Knowing what I know about team relays and with the first race seemingly right around the corner, I thought it might be time for a chat with the teams of the Oiselle Podium Project to see how they were preparing for the unexpected. How does one make sure they don’t have to poop in the middle of their leg exactly? What’s the best way to drop the hammer on that 10 mile run that starts at 3:00 AM? Turns out, these teams are prepared! (And sleep is for suckers!)
It is hard to believe that it's been 2 years since we were watching our 17 (out of 18 qualified) marathoners tense for the marathon starting gun. It feels like 10 years, and also only 2 months. Time is weird. (If you want to go down the nostalgia rabbit hole, you can watch this, meet our past trials team here, and here, read this recap, and this Kara interview)... But, now we are only 2 years from the NEXT Trials. We are super pumped for the next buildup, and wanted to check in with a few of Oiselle's racers from LA 2016. Anything is possible!
