In honor of International Women's Day, we have a few woman stories to tell....

This is Michele, a Newton Ambassador and the founder of The Standard. Michele is a valedictorian of the University of Vermont with a Biology and Nutrition degree, and also a survivor after a ten year battle with anorexia (twice inpatient) Michele is an eating disorder advocate and educator, and a mom to the fluffiest of fluffy dogs.

This is Doc Golden. To know her is to love her. She is a triathlete, endurance coach, public speaker and world traveler. When asked to describe herself, Doc said, "I like people. A lot. And trying new things, going new places. Without community what’s the reason to live?" Doc is running her first Ultra Marathon this weekend at the Antelope Canyon Ultra- send your good vibes her way!

This is Becca Pizzi. She has run 7 marathons on 7 contents in 7 days. She won the Antarctica Marathon over the winter, ran Tokyo last weekend, has written a children's book, puts on a 5k every year in Massachusetts that benefits her foundation, and is a Guinness World Record holder. Just, you know, a woman doing woman things.
