How Long Have You Been With PRC?

Since September 2013

What Made You Start Running?

I was involved in rowing and we ran for cross training. I decided I needed a change so I decided I’d take a year off rowing and run the Tely10. I’ve been hooked ever since.

What is your best/worst run?

Tough question. For best run it might be a tie between Cape to Cabot 2014 and the Provincial 5K in 2015.

Cape to Cabot 2014 was my first C2C, when I finished it, there was such an amazing feeling of accomplishment. The fact that we ran it in a hurricane, just made the feeling so much better.

Provincial 5K 2015, was the time I finally broke 30 minutes on a 5k. A goal I was trying to reach since I joined the club. It felt good to finally break it after coming close so many times!

My worst run was the Huffin Puffin 2015. I started off too fast, and didn’t listen to my body before or during the run. I learned some valuable lessons that day.

Favorite running shoe?

My primary running shoe has always been the Asics GT2000s. I purchased other shoes, and I always go back to them.

How do you track your runs?

Garmin Connect and Strava. I’m currently using the Forerunner 245

Do you have a current running goal?

I’m looking forward to races happening again so I can see where I am and then I will formulate a goal. Right now I just want to race.

Best training tip you can provide/received?

Lower your arms when going uphill
