Tribe Fitness Ugly Sweater Run

Last Wednesday marked the 4th annual Ugly Sweater Run that I’ve been a part of hosting. The first two years with our friends at the Queen St West Lululemon and the past two years with my own Tribe Fitness. The route is always similar, the sweaters continue to get uglier, and epic fun is always had by all.

1 Meeting on the NW corner of Queen and University, we make our way North to our first photo op at ROM twinkle lights tree.2From there it’s over to the windows at Holt Renfrew for some oohs and aahs and more photos.534We then make our way south on Yonge to Yonge Dundas Square to pose with the polar bears

We often hear from our runners how much fun they have, and how this is the run they look forward to the most. I’m glad we can continue to share it and that our Tribe continues to grow!

Happy Holidays!


Tribe Tunes: December 2

jayWith the running conditions getting a little more slip and slidey out there the Tribe Monday night #runcrew has started their Around the Bay hill training early. To kick off our newest weekly run, here are three motivating tunes by Tribe run leader Jason Pomerantz. If these tracks don’t push you out the door while lacing up those sneakers, I don’t know what will!*

As we transition into winter training, hills are the new intervals. The thing with winter and hill training is the general lack of motivation for all of us. Firstly, to get outside into the cold,  and then the double whammy of knowing that once you are out in the cold, you’ll be running hills.

There is no better way for me to get motivated to head out the door, than listening to some motivating tunes to pump me up and get me going!

These three songs are definitely motivating to me and they each have a certain something that helps me tackle winter hills!

3. Imagine Dragons – Radioactive. This is my new motivational tune – I love how it builds up from small and slow into a big sound with big drums hits and a faster tempo as it goes.

2. U2 – Elevation. We are climbing hills after all. We are gaining elevation and this middle tune helps keep up the pace.

1. Eminem – Lose Yourself. This is my all time favourite motivation song. When I’m struggling with a run, workout even a non-fitness related issue, this song never fails to pick me up when I’m hurting and put me back into the fight,  re-invigorated and re-energized. After all, “Success is the only mother!$&! option, failure’s not”.
