Go Girl Sport began in 2006 during the middle of an 11-mile run by managing partners Mercedes and Stephanie. During the run we both expressed an interest and desire to do something related to what we loved most, athletics. After two years of planning and organizing, toiling and sweating, and meeting our fabulous designer, Laura, Go Girl Sport went live to bring you quality athletic apparel designed, created, and tested by women for women.
The women of Go Girl Sport are avid runners, cyclists, swimmers, hikers, and equestrians. We are wives, friends, aunts, daughters, and nieces. Weíre your neighbors and friends, and we hope youíll run, jump, skip, hop and enjoy our clothing as much as we do. Go!
Go Girl Sport is committed to bringing you, our customers, the highest quality functional and fashionable athletic apparel that fulfill your needs and wants. We strive to provide outstanding customer service and to remain at the leading edge of innovation.
I have always been an athlete (of sorts). Growing up, if there was a sport being offered, I was the first to sign up. Volleyball? Basketball? Track? I was in. I wasnít great at anything, but what I lacked in talent, I more than made up for in passion.
Once I got to college, exercise went by the wayside and I called myself active Ė but I was only moderately so for many years. A turning point came for me in 2002 when a couple co-workers asked me if I wanted to sign up for a weight loss program with them. After I got over being offended, I decided to join. To make a
long story short, I lost 40lbs. and re-dedicated myself to an active lifestyle.
I participate in a variety of athletic activities from hiking to cycling to tennis, but my real passion is running. I have finished eight marathons including two Boston marathons, multiple half marathons, and several cycling events.
I played softball and soccer as a child, but didnít tackle running until my late 20ís. Initially running was only a method to lose weight, but it quickly became something enjoyable and a way to challenge myself. I entered my first half-marathon in 2004 and had the time of my life running through the sleet, freezing rain, and a 20 mph wind. Since then, Iíve completed 9 half-marathons, 2 long distance relay races, 3 triathlons, numerous shorter distance races, and coached three seasons of an adult marathon training program.
My husband is a semi-retired marathoner and enjoys spending his time trying to pace me through my first sub 2-hour half-marathon (almost there) and seeing what new sport Iíll talk him into next (the triathlons were my idea).
