Dirt in your skirt blog

Website Updates!

Posted on October 17, 2012 by Margaret Schlachter

Have you noticed the website has taken on a few new features in the last few months? We have been busy here at Dirt in Your Skirt not only racing but on the back end with all the techie stuff. It’s amazing how much the site and Dirt in Your Skirt has grown in the last year and a half. How many of you have been here since the beginning? I encourage you to look around the site as we have a lot to offer.

Online Store:

A couple months ago we launched our online store – SHOP DIRT – with Official Dirt in Your Skirt Apparel, training tools, accessories, and some other great goodies like pure Vermont Maple Syrup made by a Death Racers family. We also recently added handcrafted soap to our store, this stuff is the best! Spartan Race DJ – Billy Gotti picked some up in Vermont and told me this last weekend, “It’s da bomb”.

All the clothing designs are limited editions and when they are sold out they are gone forever. Each design is done in small runs so if you see something you like pick it up before your neighbor does. In the next few weeks we should have more merchandise in so be on the lookout.


Did you know I offer personalized online coaching for a few select clients a year? Click on our – COACHING – tab on our homepage to find out more. You to can get training much like Chris Davis did from me which helped him complete the Spartan Beast in Vermont. Because of the time commitment to each person I am only able to offer services to about 5 people at a time so you know your coaching will be given top priority. If this is something you are interested in please contact me through the coaching page.


The latest update to the website was due to popular demand. We have added a forum feature to the website called – TALK DIRT -. I get a lot of questions from readers on our Facebook Page, email, and at races. The obstacle course racing and endurance running world is growing each day and each of us has important experiences that might help other races. I invite you register and join the discussion on the forum today!

Other BLOG:

I have a weekly athlete blog I write for Gaspari Nutrition. If you haven’t checked it out each week I write a post or sometimes two about racing, nutrition, and some product reviews. If you were wondering why the number of posts has decreased this year this is one of the many reasons the writing volume has been down. Make sure to check out my Gaspari Nutrition Blog each week as well. I will start reposting that blog on Dirt in Your Skirt each week.

Other Places:

Dirt in Your Skirt is constantly updating content on both Facebook and Twitter. I encourage you to follow us for up to the minute updates at races, and interesting trending articles about Obstacle Course Racing, Endurance Racing and the outdoor life in general.

Lastly, check out our sponsors for without them we would not be able to have Dirt in Your Skirt. They help support me in my racing and fuel ideas for posts and beyond. Thanks for all the support as we have grown in the last year and a half! Look out for more exciting products, content, and features in the coming months as we continue to offer you all you need to help you…
