Skirt Sports 13er & 10k: Fashionably Fun!

The Skirt Sports 13er is one that I look forward to every year. It’s sponsored by Skirt Sports, so it’s both super fun, and super fashionable!

Skirt Sports is a fitness clothing company, started by Ironman Wisconsin winner Nicole DeBoom. She won that race in a handmade skirt, and used her winnings to start the company.
