Run for the hills

I am very excited to post that S and I will be running the Rocky Mountain Soap Women’s half marathon in Canmore this year.   I have run in a lot of races, and there is something awe-inspiring about running in a women’s only run.  The camaraderie is heart warming and the fabulous female role models that turn up to run in Canmore is astonishing.  I have no problem being left in the dust by the 50 and over age group.  I am inspired by it!

As most of you will know, Rocky Mountain Soap Company had their beginnings in Canmore, and have expanded across Canada.  As the website says, their passion is:

To find the most nurturing and therapeutic ingredients nature has to offer and impart their healing qualities into a collection of 100% natural bath and body products.

I can stand by that philosophy! The Rocky Mountain Soap Women’s Run/Walk also initially began in Canmore, later adding a Winnipeg run. Proceeds from the event will benefit the Pink and Green Ribbon Health Campaign.

Pink represents their commitment to healthy breast education with a focus on prevention
Green represents their initiative to educate people on the connection between the environment and women’s health

For any readers out there who are looking to add a scenic, friendly and uplifting event to their 2011 running/walking plans, please add this event to your roster.  You won’t be disappointed!  More to come later on our preparation and training plans : )
