Meet the HOT widows

Charles Cowling

HOT widows


When Mishael Porembski lost her husband, she found the steady stream of pot lucks and coffee clubs wasn’t easing the grief. So she decided instead to sweat through her grief by training for an Iron Girl triathlon. 

She felt so much better for doing it that she created HOT Widows and invited other widows to join her. They get HOT in the conventional sense, through their exertions, and HOT in an acronymic sense. HOT stands for Healthy Optimistic Thriving. There’s a team of them training for the next Iron Girl event — and their stories are both brave and touching. 

Sounds like a brilliant form of grief therapy to us. Go Team HOT Widow!
