My love affair with distance running is deeply intertwined with my love affair with Scotland. I wanted to go back to Scotland so much, I had been training for a theoretical marathon at some point, it just seemed fated that I would run my first in Scotland.
A couple of weeks ago I was walking by the gym across the street from the Oiselle HQ and as I glanced through the window, I saw a team member running on the treadmill. I had never met her before but I could tell she was on the Volée because she was wearing our team singlet. I popped in the gym and introduced myself after she stepped off the treadmill. She told me she had a really hard workout and decided to wear the singlet because she needed all the strength and power she had to crush it. As I walked away, I started thinking about the Volée singlet and the strength it gives us in moments of vulnerability.
