Last year around this time I was recovering from a disappointing race at the Mt. Sac Relays. After a rough end to my final collegiate season and now a poor first season post-collegiate I was borderline ready to give up. I didn’t have any sponsors and I felt a little helpless. My confidence was low and I didn’t think deserved anything but for some reason Oiselle still decided to give me a chance. They extended me a spot on the Volee Team and I accepted. I didn’t know what would happen from there but I was excited to start over new. What I also didn’t know was what being a part of Oiselle really meant. I quickly found out was that Oiselle is a team of strong women of all ages and abilities all working together to lift each other up. My wonderful Oiselle NC team graciously accepted me into their group and gave me the support I needed. By the time the Indianapolis Monumental half-marathon rolled around I was feeling great and back to myself, something I couldn’t have done without the opportunity Oiselle gave me. Now a year after I wanted to give up, I am honored and proud to be joining Oiselle’s Elite Haute Volee Team. Running professionally is a dream I’ve worked for and I am excited to take that step up. It’s going to take a lot more work but I’m ready to take on the challenges this new opportunity will present me with. Thank you to all of my family, friends, NC State teammates and coaches, and Oiselle teammates and supporters, I wouldn’t be here without you!
