Being an active woman myself, I’ve always kept an I out for women who are athletic, but have a bit of flare. So, I laughed when I saw PEARL, the Paonia Running Ladies.

How did I find out about PEARL? Even though Paonia is literally a hop, skip, and jump across from Crested Butte in summer, I found out about our full-of-flare sisters when they popped up in my sidebar on Facebook. It turns out an old college friend of mine has a sister that is a PEARL herself.
In true Crested Butte style, our sisters in Paonia have set a standard for what a women’s group should be. Everyone knows women are the master multi-taskers. These women give new meaning to this idea by exercising, accessorizing, socializing, and re-energizing all at the same time. What a fun way to motivate women of all kinds to get together and exercise. Running races? Yeah, they do it- but they have a lot more fun than the average runner-girl.
Kudos to our sisters in Paonia. Now it’s time for us chicks to rally here in Crested Butte. But, hey, let’s do it with biking, ‘cuz I hate running , okay? 😉
