Getting my wings on!

Hi everyone! Happy Tuesday…I hope all of your weeks didn’t start out like mine yesterday… work was full tons of tears, whining, and oh throw up. Ohhh, Kindergarten.

I kid. It really wasn’t that bad. But there really was throw up. Anyways…moving on.

Last week I got some of the most exciting news of like, ever.

Ok, so THE BIG NEWS IS: The fantastically amazing, and wonderful women of Oiselle accepted me to be apart of their team!!!! I literally jumped out of my seat and let out a good old teenage girl squeal! :)

I first heard of Oiselle from another blog RAVING about their Roga Shorts that DO NOT ride up. Say WHAT!? They had me at not riding up. If you are anything like me and have some thighs on you- you know how stinkin’ hard it is to find a good pair of shorts that don’t ride up and give you the dreaded “chub rub.” NOT cool. So basically if they said that these shorts were magic I had to go check them out. Naturally.

So I went online, checked out the shorts. Decided they looked awesome; ordered them; they showed up on my doorstep; I put them on and knew they were pure magic! It’s true what they say..they do not ride up! Bing, bang, boom. SOLD. Winners!!!

The lovely Roga’s themselves.

Oiselle (the word for Bird in French) is run by a wonderful, lovely, group of women who design clothes based on REAL WOMEN. No shrink it and pink it method of designing here folks. They themselves, know what we want in good running apparel. Please read more about them here. 

Upon looking more into their website, I saw that Oiselle selected women to help represent their company, and I thought why WOULDN’T I want to share with others my love for this company. One that genuinely interacts with their audience, and cares about what they want to see in their apparel. They want to see others love the run and have built a strong community out of it. Love it! I applied in June, and sadly was very nicely turned down then, but urged to apply later in August and well, here I am today. Patience pays off!

So anyways, I’m just excited. Beyond excited. Can’t wait to get racing for this amazing team and community and maybe this will be the swift kick in the butt I need to get more work in on my running.

I will be honest- I wasn’t sure if I should apply..I mean I’m not a superior runner or anything, but then I figure hey, WHY NOT!? And look what happens! Sometimes you will surprise yourself- With that I encourage you to spread your wings- fly high and try something new. JUST GOT FOR IT!

Peace. Love. Oiselle :)
