This week we are really excited to welcome marathoner Stephanie McGregor to the show! You'll know Steph from her catchy Instagram handle, Any Given Runday, her dynamic smile, upbeat attitude and true love for running.  Stephanie is a marathoner, ultramarathoner, mom to a toddler and a physiotherapist who lives in the gorgeous city of Vancouver. 

In this conversation, we chat with Steph all about her journey into running 
(she is super speedy by the way clocking a 38:18 10K PR just one year after becoming a mom!), diving back into running and racing after having her baby boy Bryce, why she loves her job, her stint as a model in a commercial for Saucony and of course all about running in the city of Vancouver. 

Steph is so detailed in her awesome recommendations, we promise after this conversation, you will want to spend some quality time running, hiking (side trip to Whistler!), eating and exploring in this beautiful city.
Don't miss this fun conversation!
