I COMPLETED THE WINTER WARRIOR CHALLENGE
March 31 2020
Over the past 3 months, I've been participating in the winter warrior challenge by Run Regina. The objective of the challenge was to complete 5 runs per week over the first 3 months of 2021. This also happens to be the coldest months in one of the coldest provinces in Canada. This was a test of toughness. I'm proud to say that I finished the challenge having ran 442.37 km in 76 runs. I completed every single run outside! That meant running a few days in -50 temperatures. With this challenge under my belt, I feel unstoppable.
