Kelowna - Pacific Sport Okanagan
Meet your Clinic Coordinator!
Clinic Coordinator: Christy Lovig
About Christy: I am a competitive runner of 33+ years, a coach of 20+ years, and a general movement ambassador of all of my 40 years! I love to move and take great delight in inspiring movement in others.
How long have you been involved with the InTraining Program? 6 Years as a Clinic Coordinator
What is your favourite InTraining memory? Very generally-speaking, there is no greater feeling than cheering a beginner runner across the finish line for their first 10km at the Sun Run…except perhaps the feeling, post-race, when that same runner asks for help in training for their next goal race! Once people realize that their limits are actually far beyond where they thought them to be, they start to reassess their goals both on and off the road. I love being able to genuinely say to people, “I know you can do this. And I cannot wait for you to realize that you can too.”
Favourite place to run/walk? The beautiful Greenway, bordering Mission Creek.
What can participants look forward to this year with the Kelowna group? Support, camaraderie, elation, high fives, endorphins, inspiration and laughter, amongst MANY other things! There are two distinct parts to every year: the part that involves the Sun Run Clinic, and the part that involves me missing the Sun Run Clinic. I cannot wait to return to the former to reunite with our returning participants and leaders and meet our new runners! Here's to movement, achieving goals and changing lives in 2018!
