Friday honor of Lauren Fleshman

Lauren Fleshman is my homegirl.

Oiselle used to have an amazing shirt with this phrase and I have long wanted one.  Perhaps given today's news of her retirement from professional running, they will do a reprint.

All links are dedicated to this piece of news.  The only reason I ever heard of Oiselle is because of Lauren Fleshman.  I distinctly remember her responding to one of my tweets on how to pronounce "Oiselle" (It's WAH-Zelle).   And since joining the Oiselle Volee over a year ago, I have felt like I finally have a running tribe which has renewed my dedication and motivation to running and improving my running beyond the recreational.  I am currently reading The Power of Habit and just finished a section on belief and community.  I wrote down this quote in my bullet journal: "Belief is easier when it occurs within a community."  It has been infinitely easier to believe in my running due to the Oiselle Volee community and I have LF to thank for that.

In her own words
