WHO
David Schwartz, VP of finance, ALDO.

WHAT
Endurance events: half marathons, marathons, and half Ironman triathlons.

WHEN
“I usually compete in three to four events per year. I have even completed a marathon and two half marathons in the cold month of February!”

WHERE
“Most of the races I have participated in have been in the Montréal and Ottawa regions. In 2014, I completed the 70.3 Ironman triathlon in Mont-Tremblant, Québec, which was an incredibly scenic event.”

WHY
“I started running in 2003 to get back in shape. As a student, I was always very much into competitive sports, but when I started my career, I didn’t prioritize my fitness. Since 2003, I have participated in more than 25 races of varying distances.
