The ever-inspiring Miss Zippy has encouraged us all the answer the following questions as a ‘year in review’ of sorts.
- Best race experience? Mississauga Marathon in May – my first BQ and the best race I’ve ever run – and best of all I got to share it all with hubs who also secured his first BQ that day.
Best run? Our annual Santa run last weekend – as uncomfortable as it may have been, I have never smiled so much on a long run in my life.
Best piece of running advice you received? “You didn’t come this far to give it up now.” – These are words of encouragement rather than advice, but this is what Coach said to me as I struggled to make my goal on the home stretch of my most recent marathon. It was exactly what I needed to hear and I will bring these words with me to many races in the future.
- Most inspirational runner? My husband – the best and most dedicated runner I know. His passion for the sport is infectious and he has made me a better and more dedicated runner than I ever would have imagined.
