How do you sum up the last couple of years in one small post? Having Coach Meg as a part of the Canuck community for the last 4 years has been quite an adventure full of many ups and downs, and a tonne of fun! If you have been lucky enough to participate in one of her classes, or sweat along side her in a WOD, Meg's warm smile, and caring words always make you feel welcome! It takes a lot of different qualities to be a great coach. Not just a good eye, or good technical knowledge. Or good people skills, or a passion for the craft, or compassion for your clients. It takes all those things and more. Much more. It is difficult to find great Coaches. Meg is one of them.
I remember a tall skinny volleyball player walking into the box for the first time interested in CrossFit. She had been a part of a box in Oshawa while she was at school, and wanted to continue her fitness journey in a new box. Quickly, Meg became a staple in the Canuck classes....and a big part of our community! It was not long before Meg decided that she wanted to give back to her Canuck community, and started to work towards becoming a coach.....at that time, we jumped at the opportunity to add her to our team....I couldnt think of a better fit!
We are used to watching Coach Meg come and go......she has been bit by the travel bug many times, and we always look forward to hearing about her worldly travels! A couple of months ago, she realized that this quest for adventure would lead her away from Toronto, and out to BC......this time not for a visit, but to lay down new roots! In a couple of weeks, she will pack up her Jeep with Taco in toe, and embark on the unknown! An adventure many of us have dreamed about....but never had the courage to actually do!
It is certainly with mixed emotions that we say goodbye to Coach Meg and Taco! We know that the universe sending her out to Vancouver, and she needs to follow her heart! We love her and will miss her dearly. Home is never that far away......Home is Canuck!
Please, lets all wish Coach Meg a huge farewell and goodluck on her newest adventure! Let's give Big Booty Judy one last go!
