Meet your Clinic Coordinator!

Clinic Coordinator: Kristine Lewis

About Kristine: I'm a wife, mother of 2 teenage girls, and a coach. I am a trainer, fitness instructor, Youth Recreation Coordinator and love participating in Obstacle Course Races. I believe that life is a journey and that we are meant to live every moment to the fullest. I am passionate about, and get inspired by helping others get the most out of their journey while having a whole lot of fun along the way. Some say I am just a kid at heart which is okay with me. It's true, keeps me young and I would not have it any other way!

How long have you been involved with the InTraining Program? Since the program started 20+ years ago.

What is your favourite InTraining memory? There have been so many fabulous and memorable experiences over the many years I have been involved with this program. Every year I continue to be inspired by the strength and heart demonstrated by those who participate (and lead) in our clinic. Every year I see participants full of self-doubt on day one who struggle through barriers and want to give up. They continue to show up each week and push on. Through support, encouragement, laughter and yes even some tears, the transformation into the proud, confident person I see cross the finish line with the smile on their face that says I can do anything is nothing short of amazing. It is why I continue to do this and look forward to it every year.

Favourite place to run/walk? Byrne Creek or Deer Lake

What can participants look forward to this year with the Edmonds Community Centre group? Amazing leaders, fabulous support, educational information, terrific food, a sense of family and a whole lot of fun.

What participants have to say about the Edmonds Community Centre group:

"The leadership (Clinic Coordinators & Leaders) are possibly the best anywhere! They are all very down to earth, cordial, enthusiastic, knowledgeable and inspiring" - Elma

"This will be my fourth InTraining clinic! The leaders meet you at your level, whether you're just starting or have been running for a while." - Norm

"Kristine is my role model. She is always positive, always supportive, and always kind. She is there in all weather! She treats every participant with compassion, listening to their struggles and successes. I started as a participant 18 years ago, and am now a leader!" - Edmonds Leader

"I really enjoyed the program. If I was training on my own, I probably would have quit by now. The group kept me accountable and motivated!" - Kristine, Edmonds Participant
