It's been a whirlwind, stressful week around here. But today, my professional race pics arrived in my inbox from the Army Run. I may not look perfect. I may not have a 'Runner's body' (whatever THAT means), but I look so happy. I have legs, a heart, and lungs strong enough to carry me over distances. I have a mind that gives me drive and determination to reach my goals, even when it's boiling hot, my muscles are aching, and I know that snow white belly is going to be sun burnt red at the end. That's why I'm sharing a pic in which I know I don't look perfect. Because I look happy. #happy#runner#runnergirl#armyrun#halfmarathon#plus5km#commanderschallenge#healthy#perfectlyimperfect#nofilterneeded
I love love love this picture. The sheer joy of completing something you didn't think you could. Not only completing it, but getting a PB on my 5k in the first part of the challenge. Thank you, Canada Army Run, for pushing me further every time. #vimychallenge#running#strongAF#armyrun
#TBT Are we stick of @canadaarmyrun photos yet? I ran into @runrun_yoga_run about 500m into the race and was so happy for the company on this hot day! I've actually been lucky enough to run this race we a few friends over the years (usually by accident!) And they have been some of my fondest race memories.
Two thumbs for the results at the Army Run last Sunday, a new PB in the half marathon and finally beating the 90 minute barrier. The fist pump at the line came from seeing the clock above the finish still below 1:30
Thanks to the men and women of the Canadian military, past and present, who stand ready to serve our country and the international community, the volunteers to kept me hydrated, and to the thousands of people who came out to cheer
