Q: Why do you volunteer to be on the board of Run Nova Scotia?

A: I volunteer on the board for a number of reasons - the board is made up of fantastic people who respect each other and Run Nova Scotia members so I enjoy hearing their opinions and perspectives on a sport that I love. I also want to make a difference by contributing what I can and sharing my skills. I love getting an age class award at the Run Nova Scotia awards banquet too and sitting on the board puts me 60 pts closer to that goal ;) 

 

Q: How long have you volunteer on the Run Nova Scotia board?

A: Since December 2014

 

Q: What is your favorite Run Nova Scotia series event and why?

A: Nova Scotia Marathon, Half Marathon and 10km - the event is well organized, the race director and staff are dedicated to making the event bigger and better (including working with the local community), it's a community event, it's in a beautiful location in NS, the food is awesome, there are tons of prizes for its participants, the course is a bit of a challenge without being overwhelming, it's timing couldn't be more perfect - happening midway through my training most years and it's also far enough away from home to feel like a mini vacation.

 

Q: Why do you run?

A: I run to be with friends, to stay healthy, to proactively defend myself against stress, to be happy and to eat many more than one dessert.
