As quoted by Erica Anderson, Global Marketing Manager, Oakley (and OC Half Marathon finisher/team motivator):
"You would think rallying a bunch of people to get up at 4am the day after Cinco de Mayo to run 13.1 miles would be nearly impossible - but when it comes to Oakley Women, nothing is! We had about 40 to 50 Oakley Women and even some Oakley men out there charging the local course of the OC Marathon, and taking in the encouragement from our Oakley Water station at Mile 10. In terms of participants from the company, we had women from apparel design, strategy, marketing, sales, product design, sports marketing - you name it…and we all donned our neon yellow tanks that said it all; "ALMOST AN UNFAIR ADVANTAGE". So proud of everyone, especially those that it was their first half ever, it was an inspiring day for all and a great day to be an Oakley Woman."
Maybe this is the encouragement some of you out there have been looking for to get you thinking about a half yourself? Please share if there is a race locally in your area and we can add it to the events page so that other women within the PBC community can consider joining you!
