Favourite Physical Activity: Hockey and running

Message to AMA Youth Run Club Participants: Running can be such a great life long physical and social activity that can connect you to a group of amazing people; be proud of yourself for starting this journey early. Two messages I remind my own team daily are challenge yourself to be the best version of you everyday, and what got you here won't get you there.
