I was reading a blog called See Mom Run Far this morning and she has joined the Oiselle running team. I don't know much about the company but I hear they make awesome running wear.
She listed the teams "principles of flight" and I love absolutely every one of them!!
1. build the sisterhood.
We are only as strong as the bonds we build. And while most of us have
them, we want to do more. We want to raise the ante in showing how
women can support other women. To go further with the sisterhood
…fostering strength and leadership not just in competition, but through
every action, every day.
2. eat like a human.
No disordered, underweight competition. We know for a fact that this
approach is a short-term benefit that detracts from strength, and can
spread like a disease. Fuel your body, honor its workload, and create an
image of health for other women to follow.
3. tell your story.
Running and racing is not enough to kindle a fire under track &
field. By telling your story, you capture hearts and minds. And when you
capture hearts and minds, you build the overall success of our sport.
You are the story. You are the magic. Let her rip!
4. race with fire.
Fierce, beastly, carnivorous racing. The win, the podium, the
qualifying time, the team score. We seek serious victories on
significant stages. No matter the goal, the effort is marked by
an unconditional desire to push to the limit…to go fast, and take
5. compete clean.
No doping. No cheating. No monkeying with our natural state via
chemicals or prescriptions. Eat well, work hard, run fast. Period.
6. be a superfan.
Get fans by being a fan. By being a crazy, cheering, yell ‘til your
voice is hoarse superfan. After all, being a superfan, regardless of
brand affiliation, is one of the most powerful things we can do to
strengthen ourselves and our sport.
7. spread the love.
Oiselle won’t be for everyone, and that’s okay. But if you choose to
be here, join because you’re nuts about the brand. You dig where we’re
going, and you want to be a part of it. L-O-V-E baby, that’s all there
