I didn’t fall in love with running when my Dad bought me “a dookie brown” jump suit as Macklemore would’ve called it. I didn’t fall in love with running during high school when my own talent tazered me in the butt. And I didn’t fall in love with running when I used it to kick a smoking habit.
After receiving a peached sleeveless with the signature flock printed on the front as a bright eyed and bushy tailed 23 year old, I purchased my first pair of Oiselle shorts at likely the very same Super Jack & Jill. There on a work trip to train our Greenlake store, I had walked in off the street and fell in love with the fit of those shorts. About seven years later, I still wear both, but they’re now accompanied by more pieces from Oiselle that I know will also take the test of time head on. It’s wonderful to see them grow as a brand, as a community and more importantly as a voice for women who are fighting for something more.
It’s #MSAwareness month and today I am wearing orange for my friend and partner in fun run crime (if you can call that a crime!) @whoaitsjackie. We will be tackling #WalkMS in April, together. I promised her even if a day comes when I have to push her on wheels, we will still get out and have fun together.
