My Story…

I can honestly say that I NEVER thought I would sign up for a half marathon. The idea of running that far terrifies me!So why am I doing it? 1.After a recent health scare with the old ticker <3 I was given the all clear. What better way to celebrate than by pushing it to its limits right?! After a long road of recovery from a car accident,multiple physical,mental injuries & trauma followed by this recent heart scare, I’m feeling grateful for the body & health that I have. 2. Running the Half allows me to raise funds for the Alzheimer Society of B.C. Do you know somebody impacted by dementia? Sadly, it is highly likely that we all do. I’m running for my grandma and for all those impacted by Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia. Your donations go directly towards helping those families and funding vital research. 3. I haven’t done anything that truly terrifies me in a long time-this is it! Your support means so much & will help me on those dreaded training runs!
