Meet Nellie Acevedo. I discovered Nellie because she is a Skirt Sports ambassador and I’ve always been drawn to her energy and ability to connect to women on a very real level. Nellie is a New Yorker with Jamaican roots who climbed the ladder in...

When I first started running, I didn’t have a need for a mantra. Then, I discovered racing, and I found that having a word to cling to as I pushed myself to the limit was useful. Originally, I clung to the word transcend as if the ethereal...

When I think about the last few years of my “running life”, all of my best memories are those with my Moms Run This Town (MRTT) Group. We may have started as a running group, but we’ve morphed into our own community....

I thought it would be easy to pick a word. Just one word, something that I felt described me and how I felt about things lately. I wish I could say it was a word that seemed more honorable, generous or commendable. But my word...

When I was 26 I felt like my life was falling apart. Only six weeks after I gave birth to my sweet daughter, which was a difficult pregnancy and delivery, my mother passed away unexpectedly from an aneurism. It was surreal. She was completely fine...

I have been trying to come up with my word, and that’s not an easy task. Today, riding home from our first 25k of the year, my “mainbitchesforlife” helped me. My word is RESILIENT! I’m resilient as hell!!!...

Growing up as a kid who wore a prosthetic leg, humor played a huge role very early on in my life. Rather than being embarrassed or ashamed of my prosthetic leg, I used it as a prop to entertain myself and my friends, and...

When we were single, my best friend Stacey (the blonde) and I (the brunette) ran together several times a week, the distance determined by how many therapy miles we felt we needed. Your co-worker said what?! Meet me for the 4 mile loop. You’re engaged!?...

My first skirt story took place only 2 years ago, but I am 100% converted to wearing Skirt Sports after my first experience. I have to admit, I resisted the skirt movement for years. I pride myself as being an individual, not one to follow...

I wasn’t always a runner. I was that girl who walked during the mile run in gym class and thought of running as a punishment for when things went wrong on the volleyball court. In 2009, that changed. Looking for an emotional outlet and a physical...
