I took up running after I had gained a little weight in university and fell instantly in love with it. Since then I’ve had some memorable finishes, like coming 4th at the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Half marathon in 1:08 and a photo finish at last year’s Toronto Goodlife Half Marathon – 1.1 seconds away from the win during 40km/h winds and rain. I know I’m just scratching the surface and it’s been a super fun journey.
