About the Author

Pam Moore started writing in 2007 because she had just completed her first Ironman triathlon, and every triathlete had a blog except her.  Also, her friends said she was funny and should start, and she was like, "No, really I'm not that funny, the blog wouldn't be that great, whatever," but secretly hoped her writing would become wildly popular. Unfortunately, no one has yet stopped her in the grocery store because of her fame. Since she started writing, she moved from Rhode Island to Boulder, Colorado, with everything she could fit in her Jetta, the promise of a sort-of job, and the hope that everything would turn out alright. A couple of weeks later, she met her husband, Dan, which she is pretty sure was because she said "I want a boyfriend" out loud four times because her mom said "if you really want something, you should  say it out loud four times," which was definitely true because Elizabeth Gilbert said it on Oprah (mom + Elizabeth Gilbert + Oprah = Wisdom Trifecta). In between completing one more Ironman triathlon, running her fifth and sixth marathons, doing lots of other running and multisport training and racing, Pam and Dan got married, adopted  backyard chickens, and had their first baby in 2012 (Sweet Pea) and another baby in 2014 (Lady Bug). Both girls were born at home, which inspired her to begin working on a book about home birth.  Currently, she works part-time as a freelance writer, teaches indoor cycling classes, and has had the honor of co-producing Boulder's Listen To Your Mother Show in 2013, 2014, and 2015. Meanwhile, she is still chipping away at her goals of qualifying for the Boston Marathon and writing a book on home birth.
