They didn't end up using much of my interview at all, just this one quote about how Rick's journey influenced my outlook on life:
“When I heard about this anniversary relay, it was so emotional for me. Rick Hansen was such a big influence on my childhood, on my life. He taught me about pushing past my boundaries.”and the photo was definitely cute :)
They did slightly misquote me in the rest of the article. They said I run MARATHONS for charity, when I have only run one half for charity and a little bit fundraising for the Mother's day run. I do plan to run more, though so maybe it was her way of looking into my future for me :)
Just a reminder to anyone who wants to come cheer me on, I will be running sometime between 11 and 11:15am tomorrow (Feb 26) on the Northbound side of Macleod Trail between Glenmore and the Pedestrian Bridge.
Edited to add: the article appears on page A6 in today's Herald for anyone who has the paper :)
