Power Yoga Canada

Lindsay Holmes

Impact Nutrition

Growing up, Lindsay was always involved in different sports and activities but never counted running as one of them. Following her return home after graduating from university, Lindsay’s dad decided to sign her up for a half-marathon running clinic at the local Running Room. He had always been an avid runner and thought his daughter would make a good running partner for his next race. Four months later, Lindsay and her dad crossed the finish line of the Ottawa half-marathon hand-in-hand. From that point on she was hooked. Lindsay completed her first full-marathon the following year and continues to run races with her dad, as well as her sister and the running friends she has made along the way.
