Is this Real Life?!

I have been talking about a project behind the scenes for the past few weeks. Everything has been kind of cryptic. And I haven't been able to say much about it... until now!

I was asked to shoot a commercial with Sport Chek as part of their new #SweatForThis Campaign.

I was flabbergasted when they asked. The whole process felt overwhelming and little daunting. I was honoured to be asked. And completely terrified. (*I also immediately stopped eating excessive amounts of Easter Chocolate*)

Now don't get me wrong, this is clearly an amazing opportunity. But it was one that I didn't feel I entirely deserved.

I realize I have faced some challenges. I have had some medical setbacks. I have experienced loss. But I also understand that I am not the only one.

Everyone is fighting their own battle. And while this is mine, this is also just my life. Nothing special.

I am just some girl running average race times trying to do the best she can with the circumstances life decided to hand her way.

So when film crew of 30 people showed up at my house to shoot this commercial I was humbled.
I still am.

Without further adieu, this is me in a nutshell. This is what I sweat for.

Thank You Sport Chek. 
Thank You for letting me share my story. Thank you for your commitment to health and sport. And Thank You for this amazing day. It truly was once in a lifetime experience.
