Welcome Vicki Huber Rudawsky to Oiselle

Lesko

We are thrilled to welcome Vicki Huber Rudawsky to the Oiselle family. Vicki will be joining not only as an ambassador for Team Oiselle, but will also be representing the company with our wholesale customers in the Mid-Atlantic region. Vicki is one of our all-time heroes, and a woman who not only achieved the pinnacle of success in her running (6th place at the Seoul Olympic Games in 1988!) but struggled through myriad injuries over a 5-6 year period. She also took time off from the sport to have a daughter. Through all of this her running spirit lived on, and she travelled across the country as a single mom with her baby daughter to end up making her second Olympic team in 1996. During her running career Vicki engendered (maybe pioneered!) the Oiselle spirit of grace, positive energy, courage, perseverance, and an intrinsic love of running. And can she fly…

Why the Boston Marathon is Wicked Awesome

Sarah MacKay Robinson

When you tell someone you’re a runner, often the first question is, “have you run a marathon?” and the second, “have you run the Boston Marathon?” The Boston Marathon is not only the oldest annual marathon, it is New England’s best-attended single day sporting event, a pinnacle of the sport.  There are legends and lore, stories of heartbreak and triumph. From the first person across the line to the last there is pride in saying, I finished the Boston Marathon.
