My name is Trisha Reimer and I getting ready for the Kootenay Fun 5!!! I dreamed up the idea of a community walk/run to support my school, Kootenay Christian Academy, quite a few years ago… but only just got up the courage to make it happen for the first time last year! And what a year it was! With the support of all the teachers, staff, and families of KCA, plus endless community support, my KF5 Run Committee and I were able to give Cranbrook and area a fantastic day of fun, fitness, and family time! And now we’re in full swing for KF5 2017! Only 10 weeks away!
Last year I ran the race in 26:35. My goal this year is to beat that time, even if it’s just by one second! I am a fairly avid runner, so this is a good goal for me. I’ll be training to increase my speed by doing 400m intervals, alternating with 400m fast, then 400m slow jog or walk. I’m going to start this once the college track opens in spring, so until then I’m going to do slow and steady 5-10k runs, three times per week. I’m pumped to start working toward my goal! What’s your goal???
