Its eight more weeks to go until race day and Kurt Lupson and his training partner Chris McBride are busy with their training. On top of the intense running schedule, Kurt also does kick boxing & jiu jitsu on Sundays, weight training on Tuesdays and plays hockey with Chris McBride on Thursdays.
Kurt is a Fire Alarm Technician at Mircom and he is in charge of checking building fire safe equipment and ensuring all safety equipment is operational and on par with the safety code. His typical work week ranges from 46 – 56 hours and can be extremely stressful. As a result four years ago, Kurt started running 5 km a few times a week as a fitness regime. Since starting running, he has participated in three marathons – Whitby International Marathon, Toronto Scotia Bank Marathon and the Mississauga Marathon.
Kurt’s reason for signing up:
“This is a great cause! I have seen how people can be affected by cancer and wanted to do my part by helping, in any way that I can.”
