Hi! Welcome to Canadian Girl Runs! I’m Kris!

I am a born and raised Canadian girl who loves to be outside. I have always been active and my family and I never stop moving. My parents have been amazing role models for my brother and I in leading a healthy lifestyle. One of the many reasons I started running seven years ago was the fact that I have watched my mom go for a walk or run almost every single day of my life! She is a huge inspiration for me and one of my best friends.

I have played almost every sport imaginable growing up including soccer, basketball, hockey, curling, track and field, swimming, biking, and skiing. Now I am attempting to maintain my healthy lifestyle through strength training, hiking, spin classes, swimming, cycling, walking, and running!

I am competitive and love to have a goal in mind, whether it is academic goals or future races, I am an OCD planner. I have walked and run marathons, half marathons, ultra marathons, and smaller races, and plan to participate in many more. My favourite race so far has been running the Chicago Marathon.


I am by no means an expert when it comes to fitness, I am just trying my best to live a life full of happiness, health, and laughter. I love adrenaline and have bungee-jumped, learned to shoot a handgun, and skydived, and been inked.

I also love food. With all of this exercise I have to refuel somehow and what better way than peanut butter, beer, coffee, raspberries, and dark chocolate? Hopefully you find a little bit of enjoyment reading about my adventures around Alberta, some running trials and errors, my love of spin classes, and hiking and camping around this beautiful country of ours.

Interested in working with me? Let me know – contact me!

  3. Hi Kris
    I just found your blog and love it. I am also soon inspired by your Mom. I am looking forward to following your posts as I too love to move and eat.
    My daughter did the West Coast Trail last summer and loved it. It is kind of a right of passage for any good island girl or ex-island girl in her case. Say hi to your Mom.
