Salute to Kara Goucher


It’s been quite a month ... actually, more like 5 years for Kara Goucher. When we met her in early 2014, Kara had already begun testifying against illegal practices she observed during her time at the Nike Oregon Project. We knew it weighed on her. All the time. There would be waves of stress brought on whenever a new portion of the investigation started. When the Pro Publica report came out in 2015. When she was interviewed immediately after getting 4th at the marathon Olympic Trials in 2016. When she testified in 2017. When USADA found against NOP in 2017 but the case immediately went to appeal. Kara would often be lectured by strangers, “If there was something illegal going on, we would know about it by now.” But she had no choice but to wait on the official process. And now she can be open about it. We collected some of the best reporting (below) on Kara’s work with USADA and her feelings on the investigation. Good reading if you want to understand the inside workings of our sport.

Three Ways to Sherpa Style

We have a Chief Cozy Officer at Oiselle, who also happens to be our President: Atsuko Tamura. So who better to name our first Sherpa Fleece Collection after than “A.T.” herself. To fully honor our Prez, this collection is just a wee bit oversized (not so much that you would change your usual sizing - unless you want to slim down), which makes every piece perfect for layering.
