Last year, when I started working at OESH, I sent my mom a pair of La Vidas from our first production run. She had always been an avid runner but a couple years ago she started getting bad knee pains which prevented her from running as much as she liked. I sent her that first pair hoping they would help her knee pain and in fact, not long after, she was out running again. She was back to running about 3 miles a few times a week and ever since has been doing any 5K she can find with her new running shoes. Her goal is to complete at least one 5K a month. This brings us to a couple weekends ago when I had gone back to the Eastern Shore of Maryland to visit my parents. My mom was running in the Chester River Crab Chase 5K in Chestertown, MD the following morning so I decided to join her. We got up early, put on our OESH La Vida 2.0 (I wore rococco, she wore her fiji) and headed out to the race. She received first place in her age group as I received second place in mine. This is not the first time she has won first place in her age group as she is always sending us pictures of her first place winnings. It is great to see her back in the running game and healthy as ever! Way to go Mom!
