Let us introduce ourselves. We are passionate runners of all abilities.
We want to support and encourage you in whatever your fitness or athletic goal..
Coach & Manager
I believe that there is no such thing a "just running a distance". Every running/walking goal is a worthy goal, whether if it is walking around block, a 5 km jog or a completing a marathon.
I am a bit of a movement, physiology and anatomy geek. I love to learn and I have or am working toward the following certifications:
Run, Jump Throw - Certified Instructor, NCCP
Sports Coach – In Training, NCCP
UESCA Certified Running Coach and Ultrarunning Coach
Of course, I enjoy sharing my knowledge and experience with others to help them on their fitness goals.
I grew up in Finch, ON and have lived in Russell, ON since 2002. Outside of the club, I work locally as Register Massage Therapist.
My Running Story
I love to run a lot and far. 100 milers is my jam. I have competed on many terrains - road, trails, mountains and even on a 400 m track.
With Covid putting a damper on racing in 2020, I discovered Fastest Known Times - unsupported is my favourite. There is nothing like donning a pair sneakers and carrying all your supplies for a nice long solo adventure.
One of my notable achievements was breaking the Canadian 100 mile record in 2017 (which I held for 4 years). I am proud of it not because of the title but because I achieved a goal that I never would have dreamed of when I started running way back in 1996. We all started at mile zero at some point.
