My name is Andy Wilson, and beginning on January 1st, 2021, I will begin my journey and challenge by running a minimum of 5km per day, for 365 days. That is a total of 1825km (not including races), which is more than I have ever run in a full year.
It was in February of 2019, when we received the news that my Dad had died of a heart attack. He was out doing what he loved, being outdoors and being in the moment. He made a point to live life to its fullest, in the only way he knew how.
Yes I will be running every day for a full year, but this is less about me and more about my want to help provide as many resources as I can, and to help raise money for Heart & Stroke, to assist with their next research breakthrough. The donations I raise will support initiatives in my community that promote health, save lives, and enhance recovery.
If you see me out running through the streets of Ottawa, a quick hello, a cheer, or even if you want to join me, would be more than appreciated. You are also welcome to follow me through my blog, where I will be updating my progress throughout the year.
I thank you in advance for any support you are able to give.
