Someone once told me “if it scares you then you should probably try it”, in reference to personal and professional goals. While there are some things that scare me that I prefer to never try, like heroin pretty sure that is something worth being scared about, there are so many other things in life I have wanted to do but let fear or fear of rejection hold me back. That is changing.

For years, I have enjoyed people, getting to know them, their stories, and grasping all the knowledge they have then share it with the world. Maybe I was born to be in media, who knows, either way, I have always loved a good story, and for a long time also loved podcasts. Well, it’s time to take those two loves and combine them and conquer a fear at the same time.

Welcome to my entrance into the world of podcasting with the creation of:

Dirt in Your Skirt – The Podcast.

Episode 000 – An Introduction to the Dirt in Your Skirt Podcast


 

For years, I have enjoyed interviewing women on this website in the form of articles but now it’s time to take it to the next step with a podcast. The Dirt in Your Skirt Podcast will feature some of your favorite female racers talking about their experiences as well as experts in the fields of women’s health, fitness, and overall wellbeing. Additionally, over the years I have collected a fair amount of “interesting characters” I call friends and will be inviting them on the show to share their stories from modern day nomads, ultra running junkies, CrossFit athletes, Organic Farmers, and more.

Over the years and over 1000 articles, 1 book, and numerous appearances in print and online media I have learned that the obstacle races themselves are only a fraction of the story and a fraction of what we do as well to stay healthy and happy. My goal is to bridge the gap between the crazy fitness and wellness world and that of the obstacle racing world and show you how they all work together.

I hope to help you explore new topics with me, get inspired by others, and conquer your goals with the help of our guests. So join me on this journey and share with me who YOU want to hear and the topics that matter to YOU!!

    • Having fun providing @mudrunguide coverage at World’s Toughest Mudder. I am in love 😍 playing with my new lenses on my camera. Most of the photos are over on Facebook.

    • Made it to Atlanta to cover World’s Toughest Mudder. Every year I get nostalgic about the first year of WTM in 2011.
.
Can’t wait to cover the action for @mudrunguide. With the temps predicted in the 30’s overnight I excited to see how the new venue plays out.
.
Excited to get to work tomorrow.

    • How many times as a kid did someone tell you to “take a deep breath” - if you are like me, a lot.
.
Breathing is essential to life and yet so much of the time we don’t breathe deeply. A couple years ago I did the @iceman_hof method course, documenting the journey.
.
Above the cold training and pushups the greatest gift after the course was a renewed focus on breathing and deep breaths.
.
Yet years later it’s so easy to forget. These days when stress levels are high or I have too much on my mind, I head out into nature and breathe.
.
Whether it’s getting my heart pounding on a run or slowing it down and focusing on deep breaths. It’s a simple and free self care technique that pays you back 10x.
.
When was the last time you truly took a deep breath?

    • Did you catch the new episode with @runningrosie released yesterday?
.
We had a raw, unfiltered conversation about motherhood, childbirth, body image, balance, competition, being a professional athlete, and life. Sounds heavy but as always we laughed along the way.
.
It was great having her back on the podcast 109 episodes after her first go around. If you missed the first time on the podcast talking about her childhood, check out episode 25.

    • Fall means leaves changing, colder days, and the pond currently looks like a tea but makes some great reflections on a sunny day.
.
Sometimes there just isn’t time to get to the mountains but it doesn’t mean you can spend some time outside doing backyard chores.

    • Friends come in all shapes, sizes, and forms. One thing I’ve learned throughout the years is whether a friend is a next door neighbor you see everyday or someone you see once a year, it’s important to find those who have you back.

Sefra @puddyrara and I met in the woods of Vermont during the Peak 500. Little did I know the adventures we would embark on.
.
From the volcanos 🌋 of Nicaragua to Showing up during WTM in Vegas, stopping for an overnight in SLC, or outside Miami for a 24-hour BattleFrog (RIP). Or like this picture in Tahoe for the @spartan world championships.
.
I literally never know where in the world I will see her but I know we will have deep conversations about plants, seeds, life, spirit, and generally freak out everyone as they mostly have no idea what we are talking about.
.
Friends don’t have to be people you talk to or see daily. They just need to be your ally and have your back in a jam.
.
I’m lucky and blessed to be part of the slingshot mafia with this lady.
.
Blessing Sefra! Also I have no idea why this picture is so funny but it is to me.

    • One jar of trash a year for a family of four!

Sounds impossible at first but Bea Johnson of @zerowastehome is on the podcast to talk about how it’s not that hard. In fact Bea talks about how it frees up so many other aspects of life. So you can spend more time and money doing the thing you want while producing less waste in the world 🌎!
.
Do you think you could live in a zero-waste home?
