Golf is the only sport Kristine Carlson Asselin ever played well, and only because she basically lived at her family-owned golf course every summer after the sixth grade. She did play softball (badly) for one summer before ninth grade, and has a picture to prove it. Partly because she never considered herself a true athlete, Kristine has always loved to read and write about strong girls who love their sports. As a Massachusetts native, Kristine’s favorite teams are the Red Sox and Patriots.
Anna Eleanor Jordan never considered herself an athlete as a kid. Her favorite part of gym was square dancing and the thought of the presidential fitness test, kickball or (OMG) dodgeball made her run to the nurse’s office with a stomachache. Still, in the summers she hiked, canoed, danced and swam at sleep-away camp and she loved the freedom of biking on her own. It wasn’t until she found rowing in high school that she felt part of a team. More recently, Anna has completed four sprint triathlons, still rows, and finds that yoga feeds her body and soul.

Brenda J. Barrera was often told to “Go outside and play!” while growing up in Michigan. Play meant to grab a bucket of tennis balls, a transistor radio, and bike to the college courts to practice her forehand and backhand. It also meant twirling her baton in the backyard to Motown hits. Her earliest sports memory is riding on the back of her brother’s bike to swim practice at an outdoor pool, and yes, the water was fuh-REE-zing. In high school, she was co-captain of the swim team her senior year and during college discovered a passion for running, so it was a natural fit to become a triathlete. She says it’s fun to be competitive, but it’s equally important always to have fun.
