BY: ASHLEY DIER

ACADEMY OF LIONS BLOGGER ASHLEY DIER SITS DOWN WITH CRAIG MORRISON, FOUNDER AND TEACHER OF OASIS SKATEBOARD FACTORY.

ACADEMY OF LIONS - RUN CREW PRESENTS: RUNLAB 2.0

COACH JENNY MC BREAKS DOWN THE RUNLAB AND HOW IT HAS AND WILL SET THE PATH FOR THE ROAD TO SCOTIA. 

Joining a community of people striving for similar goals makes it much easier to achieve them. With that in mind, RunLab was born. Through the Academy of Lions Run Crew, this past January we set forth a common goal and challenge for anyone who was up for it. We chose a race which allowed runners to choose from 5km, 10km, 21.1km and 42.2km distances and put forth a training program to help them reach their goals.

3:27 with a 25 minute pb. 
All that work fully paid off. 
Huge thanks to this man who helped carry me strong through this horrible weather. I can't even tell if it was rain, sweat or tears in my eyes, but my first beer washed that all away.
