That’s it, folks!

I can’t believe we’re done. It’s been a couple weeks since race day and I still can’t believe we’re done. I’m so proud of myself and my team mates for everything we’ve accomplished – at our graduation celebration the other night, co-founder Rod McCulloch said :

And now, you’ve all had it, you’re Olympic moment. Whether that’s walking your first 5k, or running your first 10k, you’ve had your Olympic moment…

And Rod was right, it was OUR Olympic moment. It felt AMAZING to finish that race, to know that I can run 10k. And it felt a little sad, because I knew that meant training was over. But it’s not over – not by a long shot! Most of us are still training together – we’re running Saturdays (join us at Fitness Week Bootcamp at Alderney Landing on Saturday at 9 a.m.!!) and doing hills on Tuesdays (UGH!) but we’re not done. We’ve started this lifelong journey, and we’re going to stick with it. I’m so thrilled to have been part of Team Myles 2014, and so thankful to have that amazing Blue Nose experience. It was truly something I will always be thankful for and I will never, ever forget.

Remember:

Anyone can do this. Anyone. If you want to, if you have the tenacity, perseverance, and drive – you can do it. If you want it hard enough, and you work long enough, you can do it. 5k, 10k, half marathon – whatever you want to do, if you train for it, work for it, push for it, and want to do it, you can. I’m living, breathing proof of that – I signed up to walk 5k and now I can RUN 10k. It’s not impossible, it’s not out of reach, it’s doable. So, why are you still sitting here? Go do it!!!

    I’m still in shock 4 weeks later…I almost failed in the attempt of my first 10 K (somehow I managed). Thank you to the crowds of people around the finish line.
    Brunswick St. LOVE is my new nick name for that crowd!
    Every time I saw a Team Myles member I was reminded how it’s such a privilege to be able to be in this race, not only was this race for me it was for Ronald McDonald House Atlantic Canada, The kids and families we help are such a resilient group and why not help them stay together in times of need, like our motto says “helping give sick children what they need most…their families”.

    I felt overwhelmed, yeti felt apart of something bigger than I thought I would EVER take part in. I was saying the same thing on my way home from Bluenose 2014 about this being my Olympic moment (looking at my finished’r medal saying this is my GOLD). Wise Words Mr. McCulloch, WISE WORDS!

    Thank you Paige for letting me (and everyone who was following the team) share in your journey. Who knew 6 weeks before Bluenose you’d be taking part in your first 5 K run & 6 weeks later you’d be killing the hills of Halifax/Dartmouth in your first 10 K ! I’m honored and very proud of the entire team, yet your story just resonated with me. Thank you for the wonderful ride through your blogs.

    I WILL BE BACK to see another Bluenose marathon weekend, I’m hooked!
