Throwback Thursday

Throwback Thursday

I started running in middle school. If I remember correctly, my 400m time was somewhere around 80 seconds and my 800m time was over three minutes. My sport had always been swimming and the transition to running wasn’t pretty. Nevertheless, I stuck with it (mostly because I wasn’t good at any other sports). I got much better my junior year of high school and continued to progress throughout my senior year. The more significant thing, looking back now, is that I was hooked. What started with local 5ks (the Coyote 5k and Twilight Run were my favorites), turned into 10ks, then 10 milers, then half marathons, then marathons, then a 50k… and now, who knows what is next?! There have been bumps in the road – injuries, burnout, plateaus – but I’m glad I’ve stuck with it.

  1. Oh wow! That’s what I call dedication! I started running just last summer and I am already hooked. Hopefully, one day I will be able to run a marathon!

      You should do a marathon! I’ve never done the one in Montreal but I’ve heard it’s pretty nice – I’ve run Ottawa and it’s fantastic!

      • I’m planning on doing a half this year, so I’ll let you know lol. I am also trying for the Spartan trifecta, 2 of the races will be in Ottawa and 1 in Montremblant about an hour and half away from Mtl. I’m super excited to take the scenary in while wiping all that mud off my face haha 🙂

  2. Oh my stars.
