Congrats and thank you to the NRR crew who participated in our Choose Your Own Adventure Virtual Race today, 6.71km loops every hour on the hour for as long as you can! It was a super hot day and we still had some incredible new distance PBs. There was one epic fall, a stolen shirt, hundreds of dollars in gels and nuun according to Kelly and two of our athletes are still out there running! 😯 Great to connect with our long-lost friends in PEI too. 💪❤️💦💯 Amazing job everyone!!! ...

Big congrats to @tasteofjulia who ran a solo virtual marathon today in an impressive 3:44! Julia is a dietitian for Zehrs and has kept up her training even while working full time in stressful conditions through this pandemic. Thanks for all you do to keep us healthy and informed! 🙌🏃‍♀️

Ran my first solo marathon today!

I haven’t done any speed work since the pandemic started because I was so stressed and I didn’t want to push myself too hard. I took it relatively easy, but was very happy with my effort and that I was able to complete the distance! 🏃🏻‍♀️ Super grateful to my husband who drove his car around to give me water or Gatorade every 3-4 km.

I feel so blessed that I’ve been healthy and able to run over the last 2 months. I truly believe that running improves my mental health and it always puts me in a better mood.

I can’t wait until I can do group runs with @newmarketroadrunners again! Special thank you to @marleneruns who dropped off my NRR singlet and a sweet note last week ❤️ I was planning to wear it for my race, but this past week has been so cold that I didn’t test it out and I never wear anything new on race day!

Today I am thankful for running, the best team and coaches ever, and the most perfect morning for a marathon.
