Welcome to my blog, Go Do.
I’m just a gal Toronto, ON that loves running and training.
I started my fitness journey back in 2008 and began running for one of the most common reasons: to lose weight. When I first started, I could barely run a few kilometres without stopping (and gasping for air). Slowly, I got better—improving incrementally by increasing my distance and lowering my pace.
I ran my first half marathon in 2010 and since then, have run several marathons (including two world majors: the 2019 TSC NYC Marathon and the 2017 Boston Marathon), a 50-mile trail, race and a 100-mile race.
In 2017, I broke a world record by running 74 consecutive half marathons (21.1km/13.1 miles) while raising over $10,000 for the Canadian Cancer Society. After finishing my 74th run, well, I just kept running…
I’m now approaching the 4 year mark of running consecutively (an average of 10 kilometers per day). Over the years, I’ve developed a deeper, more ardent love for the sport. Calories in vs. calories out or body recomposition goals are no longer a prime motivator for me; I’ve discovered a deeper meaning in my training which has provided me with a much more sustainable approach to fitness.
Running every day has taught me a hell of a lot and has completely transformed me as a person. In 2018, I launched the #RUN30 Consecutive Running Challenge to share what I learned with others—providing a framework to help those who want to embark on their own running journey.
I’m by no means an elite athlete, but enjoy challenging myself and experimenting with various nutrition and training strategies to improve my performance. I’ve never had a precocious talent for distance running – I’m just a normal person that has put in the ongoing work to achieve goals that are important to me.
Whether you’re just starting to run or have been running for quite some time, I welcome you! I’ve been running for over 13 years now, more I progress, the more I realize how much I don’t know. I’m always experimenting, learning, and tweaking. The end goal for me is to continue improving—both as a runner and as an overall better human being.
