From the beginnings of Dirt in Your Skirt, I have always wanted to promote obstacle course racing and more importantly women in sports. From an early age I have seen the importance of women in sports and why we need to support one another. Dirt in Your Skirt added athlete ambassadors this year to the company as a way to give a group of women a chance to tell their stories. Today we are proud to announce the next step for Dirt in Your Skirt! Although we are a small company, and almost all of the profits generated are invested back into the company. From time to time I am compelled to help those around me when I can. Today we are happy to announce we are sponsoring our first athlete!

 

487361_550959864937661_479877675_nClaude Godbout, will be racing for Dirt in Your Skirt at the Spartan Race World Championships this September in Vermont. The event is due to be broadcast on NBC Sports and will be the biggest race to date in the sports short history. Godbout, recently put out a call to help her get to the Spartan Race World Championships and defend her 2012 title, and Dirt in Your Skirt answered.

 

This past year she has put all of her effort into a bid at the Sochi Olympics, as a member of the Canadian National Biathlon Team. We know the dedication it takes to make the Olympics and when she put out the call to get to the Spartan World Championships this year we had to answer. Although Biathlon is her main focus she loves obstacle course racing and has raced Spartan Races in the US, Canada, and Slovakia. She may not be a mainstream name in the sport but all of us racing, we certainly know who she is and are excited for her to return and defend her title.

Godbout, has been at every Vermont Spartan Beast, in 2011 (her first OCR) she took second, in 2012 she won (Beast and Ultra Beast). I first met Claude at the 2011 beast and from the beginning a friendship was started. We watch her biathlon career during the winter and are always excited when she can make it to an OCR around her biathlon training and Olympic bid. Claude is excited to come back and tackle the mountain once again racing for Dirt in Your Skirt.

We couldn’t be happier to be able to help support her and are excited to see what she does on the mountain this year with a new batch of racers. She is at home in the mountains and training currently north of Calgary in preparations for her bid at the Sochi  Games. We at Dirt in Your Skirt are committed to helping those achieve their goals and continue to inspire those around them. It is safe to say Claude Godbout inspires us all at Dirt in Your Skirt!

    • 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.

    • Our mugs are currently firing over at @meanmugspotteryco tomorrow I get to see how they came out!

Before we fired this morning we offered the kiln goddess offerings for a good fire 🔥

I could not live the women behind the scenes at Mean Mugs. Every step of the process is a gift.

    • 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.

    • Stop and sit. I love the go go go lifestyle, so much so I often work myself into fatigue. Especially during the obstacle racing championship season.
::
One of my goals for 2018 has been more self care, more personal time, and taking the moments to put down the computer and step away from being accessible 24/7. I have been learning from experts both in books I am reading and guests on the podcast.
::
Progress report - two steps forward and one step back. I have reclaimed my weekends. Set aside more me time and for this summer prioritized my day around time to include trail runs for the run of running, reading, and just learning how to be bored again.
::
As I type I love this device and sharing but learning once again to be bored and let the creative mind wander has been challenging and rewarding beyond any post.
::
Also who doesn’t love putting down the computer and phone and playing with your dogs or digging in the garden!
