Clinic Coordinator: Faride (formerly the West Point Grey CC)
About Faride: I'm originally from Ecuador, I moved to Vancouver 17 years ago and from the day that I placed a foot in this city I knew I was going to stay. I was always involved in sports, but my love for running started 9 years ago when I had my second child and was finishing grad school; I wanted some time for myself to relax and found that running give me that feeling.
How long have you been involved with the InTraining Program? This is my 6th year as a leader and I did two years as participant.
What is your favourite InTraining memory? During my third year of running, my daughter joined as participant and we both pushed and support each other.
Favourite place to run/walk? I feel we have the best location for our clinic. We run the Jericho/Spanish Banks beach trail.
What can participants look forward to this year with the BATW group? I think the best adjective to describe us is supportive. We are a small clinic that takes care of each participant and try to accommodate the different levels of fitness. We look forward to each week to see each other and catch up and enjoy our run.
