M2M Women Who Inspire #IWD2022
Happy International Women’s Day!
From our women coaches to our women athletes, we’re lucky to be surrounded by so many incredible individuals at M2M! In honor of #IWD2022, we wanted to highlight a few of our athletes, coaches and other influential women that inspire us and have positively contributed to the M2M community (the list is endless so we’ll do our best to highlight a few!). To start, we’re looking at some of our very own M2M Athletes.

Plus, a few of our amazing coaches we have the pleasure of working with.
Bri’s journey into athletics is nothing short of meteoritic — coming into the sport after a collegiate volleyball career and almost overnight, winning national medals on the track. Now with a little one on the way, we sat down with Bri to learn more about her incredible journey into athletics, how her relationship with running has changed during her pregnancy, and individuals she looks up to for guidance and inspiration.View More
Coach Chany is one of the amazing women we have the pleasure to work alongside— a 9 time Canadian National team member (7 x Track and Field, 2 x Mountain Running), mom to beautiful 15 month old Olive and currently studying to become an Osteopathic Practitioner. Last year, Chany shared her experience with the ups and downs of pregnancy and her experience returning to running post-birth. Now 15 months postpartum, Chany shares in her own words her experience returning to racing post-birth, the difficult balancing act of being a mom, and exploring her identity postpartum. View More
