  • Back to fence hopping, narrow lanes, and no bathrooms. BUT at least the fence is low enough to hop, the lanes are still a good surface and there’s a building you can pee behind 🤷‍♀️

  • This is running in hella hot conditions 🥵 When this happens we keep the runs short, low key, and sometimes double up on them. Best to run early AM (I obviously didn’t... ‘cuz toddlers and coffee), and later in the PM. We’re not foreign to heat waves but they can be dangerous for training. Lots and lots of fluids to stay hydrated is key.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And if you’ve got it, jump in the water to cool off! When I’m in the city and have no pools or lakes, I lay on my basement floor 😅

  • Because damn that was a solid workout. So much quality. Legs ache. Feet on fire. But I feel strong. So much of this base training is paying off, I wish we were able to show you in races. 
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Time trials are the new races for now, maybe we’ll show you those, you think?

  • We may be living our best lives at the lake right now, but this grind doesn’t stop. 
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Track access with COVID-19 has been sparse and slightly illegal; but, I’ve found myself a slick new facility and it’s proving to be fast. I have no idea when or if I will be able to race this season so time trials are becoming the new race.

  • To think one day that this sweet baby girl may be bullied because of the colour of her skin or the way her hair looks. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Or to think that her dad, my husband, who is the gentlest, kindest, and most loving person, who is black, could be KILLED on a run because of the colour of his skin. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Both of these scenarios are a nightmare to me as a white woman, with white privilege. But this is REAL LIFE for black people and POC. Why does the colour of ones skin dictate how they get treated? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It’s time for change. My daughter, my husband, my extended family, my best friends boys, my friends, coaches, teammates, classmates, and any POC I have the privilege of knowing. You deserve what I deserve. You deserve to be treated fairly based on WHO you are, not on the colour of your skin. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
BLACK LIVES MATTER. I stand with you. I stand beside you. I am here for you. I will keep fighting for you.

  • Makin’ it work. This time of COVID is forcing us to have new routines, new normals and new workouts. And that looks different across our entire country, every province is different. We still can’t be in our training groups safely. Just doing what I can to stay fit. I’ll be ready when it’s time.

  • Rookie mistake. Ponytail in the rain.  I’ll be deep conditioning this mane, as soon as I wake up from my nap. This prep phase (again) has me worn out! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
On the plus side, at least one of us was prepared for the rain, puddle jumping and all. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

  • Trunk space in our @toyotacanada Highlander is the ideal spot for people watching, snack breaks, and rest breaks. I run, Corinne holds down the fort and talks to all the ‘neighbours’ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
