  • TMO New Year | Take Me Outside
    It was a leap of faith fueled by strong convictions about the time we spend outside and a determination to fulfill a dream that had made its way onto my New Year s list for years and years My parents were a constant support throughout the run and I always felt them with me But a funny thing happened along the way I started to feel other people with me Classroom teachers students friends parents outdoor educators mechanics grocery store cashiers so many latched onto this message and joined in engaging youth in the conversation of the time we spend in front of screens balanced with the time we spend outside While I still had to physically run a marathon on my own every day I started to feel like I was being carried that those who grew with me on this journey knew it wasn t about some guy running across Canada but that something greater was at work On October 25 as I dipped my toe into the Pacific after 7600 kilometres I felt thousands and thousands of people with me For that I am so grateful As I look to the year ahead apart from the top ten lists we are inundated with things we should or shouldn t be doing with causes we should or shouldn t be supporting among many other lists of how to effectively lead our lives It can become overwhelming to think about which ocean creatures should top my list for saving or is it the ocean itself which war torn countries most need my financial help what local bylaw needs tackling which petition forms I should sign and what vegetables will most likely reduce my chances of cancer So please forgive me for adding one more to the list But when

    knowing her well but got a big thumbs up from one of my good friends who is good friends with J Mac Over the last 3 weeks I have seen what a warm soul she has She has made me laugh she has cooked amazing meals for me she even came out to meet me at the end of a couple of days to run the last few kilometers together She made these amazing origami stars that had encouraging messages in them for days I was a bit down She took 3 weeks of her life that she could have been teaching and actually making money to come out and help someone whose message she believed in Unquestionably there is no way I could have run through the mountains without a support person I am so grateful to Jen for her help I m even more grateful for a new friend a friend who saw me through some tough moments who lived with my chaotic code for messy lifestyle in the RV and who saw past my shortcomings which are many It feels pretty neat to now that years down the road we ll be able to get together and reminisce laugh and poke fun at each other for some of the moments we ve had Jen thank you It is difficult to express how much it means to have had your help over the last 3 weeks You are an amazing teacher a passionate creature and an incredible individual Thank you Only days are left in this run across Canada I am overwhelmed with some of the emails I have been receiving from friends and strangers I am thankful for the support people have shown I am excited to dip my toe in the Pacific to have my parents
