Oiselle Fall 2011 Collection

I'm so excited! Oiselle's Fall 2011 line arrived on Monday (yes I schlepped loads of boxes up those stairs...) and now it's on the web! This is the part of my job where I pop an imaginary bottle of bubbly. Internet work can be lonely, no one really knows what you do but it's exciting to see a whole line go up.

Alright enough about me. The fall collection is rawr. I love the pops of orange mixed with the subtle dusk colors and classic blacks and indigos.

I'm obsessed with the new Stride Short, the perfect compression running short. (They make you weightless - seen above).

The running hoodie (Green Lake Hoodie) is long and snuggy. I treated myself to the lavender one yesterday.
The Stripey Tank was one of my spring 11 faves so I'm really happy we made the Stripey Short Sleeve. It's so on point with current runway and street fashion. ♥♥ First appearing in Spring 11, and still hot for fall.

Hooray for Fall 2011! Sip some imaginary bubs with me, or just go peruse the new threads. Shop the Oiselle Fall Line Here.

Cha Cha and ....

Hot cha cha! And some not so hot cha cha... maybe something that rhymes with cha cha.

Last Friday Sally, Sarah and I had one of those workouts that you never want to remember. A tempo run in a frying pan of heat and pain. Awful. I won't bore you with the gory details but... my breathing and everything was great but something else was a-brewin'. Sally dropped off the tempo, then Sarah, then I ended it in a bike shop bathroom with a toilet that wouldn't flush. Errr...I think the fastest I moved was ducking out of that situation. Sorry dudes.

Post workout I took a shower in the shoe closet at Super Jock n Jill (there's a bathroom back there). My life is glam. Then Owen and I took off for Whidbey Island for a couple days of eating, drinking and enjoying the last of summer with 20 friends.

The house we all rented was absurd. ABSURD. It was like a house that ate two other houses to make mega-beach-house. Dave, who booked the whole place for us, got food and liquor at cost so we had quite the spread. The first night there we all sat on the deck, just watching the salmon jump and the sun set over the mountains. Yes, that's a real sentence. It was amazing.

A couple friends are runners so I dragged them on my training runs, luckily it was an easy 3 and an easy 10. (Muhaha) I don't know how my short long run keeps landing where I need it but I'm happy! We ran out and back over Deception Pass. Felt great.

I don't typically take my camera on runs, but going across Deception Pass had to be an exception.
