Happy Friday!! Hope everyone had a great week. The weather in Toronto has been incredible lately and it has put me in a pretty awesome mood. Crazy how a little vitamin D can do wonders for you, huh? Another thing I’m stoked about –> I can finally tell you guys about Sport Chek and their #SweatForThis campaign! This has been in the works for a while and it’s so great to see everything come together.
“There’s a reason why the bottom of you foot’s called a sole. Running’s part of who we are.”
I just LOVE. THIS. VIDEO. You may also recognize Krysten in there!!
I will be working with Sport Chek over the next few weeks to bring you running-related posts (for a change!). We are ultimately celebrating the reasons why we SWEAT. It can be anything and heck, my reasons change daily! Sometimes I sweat to keep my sanity while other times I head out with a specific workout in mind to take me closer to my BQ goal. I’ll even admit that there are days I solely want to sweat so that I can break in new shoes or a new running outfit.
Speaking of, I was able to pick up some new-to-me brands from Sport Chek over the past couple of weeks and it’s been fun trying them out! Here are just a few of the things I’ve been running in:
I’ll show you the rest of the goodies in upcoming posts!
I’ve definitely stepped out of my beloved Mizuno comfort zone with these but I honestly have nothing but good things to say so far! I can post more thorough reviews of the shoes once I run more miles in them (if anyone is interested). They’ve been good to my feet and have done a great job at helping me get my sweat on…so I call that a big WIN. Truthfully, my runs haven’t been anything to write home about lately. They’ve been slower and a little more difficult than usual but I’ve been trying not to be too hard on myself. Marathon training starts next month so I’ve been pretty relaxed with my pace but there are still days where I get frustrated. Going back to that Sport Chek video though, “if you put one foot in front of the other, you’re a runner” …even on days you don’t feel like one (which has been the case lately!).
I’m excited for the weeks to come and looking forward to getting back into the swing of things. Training for the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon starts in just a few weeks and Sport Chek’s #SweatForThis campaign is the perfect way to kickstart it. Don’t forget to use the hashtag #SweatForThis on Instagram and Twitter to share your running stories/reasons why YOU sweat! I think we can all draw inspiration and motivation from each other!! I love the running community so much.
I hope you have a wonderful day and weekend!!!
