Product Description

There is actually plenty of room for fear- on the bike, off the bike, and nearly everywhere- but you’re better off ignoring it (except for those times when you get lost and/or nearly die).

Standing just five feet tall and consistently picked last in gym class as a kid, what Pam Moore lacks in height and natural athleticism, she makes up for in heart and drive.

Pam moved halfway across the country (after giving away many possessions), found a job (it didn’t last), completed two ironman triathlons (and lived), dated (searching for the proverbial Jewish doctor), met her WASP husband (at a bar), settled down (bought a house), and had two children (at home).

And wrote about it all.

With foreword by Joelle Wisler of Running From Mountain Lions, this collection of personal essays and reflections covers the ups and downs of life, the joys and fears of parenting, and how hard it is to have bangs (it really is).

From the book
About a year ago, in the spirit of trust and collaboration, in a zombielike rosemary-mint-shampoo induced trance, I told my hairdresser she could do whatever she wanted. I ended up with bangs for the first time since 1991. And you know what? They were cute! They were fun! They totally went with my face and my new chin length hair. WHY HAD I BEEN AVOIDING BANGS SINCE THE SEVENTH GRADE!?!

No sooner had I experienced the thrill of lathering my newly shortened locks and the first post-shower shake of my new hair when I realized all of the ramifications of my new coif…“

    Pam’s writing flows fast and funny from the page, yet her voice possesses an introspection and poignancy that makes you want to linger over every essay. She’s a champion of motherhood stories, with an honest, humble, and hilarious approach, be it with directing and producing LISTEN TO YOUR MOTHER: BOULDER for three years, or her delightful and relatable writing. Pam’s legs run fast, too. I should know because I ran with her once—for approximately four minutes.

    Pam’s journeys have taken her through cross-country moves, intense race training, career changes, and the building of a family. As readers, we’ve been lucky that
    she’s taken us along for the ride with her one-of-a-kind brand of honesty, warmth, and wit. Her pieces leave me often nodding in commiseration, sometimes laughing out loud and sometimes wiping away a tear, and always looking forward to the next one.

    Pam Moore generously and hilariously shares her stories in this engaging essay collection that will make your face hurt from smiling. Her voice is so genuine and her wit is so wry and self-deprecating that you’ll feel like you’re part of her inner circle. If you love good storytelling, you will devour this book.
