I am thrilled and honored to announce that I’m part of the flock.
That’s right, I learned last week that I will be part of the 2013-14 Oiselle running team. And I couldn’t be more excited to be amongst this group of inspiring and amazing women.
Meri actually introduced me to the brand earlier this year when she surprised me with an Oiselle 50/50 tee. It was love at first wear. (Thanks again darling!)
Oiselle is a Seattle-based running apparel company founded BY women and FOR women. The clothes are cute, comfy and fit wonderfully! (hello Winona tank and game day shorts, I am talking to you!)
When I started penning a wish list last spring, I came across Oiselle’s Voleé Team, a group of 150 women who run for the company. I looked to see who might be near me and met Jen, who lived around the corner from me until last month.
Jen’s talented, down-to-earth and an all-around amazing person. (Plus, she’s got the darn cutest 3-year-old on the planet! Hi Currie!) Like everyone I’ve met on the team, she’s also incredibly humble. (Jen’s on the elite team – Haute Voleé, which means “high flyer” in French.)
I love the brand and the women behind the brand. They are strong, inspiring, fierce, beautiful and incredible.
I am so honored to be calling Jen, my new(ish) friend Hollie and all of the other amazing women of Oiselle my teammates and sisters.
Plans are in the works to meet up with a few birds in the coming months. (Who else is running the New York City Marathon this fall? Rochester Marathon? Let me know!)
Thank you to the entire Oiselle team, for believing in me and welcoming me with open arms as one of 250 on the Oiselle Voleé team. I can’t wait for the day I race in my Oiselle singlet. Maybe I’ll be able to inspire others as the past team members have touched me.
Until then, Head Up, Wings Out.
Do you have any Oiselle apparel? What’s on your wish list? Tell us in the comments!
Congrats, V! They are lucky to have you.
And now, I think I will do some shopping…
Thanks B! I’m really excited! and shoot me a note before you shop! I have recommendations!
Congrats! I am a Oiselle fan, I have a few t’s and a pair of Rogas and they are awesome!
Thanks so much Karen! (I love Oiselle apparel too!)
That’s my girl! So excited for you (and so glad that you like the t-shirt – picked it up at Haddonfield Running Co.). Love the Oiselle brand and Brooke’s right, they are very lucky to have you! xo
thanks so much darling! xoxo
Lol, I was there when she bought it I think…at the 5k in march? Congrats Victoria!!!! Wishing you the best on this new venture!!
haha! Our Meri has great taste! 🙂 Thanks so much Brandi – I am really excited 🙂
Congratulations! I have never tried their apparel, but I have had my eye on the Roga shorts for awhile.
Thanks so much! I’ve not tried the Rogas (plan to soon) but have heard RAVE reviews on them. I love my Game Day shorts 🙂
I had no idea you lived so close to Jen. I actually went for a run from her house in Rochester. Ah-why couldn’t have met before I moved seriously. I’m really excited to be part of this and especially with such an inspirational group of women (like yourself!).
I KNOW!! Seriously! You are welcome to come up anytime – for real! Every now and again I pass by Jen’s street and wave (also at “our” starbucks.yes I’m a sap.)
I am so glad we were both selected to be amongst this incredible group of women athletes. You are a gem! Looking forward to our NYC adventure!
I went to that Starbucks! LOL
of course you did!!! xo
I’m so so happy and excited for you (and all the other birds in the team)! I applied and didn’t make it, but that doesn’t mean I won’t keep flying and chasing my dreams
As you already know I just put in an order with two pair of shorts (the Distance and Roga’s) and the Stellar Stripe Tank and I am ridiculously excited about it. Want time to FLY by so that I can take them out running!
Thanks so much Evelin! I really appreciate it- I can’t wait to see how you soar – great things are ahead for you for sure. 🙂
I love what you picked – I plan to get a pair of rogas and the stellar stripe tank too. I just need another paycheck first (haha!) Can’t wait to hear what you think of them! Muah!
Congrats! I’m a new bird as well and SO excited 🙂
Congratulations Courtney! I am super excited as well 🙂 We’re gonna fly! What’s next on your race schedule?
Next up, I have the Annapolis 10 Miler on Aug 25. Then traveling to Durham, NC to run the Bull City Run Fest 1/2 with my best friend. THEN my very first full marathon in November 🙂
congrats! That’s awesome!
Thanks hon! I am super excited!
SO AMAZING!!!!!! Still smiling from ear to ear, right? Great post. It’s such an honor to run for them. Can’t wait to hopefully meet up for NYC Marathon!
