Abby Paffrath is an artist out of Jackson Hole Wyoming. She customizes hats with her inspiring artwork so all can see and holy cow are they AWESOME. We interviewed Ms. Pathrath and here’s what she had to say …. You’re an artist, what inspired you to put your art on hats? I was inspired to start printing some of my original art onto hats to make my art accessible to all who connect to my work, and share my love for the outdoors. I would much rather see my art traveling, adventuring, on top of mountains, in different countries, and down rivers than locked up is somebody’s second home guest room. Art 4 All!

As an artist you put your heart out there everyday for people to criticize and judge. …Continue Reading
This is my second year doing the sprint triathlon with Outdoor Divas. All of their staff are confident and know how to help first-timers get prepared and get excited for the race. Just getting comfortable with the basics of how to register, how to prepare, and when to show up for the race is a bit overwhelming for someone who is new to racing!

There’s quite a bit to a triathlon in terms of getting all the right gear, clothes, and accessories ready…Continue Reading

How did you create Momentum jewelry? Like so many moments of clarity, the spark for Momentum came at an unexpected time. I was at the gym, doing a seemingly never-ending plank, when I looked down at my blank wrist and realized how great it would be to have something encouraging there. The idea for our Motivate Wrap was born and I haven’t looked back since!
What inspired you to launch Coeur? I was co-founder at another women’s tri clothing company but really wanted to create something that was about more than just pushing clothes. So I started Coeur as a means to both design awesome clothes AND create a platform for supporting and inspiring women in endurance sports.
