Hi everyone, hope you’re all doing well on this beautiful Thursday night!
Are any of you fortunate enough to have a coach? Tag them below and tell me what makes them so awesome!
#tbt to this year’s @lululemonto Waterfront 10K and 1 of my fav racing memories. Was it because of my new 10K PB that I had set that hot & humid day? Nope!
The highlight of this race was when I suddenly hit the wall physically (and, mentally!!) at the 8K mark, and, my coach (@devon.liversidge from @m2m_toronto), came out of nowhere and paced me to the finish! I’ve always heard stories about how fellow runners had someone join them in a race to help pace them for certain distances...but, I’d never had that happen to me. That small gesture helped give me a massive boost, and, I overcame the negative thoughts I was having, and, went on to crush my race.
It’s one thing to have a coach provide you with training plans and tips...but, it’s another thing when they see you fading mid-race & literally jump in to help you out! If you’re in Toronto & you want a friendly, knowledgeable, and, caring coach, you should definitely reach out to Coach Dev. Yes, he’s going to force you to step outside of your comfort zone..but, I’m telling you, you will love it, especially once you see the positive results on race day!
Best of luck to Dev as he prepares to race in the Reykjavik Marathon!
Have a great evening...and, just think, our weekend is almost here!! #shaneruns #noexcuses #ciele #everybodyrun #runyourworld #saucony #rideiso #m2mtoronto #runtobeer #throwback #throwbackthursday #thursday
