MEET OUR MODERATORS:

Kara Goucher is a 2-time Olympian, award-winning author, NBC Analyst, co-host of the Nobody Asked Us podcast, and Oiselle athlete-advisor. Kara first began the Fast Girl Fridays series on her instagram to bring attention to the accomplishments and experiences of high school girls in running. We’re excited to bring the Oregon edition to you live!

In her words: “I saw that high school boys were reported on more than high school girls were in the running space. There are so many amazing stories and athletes, and I felt like they deserved to be highlighted. I want to talk to the fastest girls in the nation, and I also want to talk to girls that have started running for the first time. The whole goal is just to show other girls that we see them, and maybe they can help inspire each other to go out for the cross country team or go for that big goal they have in the back of their mind. I want them to see what’s possible – by seeing each other celebrated!

Kendra Coleman is a professional track and field athlete sponsored by Oiselle. She is currently focused on the Olympic Track & Field Trials in Eugene, where she will compete in the 800.
