It was a happy thanksgiving indeed! Felt strong out there on the wet, hilly roads of Victoria- and was able to run my 3rd fastest half marathon- 1:11:47😁 Thank you so much to all the people racing who were cheering for me in the middle of their own race!!! (It was out & back course for part) I heard each & every one of you & it was the motivation I needed to keep PUSHING up those dang hills!!! I love our running community & the support we all provide for each other💞 Thank you @runvictoriamarathon - Ulla & Lori for a wonderful weekend & taking such great care of us Elites🙏🤗 #victoriahalfmarathon #canadianrunning #runningcommunity #bettertogether #womensrunning #nikecanada #vaporfly #justdoit #bebrave Photo credit @danothemano1

Can’t believe it’s been 6 years since I raced the Victoria Half Marathon -one of my favourite races & cities! - super excited to head back this Sunday! Time to crush Natasha Fraser’s 2012 course record (1:14:06) & erase her from the record books FOREVER!!! #victoriahalfmarathon #victoriahalf

When I stole the mic from coach Lynn who was announcing the Oceans Athletics XC meet to tell everyone what a LEGEND she is!!! “Lynn was third in the World XC Champs - THIRD IN THE ENTIRE FREAKIN WORLD!!!!- kids look no further for inspiration than this lady!!” And I’m so incredibly grateful she’s my coach ❤️ #lynnisalegend #trustyourcoach #oceanselite @lynnkanuka Thx @jimhinze for capturing this photo!

Today’s recovery run had me feeling GRATEFUL! Running along the ocean with the sun shining & my body feeling good I couldn’t help but think about how fortunate I am- healthy, happy & surrounded by the most amazing friends, family & Alan Bolt! #lifeisgood #incrediblygrateful 🙌🙏❤️ It’s so important in this crazy busy stressful world we live in to stop for a moment & appreciate the simple things. Today it was the sun & the ocean breeze ☀️ 🌊

The Eastside 10k ran right by where I have been volunteering for the past 4 years- @vokra . Vancouver Orphan Kitten Rescue Association. They save the lives of thousands of helpless, abandoned, & sick kittens/cats every year. I wrote VOKRA in black marker on both of my legs to help bring awareness to this wonderful organization. Less than 20% of Vancouverites know what Vokra is- that there is a place to call if you see a kitten or cat in need. If you are a cat lover- we are always looking for more volunteers! Contact @Vokra if you are interested! #vokra #eastside10k #volunteering #catsofinstagram
