Welcome to Awesome Run

Hi there!

I see you stumbled upon Awesome Run. I’m so happy to have you. Awesome Run is a home for aspiring and beginner runners (and sometimes, elite eaters) which is exactly the category I fall into. Here, I hope you will seek and find motivation to keep running, reasons for doing it in the first place, and hopefully some yummy recipes along the way.


Maybe you want to know why I started running and as I suppose that is only fair, here it is:


I started running because I was broke, mildly depressed and totally unsure of where my life was going. I’m still totally unsure of where my life is going, somewhat less broke and no longer depressed, I call that a success.


I had just quit my job, and was about to return to the same job after a period of negotiation, when I felt that I needed something. You know the feeling: whatever is going on right now wasn’t cutting it, and I felt an itch to change my life. If truth be told, I woke up one morning after feeling particularly depressed, and decided that I was done feeling that way, forever. I wasn’t happy with how things were going and I was ready. I was going to make a change.

I hopped on meetups.com and found that a FREE (I mentioned I was broke, right?) couch to 5k clinic was happening the next day, and runners (ha!) of all abilities were welcome. It was being hosted by Lole, a Montreal-based athletic wear store, in the swanky downtown neighbourhood of Toronto called Yorkville. Even if it was an attempt to get me to buy things – which I later did, quite happily – it seemed a fair deal. So I went.


There I met someone that would change my life. She was the coach of the couch to 5k clinic, and remains a valued friend to this day. The club started out running for 1 minute and walking for 1 minute. Almost everyone there was in the same boat as me: broke, in search of something and physically inactive. Although it wasn’t officially part of the description of the club, the more I talked to the participants, the more I noticed a common theme. We were all looking for that missing piece, and had decided that if it couldn’t be found else where – not in our jobs, or friends, our significant others – that we would find it ourselves. For some reason, we had all decided that running could help us.


I could barely do the 1 minute of running that first day, but I survived thanks in no small part to my fantastic run coach. She set a standard for coaching that I keep to this day – positive, unrelenting and most of all, grounded in a strong sense of you can do it. It was just what I, a depressed 20 something with no idea of where my life was headed, needed. I’m not sure if she knows just how much she did for me. I hope she does now.


Each meeting, we progressed little by little. Eventually, I was running for 5 whole minutes in a row. At the end of the 8 week program, I had a new group of friends, the ability to run 10 minutes at a time, and a PR for 5k set at a whooping 45 minutes. I knew this was about 15 minutes longer than what many consider to be acceptable, but I didn’t care. I had done it. That was all that mattered. I still think that is all that matters.


I skipped past the 5k race sign up, and went straight for the 10k. I finished that first 10k with a time of 1:14 minutes – 14 minutes longer than my lofty goal of 1 hr. But I finished.


Since then, I have done several more races, including a half marathon. I intend to keep running because it really is awesome. Running gives me so much of what I never had before – an escape, a stress reliever, a journey, a goal, a built-in community, self-reliance and that thing I was searching for, and still am, – myself.


Welcome to Awesome Run.

    Solitariness could again be overridden near the admin based on his judgment tear someone off a strip a requested weighing the command of solitariness against other concerns,cours ethereum or at the behest of his superiors.

    FCFF as discussed in group refers to retinue valuation. So in that frame of reference you exact the total FCFF of the undiminished company (which is surely the sum of each asset’s FCFF, but you are getting FCFF remote financial statements as opposed to each asset’s P&L) and then you affix DCF to cours ethereum nettle TEV, minus net in arrears, etc. If you denial I said we generally don’t like FCFE because of the ability to play on your gain borrowings and so, alter the value arbitrarily. Be that as it may, in the occurrence of project wealth (power plants and mines for definite), the difficulties changes (amortization) is in the main predetermined and doesn’t shift, so the capability faculty to tamper with the numbers is not there.

    I reckon you may have missed my at issue 5 (you answered 4b). As an investor, why don’t we be the current genealogy price of Costco to its endorse conversion price of $22 (per 10-K) exchange for conversion outcome making? Isn’t that how you would deal with int-bearing debt? Is it because we are dealing with a zero-coupon bond? The practice that cours ethereum i’m annoying to make have of it is that It seems there is a varying amount of shares that would be issued upon conversion, and that cut number is determined next to the PV of the principal. While that may be, I appease don’t hear of why we don’t do a head up stock evaluate to conversion cost match (in this instance Costco’s current penalty is understandably greater than its conversion price of $22)
