Athlete of the Day
Nora Bath from Ontario
I will aim for 2000K and then reevaluate once I get there.
Did you walk, jog or run this challenge?
I do a combination of running and walking every day.
How did you start running and why?
Two of my daughters are triathletes! They challenged me to do a 5K run in Toronto last year. I took up the challenge and did much better than I expected! I got hooked on running as a result.
How often do you walk and run?
I run 6-8KM every morning and walk 10 -15KM every afternoon.
What was your greatest obstacle while aiming to reach 1000KM?
Sometimes the weather has shortened my runs/walks, and occasionally I had to miss a run because I actually had to work!
How do you stay motivated and find the time to walk and run?
Running/walking is now part of my daily routine, so I do not have to think about “should I or shouldn’t I.” I just do it!
What advice would you give someone to stay focused on reaching 1000KM in 2020?
Never say “I can’t” and age is not an excuse!
