Meet Sharon From Canada!

For Global Running Day, we are celebrating runners from all over the globe! Follow the stories on our Instagram page.


Sharon Gallant is from Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, and we asked her a few questions about running:

Why do you run?

So many reasons…I feel most connected to myself when I run. Because I can, because so many can’t, and to feel strong.

Describe your favorite place to run.

Beside my best friend and soon to be husband, Andy.

What’s your go-to pre- or post-run meal?

Pre-run: Peanut butter and banana on a flat bread. Post-run: Eggs and avocado.

What makes you a badass?

This weekend I lined up at the start line of the Comrades Ultra Marathon in South Africa (90K run). It’s been on my bucket list for years. Making it happen makes me a bad ass. That and running my long training run of 40 miles in the snow in Denver (altitude).

How will you celebrate Global Running Day?

I’ll no doubt be in a state of recovery from my 90K—but I will lace up my shoes for a walk/jog to celebrate with all of the international runners.
