This Christmas, Santa was beyond kind to us! He came early and gave us a gift we couldn't be more appreciative of! A new sponsorship! Nutrition House Robson Street has been kind enough to take Joel Payeur and I on as their two sponsored athletes! As you know, we are both endurance runners taking on new mountain peaks and distances as often as we can. These runs sometimes last up to 7 hours and and a true feat of feet! Since we met we have ran local trails such as Lynn Loop, Capilano Pacific Trail, Baden Powell, Grouse Grind, and trails up in the Seymour Conservation Forest. On top of this, we have done Golden Ears (a hike supposed to take 16hours, which we ran in 6), Whistler, Blackcomb, Joffre Lakes, Brandywine Meadows, The Lions, Wedgemount Lake, Panorama Ridge, Helm's Pass, Diaz Vistas, Mount Seymour, and Brothers Creek. Talk about some busy feet! We've clocked thousands of metres elevation over 50,000m. Yes, Meters, not Feet!! Wowsa! Obviously, we need to fuel ourselves well for these accomplishments and trials of the mind, body and spirit! Nutrition House Robson Street has been fueling us for many months before hand but now they have kindly decided to officially be our sponsors.
They are providing us with everything our body needs to run for miles, literally! Protein, pre-workouts, recovery, vitamins, energy gels, minerals, electrolytes, greens, protein bars, probiotics and more!! With Nutrition House Robson Street backing us we can be unstoppable and take on even greater challenges. We can't wait to use their products down on our biggest quest yet to come, The Coastal Challenge. As mentioned before, this run will be over 125km through the jungles, beaches, rivers and trails of Costa Rica. We are raising money for cancer research in honour of Joel's mom and are taking donations which are 100% non profit as we are paying for our whole trip. Please check out our campaign page on Fundrazr.com called Running 4 a Cause for more details and to donate! :) Running 4 a Cause
So look forward to many more blogs and regales of our running adventures that are being fueled Nutrition House Canada! These stores are truly for everyone and we'd love to raise some more awareness of them! Athletes, Parents, Children, Seniors, Teens, there's more than you could imagine.
Thanks so much!!!
Hugs and love to you all!
