-December 2nd, 2016-

img_2208Last Sunday Jaclyn, Brett, and I were asked to help warm up about 150 participants of the CameronHelps #BoldandCold 5K run here in Oakville. is an organization that provides Youth Suicide Awareness and Prevention Programs. It was a great fit as most of our clients are youth athletes.

I had never led a warm up for that many people before but decided pretty quickly I wouldn’t mind stepping out of my comfort zone as it is a great cause.

With that many people of all ages and levels I knew I’d have to do some different things from our regular warm ups.

img_2228Somewhere along the line in planning the only thing I could think was to say rhymes while leading the stretch to have some fun with it. Here are some of them:

  • Gonna have some fun and go for a run
  • Gotta get our minds right and our body tight
  • It’s a great day for a 5K
  • Gotta get some motion in that ankle, when you finish pain free you’ll be thankful!

That last one was my favourite, and after a few seconds of saying it I couldn’t help it and patted myself on the back over the Microphone and said “Nailed It”.
