What a difference a year makes! Leap Day, 2020 - Oiselle was stoked on 24 racers getting ready to line up at the marathon Olympic Trials in Atlanta. The thick crowds and palpable excitement ushered in an amazing race, complete with drama, heartbreak, relief, and joy. A mere dozen days later, the country shut down. Although we all changed course as mandated by COVID, 7 of our marathon athletes made a bigger life pivot and decided to usher new life into the world. Let’s hear from these remarkable women and celebrate their multifaceted power!
A top memory of Atlanta:
Running stride-for-stride with my teammate Sarah Rimel the last loop of the race; she could have dropped me but instead, she cheered me on and didn't let me give up.
