it’s back to training and prep for the rest of the season.

    • Pretty impressed with the colors and beauty of this simple salad.  Created with our bounty from the Salt Lake Downtown Farmers Market and backyard.
::
Beets
Fennel bulb
Kale
Cucumber
Mint (our yard)
Parsley (our yard)
::
Created a dressing of olive oil, apple cider vinegar, lime juice, lemon pepper, and salt.
::
So simple and was awesome with local zucchini and beef and liver meatballs all from local farmers pasture raised and pasture finished.
::
It’s always after talking with good people for upcoming podcast interviews I get motivated to try something new. But more like I get too much at the farmers market and get creative with meals in our house.
::
Cooking is joyful and knowing the people behind the food makes it all the more nourishing when your food has a story.

    • Can you live in ketosis while living on the road? Can seasonal eating and keto go together? What’s really the deal with sugar alcohols that seem to be all the rage?
::
Leanne Vogel of @healthfulpursuit is back on the podcast today catching up with me since we last chatted nearly 80 episodes ago! On episode 30!
::
Since then she and her husband downsized their life, moved into an RV, and travel North America. We chat about the change and her ever evolving take on the Keto Diet.

    • While working on some website updates to coaching offering today I came across these #flashbackfriday photos. Honestly, I was hesitant to share but a friend encouraged me.
::
These were from a photo shoot I did shortly before the launch of my book in 2014. I did a series of headshots and promo shots for various press.
::
While the photos exude confidence, honestly this was one of the most uncomfortable moments in recent history.
::
I don’t wear makeup much, so the when the makeup artist put what felt like layers of gunk caked on my face I looked in the mirror thinking - who the hell is this? - but soldiered on.
::
The photographer kept prompting me to connect more with the camera and look deeply into it. I was freaking out inside. But tried my best to keep it cool. It was frustrating and at times I wanted to cry. I remember just wanting it all to be over.
::
For years I have kept these photos to myself feeling like a fraud. But only now realize, what she captured that day is part of who I am. And pushing myself to do the shoot and now to share it is part of my journey.
::
The fact is I look great in the photos. They are from a bit of a different phase in my life, but it’s still me and part of my journey.
::
Pictures don’t always tell the whole story and I share this because even the most curated photo could have a completely different story behind it.

    • My body and mind in meditation 🧘🏻‍♀️ up in the Uintas Mountains ⛰. During a 25 minute practice today my friends captured this photo after they got out of the water doing some Wim Hof Training.
::
Love friends who continue to push boundaries and grow. A day of mindfulness, consciousness expanding conversations, mountain lakes, and vitamin community.

    • Mug update! Went over to @meanmugspotteryco today to see how the project is coming along and it was glazing day! Most of the mugs are being baked or out of the initial bake and onto glazing.
::
Glazing is an amazing bit of alchemy knowing the dull looking raw glaze will pop into a vibrant color after its glazed!
::
So excited for the firing process and for you all to get your hands on one soon when they go up for sale.
::
These mugs have so much work and love put into them. I know you will love them as much as we do!

    • Lisa Menna of Cause to Wonder joined me to talk about how she travels to the most remote places on earth promoting equality for women through magic.
::
HELPING WOMEN BRINGS GOOD LUCK.
::
That is her message and she wants to spread the message throughout the world 🌍 🌎
::
Many of the places she travels to women hold no rights and even until recently in some places husbands could murder their wives with no recourse.
::
Lisa is working from the ground up to change the conversation. Find the episode on the website or your favorite player.

    • The precariously hanging branch held only by the limbs of the standing dead tree.
::
I feel like there is a metaphor there. But as the trail passed right under it all I could think is...
::
I hope this isn’t the moment it falls.
