Do you know what can really squeeze the love out of running? Training. Training for an effing marathon. It's all so scheduled, granular, and specific. There's little room for a spontaneous fun run with a friend when you're worried that it will mean there's nothing left in the tank for your 3-hour death march on Saturday morning. Don't even get me started on the logistics of finding a route, making sure there is water on the route, or sweet-talking a friend into meeting you with your favorite fuel at mile umpteen. Not to mention the marathon recovery afterward (ice bath, sleeping, and eating the entire first floor of Costco). All of this can make you a little bitter towards running.
Girl Power! On International Day of the Girl, Oiselle is so excited to continue doing our part to keep girls healthy and active! This fall, through our Bras for Girls program, we are giving away over 800 bras to girls in need, totaling more than 2,500 bras donated this year. One of our Haute Volée, Alisha Brown, recently led a giveaway with her local middle school XC program at Martin Luther King Jr. Middle School. We are loving the stories from these programs! If you have a program you would like to nominate to receive bras and education starting next spring, please submit here. If you would like to share our education materials with your squad, click here.
