Big high 5 to everyone who’s been training and racing this marathon month (we’ve been fangirling you from afar)! For realz, though: Whether you just ran Boston, or the starting line is still on the horizon this spring, the output of training and racing is both exhilarating and exhausting — physically, mentally, and emotionally. The solution? Create more space for release.
Like everyone else five years ago, we watched in awe as Kara ran Boston for the first time. Oiselle was a speck of a company, with a rented conference room down the street, but we already knew and felt our connection to this rising marathon star. We yelled at our TVs. We cheered and gasped - amazed at what she was able to accomplish with a 2nd place finish, even as we knew she struggled to embrace the result. To be where we are now, with our marathon sister hero running for Oiselle, is still completely unbelievable. And it's an honor to hear her story…as she looks back on not one or two, but THREE Boston marathons.
