It’s no secret there are few brands that I would want a “sponsorship” or to represent. Actually two running brands come to mind. There is also always Wawa Gas Station Coffee but for some reason I don’t think they sponsor runners. In the beginning of the summer Oiselle announced that they would be taking new birds to their flock. Ever since falling in love with the brand a few months prior I was all over that.
(In fact I could very well have been the first person to apply).
So after realizing I had roughly two months to do summer activities I let that simmer in the back of my mind.
So why Oiselle?
First, it’s no secret they do make some of the cutest running clothes. Long sleeves with fingerholes, their runderwear doesn’t ride up my butt and the scarf that I own goes to work with me more then stilettos. Oh and their sports bra (that strappy bra) is one of the few that I feel comfortable running in without my goods broadcasted.
When I first started talking to Jen nearly 6 months ago (wow), I immediately knew how down to earth and great she was. She asked one day if I wanted to run together not mentioning the fact that she was a 16:XX 5ker. Just casually run while she is pregnant. I was completely floored when I started asking her about races, PR’s ect. Every female I have come across from their race team is like that. They are nice, modest and truly inspirational females and I wanted immediately to be apart of that. I wanted to be apart of a community that had similar interests to me (running, life, ect) as well as a similar mantra.
When I was accepted yesterday I was completely thrilled that I will join such a great group of women and hopefully take my running to a new level. In a period where I cannot tell you where I’ll be in the next few months (VA…Texas…who knows), I know that country wide I’ll be able to find some local birds. I cannot wait to represent Oiselle.
