How many years have you run the WFPS: 3 this year

Favorite thing about the WFPS Run: I love the community that the WFPS has created and continues to promote.  The year-long events and support of other runs, and the size and visibility of the event mark it as a major event in Manitoba.  I am honored to be a part of something so special.  Three years ago, I decided to get off the couch and get back in shape, I ran a 5k event in the spring and set my sights on something that I thought was unattainable, but just crazy enough that it was possible, I decided to run a half marathon, the WFPS 2017.  I had the date circled on my calendar for 6 months, training for it was my mantra.  At the expo, I was overwhelmed with supportive and smiling faces who congratulated and encouraged me.  After the event, I fully devoted myself to becoming a runner and run-community member like them, with the goal of encouraging and inspiring others in the same way.
