Women Run the World

Boulder

Join us for our bimonthly (every other month) Women Run the World Events at Skirt Sports Boulder Store!

THIS EVENT IS FREE!

Tonight we feature champion athlete, psychotherapist, healer, and a woman on her our journey toward self-love. Diane J Israel created the film “Beauty Mark” partly for of her own quest to understand why she couldn’t love her body. The film evolved into something so much bigger. It captivates women athletes everywhere & brings them together, bonded forever through a topic that women universally struggle with – body image.

We are showing the 50 minute “educational” version of the film, followed by Q&A with Diane & an open discussion.

Dinner and drinks will be served. All options available (vegan, GF, etc). SPONSORED BY Jackson’s Honest & Kim and Jake’s Cakes for movie munchies!

Emily Harvey Amputee Athlete: Rock Your Differences

Another one of Nicole DeBoom’s thought provoking and well done pod casts for your enjoyment during your next training session.

 

Emily Harvey – disability right attorney, wife, fitness model, founder of non-profit LIM359, and amputee athlete.

Emily’s leg was amputated when she was two because she had a condition called fibular hemimelia, which means she was missing her fibula bone and her left leg was substantially shorter than her right.  She grew up not really knowing any different, and even asked her grandma at some point when she got her first prosthesis because she simply believed that everyone wore a prosthesis.  She played t-ball & volleyball, rode bikes, climbed trees, and did pretty much everything else her friends were doing.  She started riding horses when she was about 9 years old, quickly got into 3-day eventing, and eventually rode on her college dressage team.  She didn’t ride much after college, but discovered the sport of triathlon in 2014 which quickly became a new passion, culminating in her first Half Ironman in June of 2016.

 

 

Today we talk about:

  • What it was like to grow up an amputee
  • Why being different is a good thing
  • Loss of a role model and how that impacts your desire to continue the thing you were passionate about
  • Body image
  • The difference between inspiration and motivation
  • Why self-confidence is the #1 thing you need to nurture before you can help anyone else

 

Emily mentions a some cool things including this TED Talk by Stella Young. Wow. Worth a watch for sure.

She also wrote a great blog on AmpTriLife that really describes her position on body image, especially as it relates to her fake “real” leg. It’s a good one called “My Twisted Sense of Body Image.”

Tri Coach Tuesday: Nicole DeBoom and Mirinda Carfrae

I’m thinking we all know who these amazing women are.  But, for the record, Nicole DeBoom won IRONMAN Wisconsin in 2004, has competed in Kona and is now the founder and owner of the successful and popular Boulder based, Skirt Sports.

Mirinda Carfrae is an amazing athlete.  With three IRONMAN Kona women’s champion titles to her name, the Boulder resident seems unstopable.

 

In 2016, Nicole added the podcast Run This World to her “To Do” List and has interviewed many amazing athletes and local entrepreneurs.  Shortly after Kona this past October, Nicole was able to sit down and talk with Rinny, discussing many topics including growing up a basketball player, transitioning to triathlon, being married to a professional athlete, balancing life and what the future may hold.
