My first experience at a Oiselle Group Run!

Hey… it’s been a while… but I’ve still been running! 

Of course winter is not my favorite time to run. And because it is my off season, I have been running casually, which had been so enjoyable. 

And as you know, I am one to log stroller miles with my daughter, or solo to have some me time. Running with a group, is normally not my cup of tea. 

But on Saturday, I ran my second time ever with a group, and it was awesome. Details below.

In early 2016, after Zoe was born I joined Oiselle VolĂ©e. I love Oiselle, and what the VolĂ©e team stands for. One of my favorite things about running, is the community, and joining a group like VolĂ©e keeps me involved. 

At first, I started to connect with the oiselle girls by following their training through social media. I was training for Marine Corps Marathon, and so were a lot of other birds. 

Once MCM came and went, I was eager to go on a group run, or attend one of the Oiselle VolĂ©e meet ups, but my schedule just didn’t work accordingly. 

Finally, I was able to… this past Saturday, was my first time officially meeting up with the group. It was awesome!

I got to run in a new part of DC, that I had never run before. 

It ended up being a really fun get together. All of the girls were super nice, and we got to eat brunch afterwards! I can’t wait to get more involved with this group, and I see myself definitely meeting up to run with them plenty of times in the near future. 

Do you run with a group?
