I saw this on Laura’s blog and just had to play along:
Best race experience?
Every year I take part in the Monster Mortgage Toronto Challenge – it’s an informal 5k race and 1k family walk to raise money for organizations in Toronto that help Seniors. My dad, works for one of the organizations – his job is to drive Senior’s to their doctor appointments etc. This race is always a highlight for me because I run the 5k while my daughters do the 1k walk with my parents – I love that it’s a family affair. This year was particularly memorable because I also set a new PR and finished in broke the 25 min mark – my finishing time was: 24:51.
Worst race experience?
The Around The Bay 30K – I actually didn’t even make it to the start line due to a kidney infection.
Best new piece of gear?
I’ve gotten a lot of new gear this year, but by far the best freebie I got were these SHOES!!! I wore my last pair for 1200km’s and couldn’t afford new ones so it was really nice to be surprised by Sport Chek with these new Addidas shoes – They’re very light and comfy. Thanks Sport Chek!
Best piece of running advice you received?
Consistency is the key to success.
Unfortunately I didn’t follow it, and took the past few months off, so I’m basically starting over, yet again.
Most inspirational runner?
There are SO many!! Gosh, I don`t even know where to begin.
If you could sum up your year in a couple of words, what would they be?
Start. Stop. Start again.
Consistent training with my friend Emma, and then setting a half marathon PR (1:52) at the Chilly Half Marathon.
Missing the Around The Bay 30k due to a kidney infection and losing my running mojo somewhere in September.
Surprise of the year:
