Hi Salty Runners! Greetings from the True North! I’m Maple and I’m thrilled to bring you the Canadian Eh-dition of Salty Running! Yes, that’s right. You’ve got yourself a running friend north of the 49th parallel.
Like Pesto, who you met yesterday, I wasn’t always a runner. I grew up in a professional ballet school and never participated in sports. Ultimately though, I fell out of love with ballet and knew it was not the path for me. I am grateful for my years in ballet as it instilled in me a very strong work ethic and appreciation for the hours that go into a successful performance.
Throughout university I dabbled in activities to stay in shape, but never really found my groove. I battled to keep weight off, and like many, I struggled to feel comfortable and confident in my own skin.
