Here’s what Victoria had to say about the Women’s Running Summit: What I love about the sport of running is it has given me many opportunities to travel across the country and I have made many life-long friends from all around Canada as well. I also love that running pushes me to my limits and has taught me many life lessons such as dedication and perseverance. What I am looking forward to with the 2019 WRS is sharing my love for running with all the women and to share my story about education and running.
