It was a BIG weekend for Canada’s cross country runner (<- literally, across the country!).
Diabetes should never hold you back, and he’s proving it.
On Friday he hit a major milestone.
According to the Outrun Diabetes Instagram map tag, the 1,000km mark was hit in the rural community of Whycocomagh, Nova Scotia.
How far is 1,000km? Let’s put it into perspective
- CN Tower, Toronto to Times Square, New York is around 760-800 km via I-81/I-90
- Downtown Vancouver to Calgary, Alberta is around 970 km via Trans Canada Highway
- Prince Albert, Saskatchewan to Winnipeg, Manitoba is around 890 km via Trans Canada Highway
All estimates are through Google Maps
Another fun way to look at it from my eyes. Running 1,000km is one of my 10-MONTH Nike Challenge goals.
During the end of last week, Sebastien also wiped off 115 km in 3 days.
Let’s continue to cheer on Sebastien and every other athlete who is getting out there, giving it their all.
