Hi Friends. I have taken the last few weeks away from writing the wrap-up because I was overly busy and stressed, but I am so glad to be back! Going through messages and posts about what everyone has accomplished is truly one of my favorite parts of the week. That doesn’t mean everything is all kittens and glitter. The news about Caster Semenya (NYT) - the fantastically awesome South African athlete - is gutting. The decision reached by the Court of Arbitration for Sport that will prevent her and other women from competing is drenched in transphobia and racism, and is NOT based in science. We are putting together a #TAT to address this next week, if you have ideas send us a message. XO -Kelly
