Learning first aid an empowering experience

Bystander CPR is key to Cardiac Arrest survival. All of the people that I know of that have survived a cardiac arrest (their heart stops) have had some element of bystander CPR before the paramedics arrived with advanced life support. I encourage all of you reading this to learn CPR. You could save a loved one or friend or a loved one or friend of someone else! Even “Hands only CPR” has been proven to help in survival rates! There are lots of places to learn and your local Red Cross is a great place to start!

I recently had to update my CPR/AED skills to include infants, as I was teaching mom and baby Pilates classes. I thought it would also be a good time to get my Standard First Aid, something I had been thinking about. I got in touch with my friends at the Red Cross and signed up through them for a two day CPR/AED and Standard First Aid course.

There’s always a small amount of fear when I sign up for courses like this. The reality is that you’re learning skills that could potentially save someone’s life. That’s a lot of responsibility and not to be taken lightly.

Jut tried out @canadianrunning pick for best urban shoe for 2017 from @underarmourca!  These are UA Charged Reactor  model.  I don’t think I have any complaints or issues with these shoes!  My feet were always the right temperature, when ever I stepped into a puddle I never go a soaker and I never felt any slipping on the changing ice, water, snow and dry concrete surfaces of the sidewalks. They tied up well around my ankle and my foot never slipped around inside. They also fit very well with my insoles which is a huge plus!  I highly recommend you try these out for yourself this winter! #CanadaWill #UARun .
