Who are you?

Girl Training for MarathonMarathon Training? Two words I never thought would be relevant to me. My name is Angela, and when I was in third grade, my gym teacher told me that I was so slow because I didn’t “have the knees to be a runner”. After years of childhood body-shame and crippling shyness, (Thanks Mr. Holliday!) I jumped on the fitness train as a teenager, and eventually found running.

I started this blog to chronicle my training, both as a log for myself, and potentially a resource for others. I know I learn best when reading about the anecdotal experiences of others. Perhaps someone could learn something from my journey too.

A few personal side-notes about me: I’m Canadian. I cry when I hear the national anthem. I’m very proud of my wrap and sandwich making skills. I’ll turn red with fury if my socks ever get wet indoors. I once had my picture taken holding a baby kangaroo, sitting on Santa’s lap.
