Since Littlewing was formed in 2013, the Bend training group has steadily gained in experience, momentum, and wisdom. Its founding athletes (Mel Lawrence, Betsy Flood, Christine Babcock, and Lauren Fleshman) established the Littlewing culture up front: prioritize health of body, mind, and spirit; work to advance access to sport and health for all communities, especially to those who have been historically excluded; and understand that growth comes from within.
By 2019, Littlewing had established as a 501c-3 and expanded its roster to 6 athletes: Rebecca Mehra, founding athlete Mel Lawrence, Madeline Strandemo, Sadi Henderson, Carrie Mack, and Collier Lawrence, with Lauren Fleshman coaching. It was a breakout year. And even though 2020 has been so different than anyone expected, these athletes have been training hard and setting PR's.
Now, Littlewing is absolutely thrilled to be welcoming their newest athlete: middle-distance standout and stellar human being, Angel Piccirillo. Let's hear from Angel on her big move!
Welcome to bend! Hope I see ya out on the trail or road. We love strong women!
