I'm running 100km (again), to end kids' cancer!

Last year I was introduced to a world changing group of people, who go by GoodGuysTri. They had this crazy idea to run 100km, from Ottawa to Montebello, as part of the Sears Great Canadian Run. We were a team of 23 solo runners, who would all complete the 100km course in one day, and raise money for CHEO. It was an incredible summer of fundraising and training, which ended with one of the most powerful days of my life, and $100,000 raised to help end kids' cancer.

We're doing it again, and even bigger this year. GoodGuysTri is going to 3 cities across Canada: Ottawa, Toronto and Calgary. Running 100km in each city, and raising funds for the Sears Foundation, which supports cancer research and support in each city's children's hospital.

On September 20th, 2014 I'll be running 100km from Toronto to Blue Mountain, raising funds for SickKids Toronto. It's not going to be easy, but it's nothing compared to the pain these kids and their families go through when battling cancer. Let's help end kids' cancer together. Please donate, and help me spread the message.

Thank you very much for your support.

Episode 39: Lanni Marchant

I had the pleasure of braving a snow storm for 10k with Canadian marathon and half-marathon record holder, Lanni Marchant this week! We chat about her training, spending time in Kenya and the shock of becoming an overnight running superstar. Enjoy!

Episode 38: Alcoholism and Running with Christa Davidson

Christa Davidson was kind enough to join me for a run around Newmarket, ON. She tells her story of alcoholism and how running helped her down the road of recovery. If you, or someone you know is struggling with addiction, please reach out to Canada's Drug & Alcohol Helpline.
