Coho Run and Bikram Yoga

I have 13 classes left to do for my hot yoga challenge and I have exactly 13 days left to complete them. This means I will be doing a yoga class every day for the next two weeks. Upon (hopefully) completing my challenge on Saturday, September 7, I will reward myself by taking Sunday off from exercise – HA just kidding! Sorry body … I will be participating in the 14k Coho Run in Vancouver.

The Coho Run is a 14k race starting in Kitsilano and ending in Ambleside where the Coho Festival is held. The run involves crossing the Burrard and Lions Gate bridges, which will make for a very scenic and exhausting course. This will be the second and longest race that I’ve participated in.

While my running training has taken a bit of a dive due to excessive yoga, my overall fitness has never been better. I have ran up to 16 km in my training runs and feel confident that I will be able to finish the race. If I feel like I can’t run any further, I will just think to myself “at least I’m not in a Bikram Yoga class” and it won’t seem so bad!



I started running about three years ago. Until this time i had never considered myself a runner and actually hated running. I’m not sure what changed but i’m glad it did! I enjoy sharing my thoughts, training, and experiences through my blog and encouraging and supporting others in their running journeys.

Since becoming a runner, I have completed a handful of half marathons, three full marathons, and four ultra marathons. However, my biggest accomplishments have been running the Rim2Rim2Rim in the Grand Canyon and completing a seven-day, 250km stage race in the Alps. These were adventures of a lifetime and something I had never imagined that I would do even in my wildest dreams!
