A tough, but beautiful half-marathon through Vancouver
On Sunday, June 25th, a group of IF members as well as a coach, got up nice and early to enjoy the sun and run 21.1 km for the Scotiabank Half-Marathon. They joined over 3000 other runners! Large groups started our at 7:30 AM at The University of British Columbia. They were all doing their own specific pre-race rituals — stretching, taping, light sprints etc. It was a gorgeous day for the run, and a beautiful route, passing by multiple beaches (Spanish Banks, Jericho, Kitsilano) over the Burrard Street Bridge. Following their route into Downtown, they passed two more beaches (Sunset, and English Bay). So, after a long 21.1 km, they finished their run up at Stanley Park. Encouragement from groups of people along the route, and familiar faces towards the finish line helped the runners to keep pushing towards the end. Upon arriving at Stanley Park everyone took a few minutes to recuperate, and stretch. Finally, after the much needed stretch, they head out to get some much needed food and rest.
Though it was a new experience for some, having never ran that distance before, but a fun time that they will not soon forget. Due to their hard work and dedication, they accomplished something sizable and reached the finish line! Congratulations to everyone who ran it! This half-marathon was just a stepping stone for some of our members to achieve their goals. Therefore, run related or not, talk to one of our trainers and we will work with you to get you to fitness goals!
