Find 52: Robin's Runners
Age is no barrier. It’s a limitation you put on your mind.
A word after a word after a word is power.
I am part of the Guelph running community, and when not out running the roads and trails around Guelph, I teach English at Centennial Collegiate and help coach the cross country and track teams. I could not say which is more vital to me – reading or running – which is why I am supporting the OneWorld Schoolhouse Foundation. Through my own running I have learned that with passion and hard work the seemingly impossible becomes possible. As a result of careful training and wonderful coaching, I have run my fastest times in the 5 km, 10 km, half marathon and marathon since turning 50.
My running goals are to dip below 3:08 in the marathon this spring or fall, and then to join Richard in his multi-marathon run around St. Lucia next summer. My fundraising goal is to encourage 100 people who appreciate the joy of reading and/or running to donate at least $52, all of which will go directly towards enriching the lives of the youth of St. Lucia by providing them with books and the chance to celebrate their reading. Please consider making a donation, for which you will receive a tax receipt.

On May 23, every grade at CCVI got involved in fundraising. Canadian Olympic Marathoner Eric Gillis joined students on our track. I even got a pic with Eric!
