Adidas and Girls of T.O. Run More

Adidas and Girls of T.O. Run More

I run because I love it!

Sometimes I run super slow, sometimes I run so fast my heartbeat and breathe is all I hear echoing in my ears. Sometimes I run with friends and sometimes I run alone.

Regardless, like a lot of people I find a way to make excuses not to run. I can always run more.

This November 1st, for Daylight Savings, I plan on running more. Joining Adidas on one of the most unique runs ever, I’m so excited to be part of what I hope will be a yearly thing.

Starting off at at Ontario Place at 1 a.m., I’ll be hitting the pavement with fellow runners for a one-of-a-kind Adidas #runmore 10K. When I’m done, the clocks go back and it’s 1 a.m. again.

No excuses about not having time to run, because really, it took no time at all. Cleaver isn’t it?!

Why I run?

I get asked a lot about why run. With bad knees from playing basketball you’d think I would find other ways of staying active. But I can tell you, nothing compares to waking up early on a Sunday morning,  and running along streets usually so overrun with the hustle and bustle of Monday-Friday city living. I ease in, taking long, deep strides, and even deeper inhales of crisp air. I take my time. I feel like it’s just me out there, the only person awake in Toronto. That’s why I run.

So, if you’re like me and love to run, but can sometimes make excuses, join me. Click here to take advantage of the 25-hour day and #runmore.

You can’t say you don’t have time, because it doesn’t cost you any. And, after the run, stick around and celebrate!

Here are the details:

I'm Lisa, a real born and bred Torontonian in every sense of the word. I'm a PR practitioner by day with a fabulous client list, at a very cool boutique firm in the core with a view of the city that can make anyone want to move here. I have a mild to moderate hat obsession, and you’ll usually find me searching the city for the next big chef, and rarely without a fashion or décor magazine in my purse. Before PR, I was a travel writer/editor/photographer, and spent most of my time travelling the world and bringing my stories back here. The rest of the time I spent indulging in the city's untapped culinary scene as Post City Magazine's main restaurant photographer. But, no matter where I am in the world, nothing beats coming home. That's why I've spent the last few years planting my roots here, moving from Toronto’s uber-chic west side to the heart of Greek Town in a modern Victorian semi (a.ka. my lifelong décor project), with my husband and super-stylish son. Yes, I'm one of those moms, the one who won't give up her sense of style post-baby bump; and why should I?! I aspire to have my cake and eat it too - I am Italian after all. And, now why my 2-year-old in tow, I can bring him along for the ride.
