Fan Mail from Robin

We love getting Fan Mail! Robin kindly allowed us to share her inspiring story and feedback with our readers:


I’ve been wearing InknBurn for oh, a year and a half now and I have an ever growing collection. I love your unique designs and quality construction. A friend who lives in California introduced me to your clothing. I thought “hey, that would look great in race photos and make it easy to pick me out of a crowd when my family is trying to spot me from the sidelines”.

I feel like I run my best when I look my best. Last year, I ran Destination Races’ Oregon Wine Country Half Marathon wearing your singlet and skirt. I just got an email encouraging me to sign up for next year before the prices increase. (The race paid the photographers so they own all the images.) I was pretty surprised to see myself in the email image! I am pretty sure it wasn’t just my big smile that made the marketing department choose this photo — look how great your zen skirt and singlet look against the rolling hills of Oregon’s Wine Country! It was a really hot day and I was dumping water over my head at every water stop but I look as fresh as I did at the starting line thanks to the performance fabric.

Robin, in her classic INKnBURN Zen Singlet and Sports Skirt, was pleasantly surprised to see herself featured in a Destination Oregon race ad!

As someone who had asthma from infancy, was morbidly obese for 15 years, and has suffered from chronic daily migraine for the past 7 years, I never dreamed I would be used to “sell” race registrations. I probably should also have mentioned that a big part of my story is that I lost over 90 pounds and have kept it off for 3 years and 4 months to date. I have only been running for about 3.5 years! I did I did it with counting calories, first walking then running, and kettlebell training. I have fibromyalgia and chronic daily migraines but a daily dose of endorphins keeps me smiling.

So thanks, InknBurn, for making me look good!!
