I need to travel over to Athletic Women Blog more regularly, because every time I go I get dosed up with a massive hit of all-out inspiration. Look people, I know this video is a advert for UnderArmor (which I do in fact wear), but the fact is that any commercial that powers me up like this is a win. For them, for me, for my game. Women love to kick ass and take names, don’t we?
Here’s another one, also poached from Rob Mars at AWB, that does the same thing and it’s not even selling me stuff. It’s just an incredible show of woman power in its most graceful and (potentially) dangerous form. I clearly need to sign up for ballet lessons. Somebody hand me a sword.
Finally, I can’t seem to get embed support on this one, but check out this women’s boxing newsreel, dated 1928, from British Pathe. Again, posted by Rob on AWB. It cracks me up that the woman (who is boxing a man) is wearing her boxing boots with a fringed leotard. She flat out rocks, too.
