I could say that I applied to the Oiselle Running Team because they make cute t-shirts (one even has my birth date on). Or that I applied because Lauren Fleshman is one of Oiselle’s Haute Volée runners. Or maybe because Oiselle represents ‘girl power’. But no. The real reason why I applied to the Oiselle Team is because it appeals to my sense of ideas and freedom. When someone has an idea to solve to gap in a market (aka Chief Bird/ Founder of Oiselle, Sally Bergesen) it speaks to natural ingenuity, creativity, and resourcefulness. Maybe you could call that the foundation of the American Dream, but wait, I’m English! Oiselle inspires because it seems much more than just a commercial endeavour, it is a company that I know is truly inspired by, and whole heartedly interested in, its customer base: the female running community. And what a community that is! I count running friends amongst my closest, and feel a deep bond that is beyond words.
I’m absolutely thrilled to be a member of the Oiselle Team, and will add @oiselle_team runner to any profile I can create! I love the cut of the shorts, the simple but stylish logo, and the connectivity with other team members. Keep rolling on 2014, I’m ready to fly!
