This weekend is the Bluenose

This Sunday is the Bluenose 10 KM Race that I and my fellow Team Myles 10 KM team have been training for. The 10-week program has not been easy. It not only challenged my physical strength but also my mental strength. I feel like I have been spending so much time away from my family. My 5-year-old daughter is already dealing with the transition of having a new baby sister and has also had to deal with me having my own time away from her two more times a week. I’m grateful for this program and everything it has given to me and I’m looking forward to spending more time with my family again. I’ll be bringing Anna with me for more runs now too.
When I started the program I was scared. After my surgery, I was really unsure of how far I would be able to run and how far. Now that I’m at the end of the program, my concerns seem so silly. Like anything in life, it’s about taking steps towards your goal. Even large, daunting goals can be accomplished with enough time and perseverance.
I hope more people apply for Team Myles next year. This program is incredible. There are so many people going through the same struggles as I was. Running is not easy most days. When I get out for a run, I usually don’t want to do it and then, somehow, by the end I am pumped and glad I went. My team helped me see that you can go at your own pace, always.
