2018 Will be my 20th year as a runner. The Vancouver BMO in 2003 was my 1st 1/2 marathon and it took me well over 2 hours! This year as I train & lead a new 1/2 marathon group at Kintec North Vancouver, I'll be aiming for a sub 1:49 at the age of 58.
Over the past 12 years, I've volunteered much of my time as a pace -group leader for runners training for the 1/2 marathon & full marathon distances. It is SO rewarding to encourage others through the long winter runs to keep going when they want to quit...knowing come race day - they will be fit, prepared & ready to race at their best.
When choosing the Mom2Mom Child Poverty Initiative Society, as my fundraising charity for the BMO 1/2 marathon this year, it saddened me to think of all the single mom's in our community who struggle on a daily basis to provide for their children.
Through compassionate and respectful mentoring, M2M volunteers help & support mothers to parent their children and provide them with the tools they need to be successful.
In addition to fundraising for the Mom2Mom charity, I have volunteered my time to assist the Mom2Mom running team with training tips & motivation to get them to the start line and beyond.
Pay it forward!
