Our time with Wyomia Tyus began over a morning cup of coffee at HQ’s neighborhood coffee shop. Wyomia likes to keep things simple: black coffee and a blueberry scone to begin the day. She shared her excitement over the collection as we talked, all the while reflecting on her childhood that led to the beginning of her running career.
When we headed around the corner and upstairs into our office, her collection greeted her, displayed in full at the entryway. I wish we’d thought to capture this moment. The look on her face, the way she came to an about-face halt, and the sound of her voice as she said: “Oh my, oh wow. This is exactly what I had imagined. It’s what I had hoped. It is beautiful.” It was a deeply precious moment we will always treasure. As a team, we got a bit teary and emotional as we saw and heard her reaction. Well done, Kami, well done.
You’ve read about how this product collection, and new friendship came to be here. Now let’s hear from Kami and Wyomia as they talk about how this collection came to be.
