Margaret Schlachter - author, journalist, and creator of the award-winning website Dirt in Your Skirt brings the stories of women to your ears. Each episode features the story of a strong and inspiring woman. Many of the guests are related to the obstacle racing, endurance racing, and health and nutrition world. We also like to mix in authors and industry experts. Each guest shares their story, expertise, and wisdom with the audience in an educational, informational, and entertaining manner. Each episode we try to get to the "why" that drives these women to continue to explore a new idea, conquer old fears, and inspire those around them through their actions and work.

Allison Tai is many things, a mother, obstacle racer, coach, ultra runner, world record holder, and wife to name a few. Allison makes a mark wherever she finds herself. She is the mother of two young girls, won the Spartan Race Ultra Beast in 2016 (the weekend after a UB win in Sun Peaks), top of Spartan Canadian Point Series in 2015, second place at WTM in 2014. World record holder for fastest female marathon pushing a stroller in 2013. 

But in 2006 the only thing on her mind was feeding and bathing herself without assistance after being hit by a truck at highway speed on a bicycle. From that accident, she suffered from a broke back, arm, and pelvis and additional nerve damage. The doctors initially told her that she probably wouldn't be running long distances for a while. 

However, Allison took the injury in stride and recovered to run an ultra marathon less than a year after the accident. Since that time Allison has become a dominant female in the sport of obstacle racing and beyond. On the podcast this week we talk about her injury, recovery, obstacle racing, and how she breastfed her daughter during World's Toughest Mudder in 2014 and still finished second for women that year. All that and more this week with Allison Tai.
