So why did I choose to run @RBCRun4theKids 15k?

Continuing on my running journey I have chosen to run the RBC Run for the Kids 15km distance.  I chose this race and distance for a few resons.  First I felt 15km was the perfect distance for me having just started running at the beginning of this year.  Second the money rasied from this race benfits the Family Navigation Project at Sunnybrook Hopsital.  As a Paramedic I too often see the impact of mental health issues on youth.  I hear many stories from them and their families of the difficulties of tying to find their way through the health care system.  They frequently become frustrated and lose thier drive to get better due to a lack of education in a very confusing system.  They often simply just dont know where to start!  Cue the Family Navigation project at Sunnybrook Health Sciences center.

This program fills a very large gap in the mental health care system!   However it cannot function without donations from wonderful people like you!  Last year the RBC Run for the Kids  raised $1.2 million to help young people get back on track to a brighter future.

So how can you help?

You can sponsor a runner or family/group.

Even better I be really really happy if you would sponsor me!

Come out to the event and cheer me and the other runners on!  They have a great kids zone planned

RUN with me 😀 in the 15km run, or the 5km run/walk/stroll or the 25km run.  If you’re new to running I will always offer advice from my experience as well as lots and lots of encouragement!  If you would like some training plans and tips check this out as well

Thanks for reading and I hope to meet you on September 20th Mel Lastman Square!

Day one of @feverdancechamps #fevermarkham2018 so proud of this girl! #prouddad #prouddaddy #dadblogger #dancedad #dancecompetition #dance #booyabdc
Happy I got the chance to watch the little man wrestle today!
We never realized how hard this tragedy would hit us. 😭. Can’t imagine what these families are going though. #PutYourSticksOut #HumboldtStrong
Papa was always so proud of Noah in everything he did especially his hockey. He always wanted to be there for his games and practices; you could always see the pride in his eyes and they way he spoke about how he was progressing. We lost papa last summer to cancer and it made Noah’s first season as a select player difficult because he wasn’t with us to experience this incredible season and Noah’s exponential increase in skills. Noah is raising money for the pedal for hope campaign in honour of his papa by shaving his head at his school. Please consider a donation ,no amount is too small, and help him reach his goal. You can also help by sharing this post with your friends. Thanks for reading 🙂 The link is in my profile
This weekend was busy AF but for these two it was all worth it! ❤️

I recommend them for everyone who runs or is in their feet for extended periods to relieve & prevent back and foot pain. The sale is on till Monday at midnight so you have time to decide and ask me questions :)
Beautiful weather yesterday but loved getting out with my #SoleMate. Was a little cool so I wore my @enertorglobal base layer under my technical shirt and it worked perfectly! Wasn’t too hot and wasn’t too cold! Love this company! I also use their insoles for running and while I’m at work! If you want a discount you can find it in my profile:). Happy running everyone! # #Repost @karenvanmil with @get_repost ・・・ Had a little RUNdezvous with my sole mate @paramedic_mike during my lunch break! ❤️Made the day brighter and I’m not tired anymore! #runch #teamawesome2018 #runottawa2018 #ottawamarathon #bettertogether #betterthancoffee
Just tried out the new @underarmourca #UAHOVR #uahovrphantom shoes! These shoes have the same great heal cusion/bounce as the #uahovrsonic that I love. I also like that there is no tongue to pull up on these and you just slide you foot right in! The colour is super hot and bright however they will get dirty fast so be aware if you don’t like your shoe getting dirty. But, if you don’t like getting your shoes dirty then why are you running outside? Lol. I did find my heals slid a bit in the shoe but if you have great socks like I do then you shouldn’t have a problem. One other thing I noticed about this shoe is that the toe box is not very roomy so if you have insoles that you like to run in or your Fort requires extra room then you will find your toes hitting the top of the shoes. I ended up with a sore big toe on my nail after this run. I’ll have to use less of an insole or none at all when I use this shoe again. The shoe had great give and elasticity around the whole shoe so it really fit nicely around the top of my foot. I found there was good ankle support and didn’t notice any rolling when I transitioned to the uneven grass from the sidewalks and roadways. Overall another great shoe from #UnderArmor and I would highly recommend it when picking new shoes. As always when I talk to people about shoes please try on as many as possible to find the pair that best suits your foot shape, your gait and support that you require. Thank you @underarmourca and @paradigm_pr for giving me these shoes to try out and share with you guys! #CanadaWILL @enertorglobal @teamtiux
That looks much better! Thanks @lamarcahairsalon ! #haricut #barber #cleanedup
