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.
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!!
