finish line In 2010 I took up running to relieve my anxiety and help me lose weight. My first run was exactly 60 seconds in length and today I am proud to say I have run every distance from 5K to the marathon.

Running has changed my life in more ways than I can count. It has helped me stay fit, sane, and happy, and it has introduced me to people and opportunities I never dreamed of having!

None of this would be possible without my amazing sister Adriana who has been my running buddy since day 1. We have run 8ks together and half-marathons together and there is no one I’d rather have by my side on race day.

I also wouldn’t be where I am today without my awesome run crew, Tribe Fitness! If you’re in Toronto and looking for a fun and welcoming group to run with, come out and “Join the Tribe” for a run. I promise you won’t regret it!

When talking to non-runners, I often hear “Oh, I could never be a runner.” My automatic response is always “Oh, yes you can.” If I could become a runner, anyone can. You don’t need to have an athletic body or a history of participating in sports to be a great runner. Most of what you need comes from inside: a strong will, a dedicated mind, perseverance when training gets tough, and most importantly, the power to believe in yourself.

Thanks for visiting, I hope you enjoy reading my blog and HAPPY RUNNING!
