While battling some injuries of her own, our guest blogger and Volée member Dani Stack took some time to interview two tough Minnesotan Oiselle chicks, Melissa Gacek and Hyedi Nelson. Each get a gold star for the winter… and then maybe a few more. Melissa is a current Haute Volee member, and Hyedi is one of Oiselle’s Volee members. Both of them were kind enough to take sometime out of their busy schedules to chat with me and take some BA winter pictures in some of their Oiselle gear.
This is my second time racing Boston and, after the tragic events that unfolded last year, I feel privileged to have made the cut again. As a New England-er, Boston is the ultimate goal for any marathon runner. After one of my first 5k's my Uncle Bill told me that he was waiting to see me run Boston- I genuinely scoffed, the idea of running that far was absurd! But the seed had been planted... He must have known something that I didn't, because only a couple years later there I was, waving to my whole family as I ran down Boylston.
