What began as a women’s athletic company exclusively selling apparel online quickly grew into something far greater than workout clothes. In creating a brand identity, a way to set themselves apart from competitors, Oiselle (pronounced WAA ZELLE), created a sisterhood of women who are connected by their passion and love for running. There is this sense of belonging and camaraderie among strangers united through a passion for running, fitness and self-discovery. Oiselle is NOT a company that sponsors a jersey; they support a community, build a sisterhood, and enable the dreams of athletes like myself. I am honored to say I am part of the Team: Haute Volee. After all how can you not embrace a company with mottos like, “head up, wings out”and “Go fast, take chances”? Oh yeah and they make great fitting and functioning clothes too! Have a look for yourself…trust me their lux fabric is to die for when layering to resist the wintery wrath of Mother Nature!


Head up, wings out!

Picky Bar’s Feed the Dream:

I am constantly being asked what I eat, do I count calories, can I drink alcohol etc etc. While this is a long a complicated answer let me share something short and sometimes sweet but always satisfying: Picky Bars! These are a delicious sports bar that travel everywhere, don’t upset my sensitive stomach and are created, owned, and operated by some really awesome athletes! I must disclose that I am fortunate to receive a free monthly subscription of 24 bars a month now through the Olympic Games, but have consumed Picky Bars since 2011! Go ahead and give ’em a try…my favorite is “Ah fudge nuts” and Lauren’s Mega Nuts!
