What you guys think of hardens performance last night 👌🏼
The @runforwater Foundation raises funds for clean water projects in Ethiopia. What I love about this Foundation is that the money raised in each race goes towards a specific project rather than a general pool. In Ethiopia, girls are responsible for collecting water every day which can be a two or three hour trip each way. This means that girls often have to choose between leaving school and collecting water during the day or staying in school and risking their safety to collect water at night.
The @yyc@yyc@yycrunforwater will be raising money for the Sheni Kondala community where local school girls have inspired their community to raise 10% of the funds to get the project started! The @yycrunforwater will contribute the remainder of the funds needed to bring clean drinking water to their village.
I was already excited to be a Race Ambassador for the @yycrunforwater taking place on June 9th but when I learned that this year’s project was not only going to be providing clean water to the Sheni Kondala community but helping girls to stay safe and pursue an education, I was too excited to sleep and knew I had to do more than just promote and run the race. I’ll be running the Edmonton Marathon on August 19th and then six weeks later, I’ll be running the Chicago Marathon which will be my first World Major Marathon! Two marathons in six weeks is going to be a lot for me but I’m excited to use these races as an opportunity to raise awareness and funds for the Run for Water.
I’ll be running 42.2km in Edmonton and then another 42.2km in Chicago so I am aiming for 84.4 donations to the Run for Water and the Sheni Kondala community. There is no minimum donation. Every dollar truly counts. I’ve created a board to track the number of sponsored kilometers and I’m hoping to have all 84.4 spaces filled by June 9th. This way, I can think of each person during both the Run for Water and during their kilometer of my marathons 💙 Of course, you can pick your number! Just message me your number! First come first serve.
The link to donate is in my bio! I truly appreciate your support 💙🏃🏼♀️

I’m in #Montreal for work this week which is close to where my parents live so I came home early for the weekend!! A weekend at home means Saturday morning spin @raw.fit with my mom and #SundayRunday on my favourite country roads. Today was such a beautiful day and one of those runs where I just didn’t want to stop. My marathon’s not until August though and I’m still trying to take it easy on my foot so I settled for a nice little 4️⃣ mile progression run - 8:58, 8:40, 8:32, 8:06 💙🏃🏼♀️ it’s good to be home ☺️
