January 1, 2013 – Seattle, Washington – Oiselle, a rapidly growing women’s running apparel company has officially signed professional runner Lauren Fleshman as a sponsored athlete and business partner. The announcement comes shortly after Fleshman requested a release from her contract with Nike, a 9.5 year term during which she achieved two US Championship titles (5000m; 2006, 2010), became 7th in the world (5000m, 2011), and ran a NYC Marathon debut of 2:37 (2011).
Happy small business Saturday! Of all the holiday-created-shopping-mania days this is my jam. Small business gets me excited. Small business to me means a business someone created out of passion and elbow grease and a whole lot of sleepless nights. It’s a business that isn’t really a business at the end of the day but a solution, a tribe; a space bigger than a store front an idea larger than a shopping cart.
