Past Board Role(s):
How Long Have You Been With PRC?
Joined PRC in April 2021 as part of the LTR Program
What Made You Start Running?
During the pandemic I was spending a lot of time playing with my son and I noticed that my fitness was not close to the level I once was and I wanted to make a change. In my past I had experience running but not successfully. Then after driving by Paradise Plaza one Saturday morning and seeing members of PRC getting ready for a run, I checked out the website and joined LTR the next month.
What is your best/worst run?
My best run was the Toronto Waterfront Marathon in October 2022. After months and months of training I was ready to have a great day. I went in with a goal time and crushed that target with a favorable course. There happens to be less hills in downtown Toronto than our normal running areas!
My worst run was the 2015 Tely 10. Back then I decided to try the Tely but did zero training and I mean zero. I was on the bus headed to the start line and had the worst feeling in my stomach because I was not prepared. I barely made it through and could hardly walk for a week after I was so sore. After vowing to myself to never do that again, I proceeded to do it again with zero training the next year with the same result. I do not recommend trying that method.
Favorite running shoe?
I have primarily worn Asics Nimbus since I started but lately, I have branched out and I have Saucony, Hoka along with Asics in my closet.
How do you track your runs?
Currently I use a Fenix 6 Pro
Do you have a current running goal?
I do not have a specific goal but my focus is on continued development as a runner.
Best training tip you can provide/received?
The best tip/quote I ever heard or read is “I never regret it when I do a run, but I always regret it when I don’t.”
