North Bay, Ontario, Canada
Approximately 6 ½ years ago after a nasty separation, Janice started walking every day after work to relieve stress. She gradually worked her way up to running. The regular activity helped her lose 30 pounds and feel amazing. After a short hiatus from physical activity due to work and life interferences, she began to sign up for fun runs in her area because she wanted to feel great again like she did when she was active. She found a great running partner, which helped her get back on track. Since there weren’t many races near her, she decided to participate in a few virtual events. She has since taken part in three Run Motivators 100 Mile Challenges and states that the support and inspiration she got from the interactive groups helped motivate her to continue running. Her 12-hour work days are physically exhausting, but she still commits to regular activity by setting a schedule to go to the gym several times each week. Janice has overcome many obstacles, including a recent injury, but she continues to persevere. We are inspired by her commitment and are proud to have her as a member of our fitness family.
