  • What is your favorite distance to run? Why? *
Mine is the half marathon, although I recognize that in order to run a good half marathon I have to become good at the 5k, 8k and 10k as well as the marathon. Therefore, I end up running a lot of different distances and races throughout the year. *

  • 38. “Turn your wounds into wisdom.”
― Oprah Winfrey.  So this week didn’t go as planned but such is life.  Next week is when my real training is to begin, but my mileage has been nil this week due to a cold/flu.  Running teaches you many important lessons, but the biggest one is resilience.  Be it injury, illness or a bad race, things don’t always go as planned.  It’s not how hard we fall, but how we react.  I’m using this time to prepare the mind for the work ahead.  Cabot trail relay here we come!  We’re in!

  • This month marks Sarah Laberge’s third official runniversary. Although her foundation in running was laid in high school, Sarah tore her ACL in first year university and was forced to take a break from a very active lifestyle. Prior to her injury, Sarah was a part of her high school cross country team and a competitive soccer player throughout her teenage years. Her team’s soccer coach knew the importance of running and added an additional 16 km of running to the team’s weekly training cycle. Fortunately for Sarah, running was a strength, and she loved the sport more and more. In January of 2017, Sarah decided that it was time to get back to her roots and signed up for her first half-marathon. After that first race, Sarah was hooked! She ramped up her racing and running became a regular part of her life.
.
In March 2018, Sarah moved to Toronto and wanted to meet other runners. She feels so fortunate to have met a great group of other runners through Toronto’s fantastic running community, and she loves the collaborations that different run crews work on together. After running her first Around the Bay 30k that year, Sarah ran her debut marathon at STWM in September, finishing in an incredible 3:38! Since then, she has run her second marathon in Berlin, setting an 11 minute PB and qualifying for Boston!
.
Looking ahead to her next year of running, Sarah is excited to be racing the 2x15 km relay at this year’s ATB, a half-marathon in the spring, and her third marathon in Chicago this October! Despite her variety of races, however, one race will always hold a special place for Sarah; in 2017, Sarah ran the Banff-Jasper Relay with her dad, uncle, and twelve other runners, all in support of her mom. The race is in support of the Brain Tumour Foundations of Canada, and Sarah herself is a paediatric brain tumour survivor. While her team’s third place was a huge perk and running the last leg of the relay into Jasper was unforgettable, what that race meant for her family will always be the highlight.

  • “Fall Down 7 Times Get Up 8” - Japanese Proverb
.
I don’t typically quote proverbs, but I thought this one was fitting considering last night I reinjured my hip. Before I explain what happened, I want to share how great I’ve felt the past week or two. I felt like I was building momentum and getting my strength back! I ran two tough workouts last week and my hip felt amazing!
.
Last night I met up with my @unleashedrunning teammates for a secret workout. The idea of the workout was to prove we can do hard things. If any of us knew the workout in the days or hours leading up to the start, we would have spent all that time convincing ourselves we wouldn’t be able to do it.
.
The first interval was 1-mile and it was the fastest mile I ever ran! At this point, my hip started to feel a bit sore, but nothing to worry about. The second interval was 800 meters and the soreness came on a bit stronger. The third interval was also 800 meters, and I had to cut it short. By then, my hip was throbbing.
.
Perhaps I pushed myself a too much last night. My fault for not stopping after the second interval. Right now, my focus is finishing a marathon in 6 1/2 weeks. It may be my slowest marathon ever and, at the same time, likely be the most memorable. I may have fallen down a few times this training cycle, but I’ll get back up in time for Tokyo!

  • 3 reasons to take the workout to the good old 'mill.
➡perceived exertion. I find it so much more mentally challenging, no matter what I'm listening to or watching. ➡I hate being hot. I struggle huge in heat.  Even in a sports bra + long tights, I sweat like a 🐖 and hope this helps me not be such a whiny baby when warm weather returns ➡it is much safer than constantly watching my footing during a tempo, and less annoying than constant stops to walk over large icy patches on my favourite pathways. 
And there you have it. Eliminate your struggles so you don't have to battle them race day✨

#bandera100km 
Made a spontaneous decision to throw this race into my schedule in hopes of landing a WSER Golden Ticket. It was a lofty goal given the competition this race draws but sometimes you just have to take a chance.  Happy to say...I got what what I came for ☺️. This ticket comes with mixed emotions! I am thrilled that I have the ability to run at this level. I’m excited to have another shot at WSER now that I know the course. I am also scared to death because I’m doing the race again...and I know what I’m in for 🤣. Huge thanks to my sister for traveling all the way from TO to crew me today. Her first time crewing and she did a phenomenal job! Couldn’t have done it without her support. 
I know my other crew members wished they could be here but sometimes it just doesn’t work out. I know they were here in heart and glued to the tracker all day.  @b_mangreen Dave and Leslie Roche. Can’t wait to have you guys with me at WSER!! #seeyouinsquaw #wser #canadianultrarunner #canadianrunningmagazine #canadianrunning #sauconyrunning #sauconycanada #runyourworld #fasttraxrunski #runhappy #neurofeedback @sanostatehealthclinic

  • 🇨🇭chocolate and cheese and croissants and those mountains 🏔👌🏼
SO HAPPY I was able to see the Alps out here in Switzerland. Robert (a colleague) was my guide - without him, *none of this* would have happened 🙏🏼
•
The air was crisp, the sun was warm, and the views were incredible. Wearing shorts got a few strange looks and some cat calls (in German), but Robert calmed everyone down by telling them I was Canadian 😆😆Ahhhh...Canadian (and crazy)
•
I was able to sneak in a run after the hike, which was another win. A slightly lower weekly mileage, but ask me if I’m rattled, or if I’m just rolling with it...go ahead, ask me! 😜
•
32km @ 4:58/km
20mi @ 7:59/mi
(well, 19.89mi to be precise 😬🤓)

