Looking fashionable while working out in comfort can be a challenge; some women want to break a sweat without resorting to sweatpants. That's why the Boulder-based sportswear clothing brand Skirt Sports was born. Founder Nicole DeBoom, a swimmer in the 1988 Olympic Trials, was a professional triathlete from 1999 to 2005; she's competed in over 100 triathlon events, including six Ironman competitions, and was named the 2004 Ironman Wisconsin Champion. And now she's applying that same competitive attitude to actionwear; Skirt Sports pioneered the running skirt and remains one of the only women's sports apparel brands with a full line of products including leggings, sports bras, tanks, running skirts and accessories. The company also sponsors clinics to help women to achieve their running goals.
