With nine weeks to go until race day, Chris McBride the Mortgage Intelligence – Oshawa team captain and his training partner Kurt Lupson are vigorously training for the big race. Their training entails shorter runs (7 – 8 Km) on Sunday & Monday, cross training on Tuesdays, 10 – 15 Km from Wednesday – Friday. Although the duo are unable to schedule longer runs during the week, due to their full time jobs and demanding schedules. This training schedule helps them to stick to a consistent routine. They focus on longer runs ranging from 25 -30 Km on Saturdays.
Chris is an IT Change Manager at TD Bank and he finds running helpful to relax, with his challenging career. He also believes that “you set a goal and you work towards it. Once you have reached your goal you only want to get better so you set another and it continues to evolve.”
Reason for participating:
Chris says “there are many reasons to participate in this event. My sole reason is, I have found something that I am good at and through my running if I can help raise money and awareness for those in need, it is a ‘must do’ for me.” I truly believe in the phrase “pay it forward”. I do like to do what I can, to help those in need and those in my community.
