Raise your hand if you’ve ever confidently asserted yourself, only to be met with a label — Bossy. Bitchy. Classless. Vulgar. Arrogant. Opinionated. Striving. 


THE BOSTON MARATHON THAT CHANGED MY LIFE

When I lined up to race the Boston Marathon in 2009, I had no idea how much one race could change my life. I had decided to run Boston after running my debut marathon in NYC in 2008.  I feel in love with the distance, the craft of training properly, the challenge and beauty of it all. I made a lot of mistakes in NY and I immediately started thinking about what if I took more time to prepare, really got to know a course, how would I do? 


TOGETHER - HOW BIRDSTRIKE BEAT THE SPEED PROJECT

The 12 women, 6 racers and 6 crew, who became team #Birdstrike left a dent in the universe. Whether our mark was a now-open door for female teams to take on the unsanctioned 340 mile Speed Project, or an unbreakable bond connecting us all to each other and what happened that weekend in the desert. This recap may offer a glimpse of what we saw, felt, and made out there in those miles, but these are just a few pages from the book of that story.

My husband left me shortly after our wedding day. I didn’t see it coming. Shocked, I moved back in with my parents and quit my job. Now I’m living out of a backpack in Latin America and getting to know myself all over again. This new chapter of my life entails some serious soul-searching.


BQ OR BUST - WHY I DECIDED TO CHASE AN IMPOSSIBLE GOAL

By: Kelly Roberts

Before April of 2016, I didn’t know what a Boston marathon qualifying (BQ) time meant. I had no reason to care. You see, I’ve always had a tough time identifying as an athlete. Athletes ran fast and I ran for fun. (Who knew you could do both?) But after the New York City Marathon in 2015 where I broke 4 hours for the first time (a feat that felt absolutely impossible), I started seeing myself differently.


THE SUBVERSIVE ACT OF NOT WEARING BLACK TIGHTS

By: Christine Chung

While I am a proud feminist, a lawyer/law professor, and try to focus on all of the awesome things my (short, stocky) body has done for me (e.g., two kids), there was a moment when all I could hear was a voice saying "why on earth would she wear a print on THOSE thighs?!”