  • I tell my runners how important it is to run easy on your easy/recovery days. How we shouldn't push the pace all the time and that we need those easy days so we are ready and rested to run hard on our quality days.
Well this was my easy day. Pace should be 4:55-5:05 pace. I keep pulling back but couldn't keep it in check. When I went out today I felt pressured for time and was trying to squeeze this in. Problem is, I ran by time and unfortunately running faster doesn't make the time go faster....maybe one day I'll get it!!
Let's see how the tempo run feels tomorrow. Probably, not good🤨🤨 #sauconycanada #Triumph17 #wintertraining #easyrunning #irun #mile2marathon #coachesrule #womenrunning #mastersrunning #runforgood

  • Finding your running groove when you return from an injury can feel like an uphill battle, but if you play it smart, your body will thank you!
.
I’m so glad I listened to my coach @devon.liversidge and physiotherapist @torunningphysio by easing back and taking care of my body when I injured my hip; especially when I was getting frustrated about the amount of time I would have to train for Tokyo. With just over seven weeks to go, I’m feeling great and ready to smash my 17th marathon!

  • Imagine leaving town, never having run any kind of race, then returning home to find yourself registered for a marathon! This is how Jeff Jones ran, not just his first marathon, but his first race ever. In 2017, he was out of town on a work trip when a confirmation email from the Mississauga Marathon suddenly appeared in his inbox. When he returned home, he found that his wife, who had watched her husband build his endurance and speed over 15 years, had decided to take the racing plunge for him and had registered him for all 42.2km of that spring’s Mississauga Marathon!
.
In May 2017, Jeff completed his first marathon (and first official race ever), finishing with an amazing time of 3:34! “I had no idea if that was good or bad but I was hooked on racing!” Since then, Jeff has run eight marathons and ten half-marathons, along with countless other 10 and 5k races. 2019 was his biggest year yet, with PBs in the marathon, half-marathon, and 10k distance. His marathon PB of 3:08:09 at the Ottawa Marathon marks his first BQ, and Jeff cannot wait to run his first Boston Marathon this April!
.
Aside from racing, Jeff is also passionate about the running community in and around Toronto. Although he lives in Milton, he does most of his long runs in Toronto along the MGT, especially in the summer when it seems like the community is out in droves, enjoying the long stretch of lakeside trail under the sun. Jeff’s goal for 2020 is to engage more fully with this wonderful community. He knows how easy it is to get caught up in the competitiveness of it all, so this year his top priorities are to have fun, stay injury free, and give back to the sport by volunteering and pacing at races.
.
Last but not least, we’ve gotta give a shout-out to Jeff’s wife for starting it all!

  • Snowmageddon here as we received 93 Cm in 24 hours yesterday, and there’s more on the way😳!
Well after getting a nasty head/chest cold around the 23rd of December, I finally felt like I had a little energy today! 
Rolled into the new year and through Christmas overindulging in food, desserts, and a little 🍷! But it’s all about balance right! 
This is the time of year people make resolutions to better themselves in any way possible, and I encourage you all to give your support to those willing to make positive changes in their lives! 
Backed off the intensity over the last 10 days but tried to hit all my workouts! A nice easy 2 hour indoor trainer ride , followed by 25 minutes on the treadmill! The last 30 minutes were tough but I got through it!  So into a new year, decade, and still striving to achieve some goals, even at 60, I still love to push my limits! Yeah, I’ve slowed , and am starting to lose muscle, but I’m still giving it a go! No excuses peeps! Get after it Enjoy the rest of the weekend, filled with happiness and gratitude!! #fitover60 #challengeyourself #nevertooold #triathlontraining #ironmantraining #ironmancanada2020 #monttremblant703 #running #cycling #swimming #grattitude #nordictrack #garmin935 #sauconycanada

Mine is the half marathon, although I recognize that in order to run a good half marathon I have to become good at the 5k, 8k and 10k as well as the marathon. Therefore, I end up running a lot of different distances and races throughout the year. *

  • #medalmonday !!! BERLIN MARATHON COMPLETE in 3:33:49 This means that I'm halfway towards completing the 6 @wmmajors and receiving the Six Star Finisher Medal. Who else ran this Sunday?
*
*
Although it's very far from my personal best (which was 3:18:xx), I promised to myself before I started the race that I wasn't going to complain about my time. I knew that I wasn't at my best because I was sick for a week leading up to the race. Considering everything that has happened between the time I ran a personal best and my most recent races (which have been really far from my personal bests), I'm just grateful to be out there. It will be a while before I attempt to get a personal best because that thing that happened in 2016 is still affecting my stride length and running economy... *
*
 HOWEVER, here's what was good about the race:
*
*
✅ I'm grateful that I beat my time from @nycmarathon last year *
*
✅ I ran a qualifying time for @chimarathon 2020
*
*
✅ I didn't get affected by the 9 hour time difference between Victoria, BC and Berlin, Germany. *
*
✅ I'm grateful to be able to afford to travel to do marathons in different countries (as that wasn't always the case)
*
*
✅ I'm thankful that my body still lets me do marathons and that I'm healthy enough to be able to pursue my goal of running all the 6 marathon majors and to run a marathon or half in every major city (I have a long way to go still)
*
*
✅ I'm grateful for all the good people I get to meet along the way as I continue on this running journey. *
*
So, what's next? I will be pacing the @runvictoriamarathon 8k in a couple of weeks, where I look forward to helping a group of runners reach their goal.
  • #medalmonday !!! BERLIN MARATHON COMPLETE in 3:33:49 This means that I'm halfway towards completing the 6 @wmmajors and receiving the Six Star Finisher Medal. Who else ran this Sunday?
