Get To Know My New Racing Team-Oiselle's Haute Volée

I am very excited to announce that I will be part of Oiselle's elite racing team Haute Volée (French for high flyer) this year.  The news came at the perfect time for me.  I spent most of May sidelined with an injury and wasn't sure when I would be able to get back to competitive running.  I was able to start some easy running in June and by the beginning of July I started to get the itch to start some speed work again and my body was feeling ready.  Knowing that I would be racing for Oiselle again gave me all the motivation I needed to get back at it.  It is an honor to be in the same company as these other 23 women and also represent everything Oiselle stands for.  Check out the team manifesto here.  It sums up perfectly what they are all about.

I have had the opportunity to meet both Lauren Fleshman and Kate Grace.  They are both world class athletes and have been the face of Oiselle over the last year.  I can't say enough about how awesome these two women are.  They are a perfect representation of the company and both have inspired me in ways that I didn't even know were possible.

 Kate and Kerry Camberg


Lauren and Baby Jude


When I first started running for Oiselle I was really excited for the sponsorship aspect of it.  It was fun to be running and racing in such great clothing.  I quickly learned that being part of the team was much more than a sponsorship.  It's a community and sisterhood.  Women of all levels supporting and inspiring each other in all aspects of life.  Every person I've met that is involved with Oiselle has exceeded my expectations.

Next up for me is the Hood To Coast Relay with Nuun Hydration on August 23rd-24th.  I will be flying in to Seattle and spending 5 days with 35 other women from around the country.  I am hoping to have the opportunity to see Oiselle HQ and meet some more teammates.  After the relay I will start planning a fall racing schedule.  Can't wait to represent Oiselle for the next year!
