Oiselle Team 2013 Highlights!

Kristin Metcalf

When I look back on 2013 I am initially amazed with how fast it flew by. Then as I look through my Oiselle team race results notebook – I am inspired and in awe! Last New Year’s Eve we were welcoming Lauren Fleshman on to our 125 woman team: what an outstanding start to 2013. As our team manager, I see all our race results come in every Sunday night. I see first hand the determination and hard work of a collection of women that represents what we stand for: feminine, fierce, strong, determined, not to mention kick ass fun and cool women.

In August we welcomed 14 new elites and 100 new Volée members to our existing team. From this new group of women I knew that great things were going to pop up week after week in our race results and beyond. Our Volée team has amazing runners, some of which have expressed their goals to qualify for Olympic Trials...and some of them OT qualified this year! The passion that they expressed for the brand and the product was electrifying. 

Trying to represent the efforts of so many women in 10-15 moments…wowzers! It’s like Christmas Day all over for me…excitement brimming from the sides of a package as you tear off the paper. I can’t say it all in one blog post but I can highlight some of the amazing races and events over the past 12 months. We are all connected to the same dream and passion: to work hard to be the best that we can be in running and in life.
