The Best (Ottawa)

Do you remember when we did the Sunrise 6K two weeks ago? There was something about sharing how we felt, and connecting together virtually that was pretty special. Today was the exact same distance, early morning 6k, same, same, but yet, we shared the sunrise with the entire world.

Some of our most memorable physical accomplishments may not have been personal records or the most successful attempts. Through these tense times, our goal is to celebrate the privilege of being able to move and create a connection with our fellow humans. In reflecting together, the connection continues with your story from this morning that you can share with the world.

Record your attempt in Strava. After you submit your entry, you’ll receive an email where we’ll ask you to describe your run. You’ll have the opportunity to write about what made this run unique/interesting/fast/slow/creative or whatever it might be. You will be judged based on the run description and not your time. If you don’t want to start an account, you can fill out this form here

This is a story contest, and we are excited to see the stories that arise. However, we are proud of what you have already done this morning. We’re glad you showed up, we’re glad to have shared the sunrise with you, wherever that may have been. Sometime around the 5:53am timeframe, we were all moving our bodies- walking, running, somewhere on pavement, grass, sand, gravel, streets, farms, through trees, through mountains anybody? I’m not sure if anyone ran on snow this morning, but it’s possible! Thanks for sharing it together.

Here’s to bringing “soles” together, a little differently right now.
