The Importance of Race Support

Over the past 3 years, since I started to get into racing, I have come to appreciate the important role spectators and volunteers pay in race day success.

More often than not, a personalized cheer from someone along the route or a high five as you run past, can give you that extra push that you need to keep going. And the volunteers waiting patiently with water and gels in hand are like little heavenly angels who fuel you for glory.

I always do my best to Thank them along the way. But this year I knew I wanted to be one of them. I wanted to give back my time and energy to a sport that had given so much to me.

Enter Mizuno Canada and the Toronto Women's Run Series.

I will be spending this Sunday as a Mizuno Runbird Race Guide for the 5km event. In other words I will be your cheerleader, support system, pacer, water-fetcher, high-five give-er, or anything else you might need along the course. I can't wait! Whether you are going out for your first race or you are striving for a Personal Best - I want to help as best I can!

I will be dressed in green, and rocking that neon green visor. So look for me! Let me know if you need anything. I will be there for you!

Love Your Favourite Darwinian Fail,
