Anna Charbonneau is a 44 year old working mother from Alberta who rediscovered running during the pandemic. She first took up the sport back in 2007 pushing her newborn baby in the jogging stroller, but as life got busier over the next decade running slowly became more ad-hoc and reactive rather than purposeful and intentional. Pandemic closures were the catalyst for her to re-evaluate where her own health and wellness fit into the picture, and she turned to running as a familiar and safe exercise outlet. Those first steps were tough, but as you’ll hear in this interview Anna persevered.
It’s always refreshing to hear from someone who is crystal clear about why they run and what they want to get out of it. If you’re struggling to make movement a priority as we hit the two year mark in this pandemic, be sure to listen to the very end for why Anna thinks now is the best time to (re)establish a fitness habit.
