This is the second in a series of posts about companies with whom Im entirely smitten.
If by series you mean I shall post em when the spirit and customer service moves me—which I do.
This post is one which is truly close to my heart.
Ive been blogging at MizFit for almost three and a half years and these days it’s fairly easy to get a PR rep or company to respond to my emails.
They may not necessarily be willing or able to do what I ask—but gone are the days when I know chances of a response are minuscule.
This company I love post goes out to a brand who loved me when I was a newbie-MizFit.
Who showed US the love even when the MizFit brand was wholly unknown.
I initially met Sally when I reached out to her and asked about doing a product review.
She “got” blogging
Sally saw value my sharing my Oiselle-experiences with you and, practically after I hit send, a pair of running shorts showed up at my door.
I loved em.
I shared that Id have loved them more had they possessed a draw string.
Sally lovingly informed me (& still teases me) that were I to actually wear shorts a size that fit this wouldn’t be a problem.
(Im renown for loving my shorts uber-baggy. A post-topic for a different day)
It was weeks later that I received an email from Sally saying she had an idea she wanted to run past me.
The words GIVE AWAY and OPRAH were bandied about by way of a teaser & I couldn’t thumb-type back quickly enough to find out her plan.
Sally, in her truly inimitable generous way, had decided she wanted to do a give away at MizFit where everyone was a winner.
She wanted to bestow upon every commenter a brand!spanking!new!sportsbra.
No catches. No with purchase. And NO SHIPPING fees either.
The proverbial string attached? Sally wanted to listen to us (I know. That’s like the catch being more free sh*t huh?).
She wanted to know what we loved about brands, what we didnt love, what workout garment we would design if we could create ANYTHING.
The good, the bad, & the creative dreamers—she wanted it all.
And, hundreds of sports bras later, she had it.
Not only did she mail out her treats in a quickasaflash fashion—she took the time to thank us afterward.
Oiselle Running is more than an example of a class act & a brand who produces quality apparel.
Sally loved us back at a time when MizFit was too (finger quote) small (unFQ) to even be on the radar of many other companies.
We appreciate, recognize & patronize them for it Yes. Im totally pretending I speak for all of us. The Royal We.
So there you have it.
My Ode of Love (blah blah blah clarifying again this is an unpaid missive of adoration) & official bestowing of the MizFit Seal of Approval:
This misfit thinks you rock.
