Team Canada for Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon!

Well, here it is! A picture of me with my Team Canada jacket. I will run with 3 other Canadians in the International Team Challenge Sunday, September 27. This morning at the press conference I met Fauja Singh & Ed Whitlock. Six years ago, at the Scotiabank Toronto Marathon Singh ran 5:40:04 a new 90+ marathon record; Whitlock ran 2:59:10 to set a new mark for 70+ and become the only septuagenarian on the planet to go under the magic 3-hour barrier. Today they are (I believe) 98 and 78 years old, respectively. Singh will run the 5 km and Whitlock will run the 1/2 marathon Sunday. Pretty spectacular, don’t you think?!

  2. Congratulations on a fantastic run – a personal best and first woman for Canada – we're so proud! Your sponsors have a GREAT representative in you!
    I keep thinking how proud Dad (and Mom) would be of you – how, as a runner, you demonstrate two things he valued: excellence in your athletic accomplishments and a classy, humble, sportsmanlike spirit.

  3. Way to go Krista! CONGRATULATIONS!!! I see you had a great race in Toronto. That must of been exciting to race against so many people from around the world. Your hard work has paid off.
