“My dad…passed away on May 30, 2015.”
“Determined, I signed up for the 2015 Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon a few weeks later with the motivation to cross it off my dad’s Bucket List, and my own….My training made me feel closer to my dad during an extremely difficult time and gifted me a small glimpse into his experience with running. Every time I would lace up for another training run, I wore my dad’s road ID badge to remind myself why I was doing this. It is difficult to put into words how thankful I am to my dad for helping me find a passion for running. He is, and always will be, my inspiration to “hit the bricks”.
