The hype around The Kara Collection refuses to quit and it's not hard to guess why. Kara is pretty epic, so naturally her collection is epic as well. While Kara was in Seattle shooting the collection, we went on a training run together and being my run-nerd, post-collegiate self - I was losing my mind. Here I was on a casual run talking about life, racing, and the experiences in-between... with Kara Goucher. It's not every day you get a glimpse into the mind and life of an elite athlete. Which is exactly why I wanted to share this roundup!
Here are our favorite blogs where Kara gives us a window into her life.
We can't make a list of the best Kara blogs and not include this read. Watching Kara receive the silver medal for the 2007 World Championships in which she originally placed third, was watching a bittersweet, much deserved moment. Hear straight from Kara herself on the experience of racing at Worlds, and the experience of being given a medal 10 years overdue.
If there is one thing that could help ease race day nerves, it's a letter from Kara dedicated to race day. What's Kara's mental approach before toeing the line? Read more to find out.
One of the most definitive moments in Kara's career was the 2008 Boston Marathon. In this blog, Kara talks about how it felt to make a goal so public, but miss her desired mark. Overall, this piece is a perfect example of what people love most about Kara - Accessible, vulnerable, and honest.
Since the launch of The Kara Collection recently took place, it only seems fitting that we go back in the archives for this blog that perfectly shows why Kara wanted to design a high comfort and high quality collection, made for life on the go.
Thank you Kara for being so willing to speak out and inspire us with your genuine stories!
