Misogyny and Sexism Will Not Defeat Caroline Gleich

Plus, Fatventure Mag, ultrarunning and weed, and more

I’m a day late on this newsletter—and rushing to work—so I’m going to get right to the point today.

Here’s what I’m reading this week

We Can’t Wait to Read Fatventure Mag: After a successful Kickstarter, the first issue will feature fat-identified women and nonbinary writers and artists. [Hilary Oliver for Outside]

They Are the Champions: In the face of fear and anger, two young transgender athletes fight to compete in the sports they love. [Katie Barnes for ESPN]

This New Fund Will Help Climbers Cope with Death: The new Climbing Grief Fund will offer long-overdue tools for dealing with the pain of death in a community that is uniquely affected by it. [Julie Ellison for Outside]

Ultrarunner Turns to Cannabis for Pain Relief: Flavie Dokken is trying to break the stigma that marijuana users are lazy and she has partnered with a Colorado edibles brand to spread the word. [Amelia Arvesen for SNEWS]

This Seamstress Conquered Bike Racing in the 1890s: Cyclist Tillie Anderson came out of nowhere to shatter records, dominate her competition, and earn the world champion title during the late-19th-century women's racing craze. [Kate Siber for Outside]

Misogyny and Sexism Will Not Defeat Caroline Gleich: In 2017, she became the first woman to descend all 90 ski lines in 'The Chuting Gallery.' She shouldn't have to defend her accomplishment, but she will. [Caroline Gleich for Outside]

Last but not least: Thank you for reading and tweeting

I love @UltraRunnerPod, it keeps me motivated on plenty of long runs and deals fairly with many issues in the sport. But, I was disappointed with Eric's response (https://t.co/xLpfyW2hXA) to the recent @outsidemagazine article by @runningcase on female participation.
