About Amy

A contributor to both Canada Running Series and iRun magazine, Amy’s writing has also notably been featured in the Telegram (St. John’s) and the Globe and Mail. She is a graduate of Memorial University of Newfoundland, and is currently working toward a masters degree while training for her next marathon. You can follow her running and ramblings on Twitter.
