My Story of Oiselle

When I joined the Volee in 2014 I didn’t know how much of an impact it would have on me.

If you are interested in Joining the Volee or learning more about my experience read on!

2018 Indianapolis Monumental Marathon

I have spent the last couple of days processing what happened. Trying to figure out how to deal with it. How to move past the experience. How to continue to move towards my goal. How to stay confident. It has been hard. I was ready and capable to run sub 2:45 on Saturday. I was doing it. The marathon is a beast. You can be in the best shape of your life and lose it in the final 5k. Mentally I needed this. I came up a bit short. But I have more opportunity and a team of people to help get me there. Time to keep fighting.

HOME SQUAD: RDP + Oiselle

Whether I was on the soccer field or racing through a cross country course, having a team around me has always made life a little better. From Jr. Striders to Apex High, to NC State, Oiselle, & the Raleigh Distance Project, support has always been a game changer. Support that I think American distance running needs more of. Luckily, Oiselle agrees and the two teams I love are joining forces. Meet the Home Squad: RDP+Oiselle.

My Prologue 2018

Everybody has a story. It's just up to you how you tell it. I've had my fare share of disappointments in my running career but I haven't let those times define me, I've chosen to help them shape me. Lets just say my stubbornness has forced me to learn the hard way many times. But now I am on a mission to let go of some of the control, have faith in the process, learn to relax, work hard but recover better, and love who I am and what I have got. I read an article by Allie Kiefer a week or so ago and it resonated with me. I've obsessed over food, feeling bad about the fact that I am not as skinny as most runners. I've felt what she felt and it's kept me from reaching my potential. But that stops now. 2018 is my year to shine. Starting with the events of the last month and my plans for the next year, this is #MyProlouge.
