PRESS RELEASE

Dirt in Your Skirt Welcome Contributor Heather Gannoe

HR

In June 2011, Dirt in Your Skirt started out as a personal training blog of founder Margaret Schlachter. It initially chronicled her daily training and racing leading up to the 2011 World’s Toughest Mudder. Overtime Dirt in Your Skirt grew and became a community for women to turn to for inspiration in sport and life. Throughout this process Dirt in Your Skirt has recognized we needed to grow beyond our founders personal journey.

In fall 2012, we opened applications for our first team of Dirt in Your Skirt Ambassadors. We received over fifty applications and narrowed it down to eight ambassadors for the upcoming year. Our eight ambassadors were hand picked by the Dirt in Your Skirt team. Each women brings a unique voice and background to the company and we are excited to watch their year.

In early 2013, we introduced online coaching services to clients all around the world. Offering the same fitness and training programs used for Chris Davis and those tailored to specific athletes needs. Recently, we announced the first ever weeklong women’s only training camp. The first of it’s kind dedicated to obstacle course racing enthusiasts for August 2013.At the same time we recently underwent a new website redesign, upgraded the online forum, included ambassadors, and revamped our merchandise offerings. All while staying true to our roots, with honest stories and reviews from Dirt in Your Skirt HQ.

At it’s heart Dirt in Your Skirt will always have stories from it’s founder Margaret Schlachter and tips from her experiences but also much more content from our ambassadors and their journeys. As the sport of obstacle course racing has continued to grow so has the depends to report on all the new events. In order for Dirt in Your Skirt to continue to grow with the sport we have added a contributor to our ranks.

We welcome Heather Gannoe as the first Dirt in Your Skirt Contributor. Heather will be updating us from the east coast on a variety of races throughout the year and adding to the growing content on Dirt in Your Skirt. Heather is already an accomplished blogger and social media maven. Her blog RunFasterMommy is a resource for mother runners around the globe. She was recently recognized as by Runners World as a Twitter account to follow in the running community. She will be reporting on a variety of races, including the Spartan Death Race, as well as keeping us all up to date with who are the new hot competitors coming up on the east coast. We are very excited to welcome her to our team and share her experiences with us.

    • 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.

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

    • 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.
