Meet The Team 1
Prelims of the 1500 at 2010 NCAA Championships at Hayward Field

Jason (Co-founder)

I was a former 800m/1500m runner at Oakland University in Rochester, MI (not California!)

The highlight of my running career was definitely when I qualified for  the NCAA Championships in 2010 and ran at the storied Hayward field. It was truly a dream to be able to run my last collegiate race at Hayward and it was the experience of a lifetime for me.

After college, I ran post collegiately for a short period under Tim Broe and Ron Warhurst in Ann Arbor, MI before ultimately ‘retiring’. I got my butt kicked but it was a great experience and I wouldn’t trade it for anything.

As a runner, I always hated how there weren’t many options out there for running singlets to wear if you aren’t on a team… and that is how Redshirt Running was created! It started as an idea while I was still training and has formed into what it is today so I hope you enjoy what we are trying to do! If you’d like to contact me about singlets, training, or anything related to running you can send me an email at [email protected] or through the contact page.

 

Swimming
200 Breaststroke at 2011 Conference Championships

Jill (Co-Founder)

I’m not the runner in this team. I began competitive swimming at 5-years-old and swam through college at Oakland University (Go Grizzlies!). Shortly after retiring from swimming I took up running (hey, it’s the biggest bang for your buck calorie wise). After I got over the initial “Ugh, I hate this I can’t run more than a minute” feeling, I actually started enjoying it!

Meet The Team 2
2014 Grandma’s Marathon- Reppin’ the Run Forrest Run Singlet

 

Within a year I ran my first marathon up in Traverse City, MI.  I  completed Bayshore in  3:49:32. After this I decided I wanted to qualify  for Boston. I  decided to  wait another year  and get some more miles under my belt before I ran my  next marathon. In June  2014 I went  to Duluth,  MN to run Grandma’s Marathon and  finished in 3:31:32 (BQ! WOOP  WOOP!)  Now I’ve run Boston 2015 (3:29:12) and I’m looking forward to the future!

As a swimmer there are a lot of options for different swimsuit designs. When Jason came  up  with  the idea to do this for running singlets I thought it was awesome! Thanks for coming to our Meet the Team page and contact me at  [email protected] with questions about running, swimming, custom orders,  anything!
