Welcome to The Flock!

Last week I got an email from Oiselle about them creating a new team for this year. Before I could even have time to process the idea, Lauren emailed me asking me my thoughts on everything. She is pretty much my other half so it didn’t surprise me that she beat me to the email. I also was talking to Cecilia about it, since she is my Oiselle other half.

Oiselle’s new team was being called The Flock. It was a membership program with a few perks. Because I am an incredibly impatient person, I emailed Kristen from Oiselle and asked about the cost and if this was going to be the only team for this year.

She told me that they were not opening new spots for their ambassador programs, but The Flock would be a way for them to double their team. It was $100. There were limited numbers of spots available as well.  That was all that she told me. Seriously, she had the three of our minds racing.

I will admit, I am not made of money. To spend the extra money right now would really take some thought. Hubby agreed with me and I needed to weigh out the options. I told him if it came with a race kit then I was in. He knows how much it would mean to me to be able to race for Oiselle, and agreed with me.

So, the three of us were legit STALKING the Oiselle site most of the day trying to find out information. I had told both of them my stand on the team, and they pretty much agreed with me. Every half hour I was checking my email, refreshing the Oiselle blog until finally Lauren found the information. GO GO GO!

There was a race kit, shoe bag and a bunch of different perks along with signing up. I called hubby, he said to do it, so I did. Cecilia was in too! Lauren decided to pass this time since she just got back from a kick ass trip to visit the mouse!

I went to twitter and have already connected with a few of my new teammates! I seriously cannot wait to meet as many of them as I can!

This is something different for me. I am hoping being associated with this amazing team will help me push myself harder than I have before. I want to make everyone proud! I will not take this opportunity for granite!


  1. So glad you, Cecilia, and Holly made it in. Know how much you all love Oiselle.

    I'm so excited to follow you and happy to be part of this team with you, as well! Can't wait to hear about your journey and your first race as a new member of The Flock! Woo hoo!

  3. I love being your Oiselle half! I'm still just so excited we made it. I have a race this weekend. I wish my singlet would come in time! We need to plan out a race that we can run together. Well not together together since you're speedy, but one that we can meet up for!
