I thank Move Eat Create for this post about Inernational Women’s Day and in celebration I’ll mention some fabulously inspiring women that have made a difference in Triathlon:
1. Paula Newby- Frasier
2. Chrissie Wellington
3. Natasha Badmann
4. Erin Baker
5. Loretta Harrop
6. Emma Snowstill
7. Mirinda Carfrae
8. Sarah Reinertsen
Whether it be a professional athlete or not, who are some women that inspire you and why? Let’s celebrate!
It’s International Women’s Day (i.e. my favorite holiday)!
I realize that many of you might not even know that this day of recognition exists, but it’s been on my radar for a very long time now and I always celebrate, even if only introspectively. Professionally, I’ve worked as an advocate for survivors of domestic violence (largely gender-based violence) for many years. Personally, I’ve been an all-around advocate for gender equality for as long as I can remember. So March 8th always feels like a holiday to me – a day to celebrate and honor my people.
I’ve been deeply privileged to know a great many incredible women throughout my life and I’ve been inspired by thousands more that I’ve never met in person. With that said, it’s only been over the last few years since I started running that I’ve truly connected with finding inspiration in women athletes.
