For those of you who may not have been lucky enough to have crossed paths with SOAS, here is your chance to get to know them. SOAS is a women specific endurance clothing line, started and based in San Diego, California. To this day, eighty percent of their gear is sewn by the Company, at that location. Owner and designer is Stephanie Swanson, who I have been fortunate enough to spend some time with, on a personal level, and I am here to tell you, Steph is as fantastic person as she is a designer! SOAS’s mission statement is as neat as their clothing. It is to simply bring the women of endurance sports a means of feeling strong without giving up feeling feminine. I truly believe SOAS is meeting their mission!
It was the summer of 2013, the summer I turned Pro. I was in search of a cool and stylish, yet functional, tri kit, and in that search, I found SOAS. I purchased an amazingly beautiful (and durable!) kit, and the rest is history. That fall, I applied to the SOAS 2014 Ambassador Racing Team, and was fortunate enough to be selected. I was thrilled and jacked to be part of a Team full of inspirational and athletic women. The Team consisted of (and still consists of) a group of awesome women from all over the world, of different ages and abilities, who are perfect examples of the SOAS Mission. I found it to be a fun, energetic and supportive group. After a successful 2014 racing season, and some discussions with Steph, I am excited and proud to say that I am now part of the SOAS Elite Racing Team! Check out my tri kit designed by owner Stephanie that I will be racing in this coming season. It is beyond amazing, unique and it perfectly fits everything I would want in a tri kit!! A big thanks to Steph and everyone at SOAS.

I am also very thankful for the continued support of Mountain West Track Club, we’ve been together for many years. Thanks to Hellgate Cycle, I absolutely couldn’t do it without your help and expertise. Thanks also to Osmo for the nutrition products and to Rudy Project for the equipment. Of course, a thank you to coach Elliot who keeps me healthy and strong. And, of course, a special and big thank you to my husband and kids for all their support and encouragement. I truly couldn’t do it without you!
I am super excited to not only race hard and fast, but to do just that with all of my amazing sponsors’ logos on my new SOAS designed race kit!
Cheers to the 2015 racing season! It’s going to be a fun one.
