After lots of trying and some frustration, I still have not figured out how to get this article into the body of this post. So please check out this nice piece by John Stroud at the Post Independent in Glenwood Springs. If the page loads too small, you can also view it here and go to page A13. Also, come listen to the panel on Sunday and check out the rest of the Five Point Film Festival.
In the meantime, I will try to get the article scanned and up here. Good thing computer skills are not mandatory in my races.
Okay, thank you to Jessica Downing at Backbone Media for scanning the article. Here it is.
I have been invited to speak on A Women’s Wilderness panel of amazing women at the 5 Point Film Festival on Mother’s Day. Joining women of this caliber is a huge honor but I’m also very nervous. This is going to be an awesome way to spend Mother’s Day learning about how these great athletes have managed to balance it all. Please come check it out if you can. You all know my story but it will be a chance to ask the other women direct questions and learn first hand what it’s like to be a World Cup climber, recipient of a heart transplant and to receive stem cell transplants to walk again.
Check out the list of women I’ll be speaking with:
Lynn Hill: World Cup climber, made the first free ascent of the Nose of El Capitan and mother.
Irene Beardsley: Started Stanford Alpine Club, first ascent of Irene’s Arete in 1957, mother and grandmother.
Kelly Perkins: Heart transplant recipient and mountain climber including Kilimanjaro.
Also, check out this video for more information. Hope you can make it next Sunday!
