In honour of Mother’s day, I wanted to share some of my favourite moments I’ve had with my Mom. This photo was taken in October of 2006, when my mother and I went on a backpacking trip through France and Italy. I still can’t believe she went backpacking, and neither can my Dad. Above, we were sitting at a little restaurant on the ocean in … Continue reading Happy Mother’s Day, Momsie
If you’ve been reading, you probably know that my family – my mother, my two brothers, Jordan and Wesley, and I all ran the Vancouver Sun Run on April 19, 2009. We challenged each other to the race, but also to raise the most money for charity. After completing the run, SatoCanada awarded Wes with a trophy for raising the most for his charity. Also, … Continue reading Our Sun Run Interview with Erin Cebula from Global
Well, it’s finally all over and done with. At the time of the start of the race, Wes was our leader in pledges at $770 for the Children’s Miracle Network, and still waiting for one more cheque. Jordan had about $600 for BC Cancer, and I had raised $680 for Wheels in Motion. By the end of day Sunday, though, Jordan had $885 worth of … Continue reading The Behan Family Sun Run Results
This is it. Sunday, April 19, 2009 is the 25th Annual Vancouver Sun Run. I am running, along with my mother, my brothers Wesley and Jordan, and I think my friend Emily might even come out for it. I’m also hoping my sister-in-law Alex will come out to cheer us on, and maybe snap a photo or two??? If you’ve been keeping up with my … Continue reading Are we ready for the Sun Run?

On Saturday, Jordan, Wes, and I met at Wes’ place in Burnaby near Metrotown, so a photographer from the Burnaby Newsleader could take our photo. It was horrible rainy weather and we had to take the photos outside, decked out in our running gear. I hope that they turn out! The week previous, each of us were interviewed by reporter Heather Gardiner, because she was … Continue reading The Behan’s are making the Newspaper
The charities for the “Behan Sibling Sun Run Challenge” have been chosen. If you look at two of my previous posts, you’ll understand what I am talking about. In short, my brothers and I are competing in the Vancouver Sun Run, but we are also competing to see who can raise the most amount of money for charity before the day of the race (April … Continue reading Support the Charities in our Challenge
In reponse to the positive feedback we’ve been receiving, we’ve decided to up the stakes a little in our Behan Sibling Sun Run challenge. Sato Canada (@SatoCanada on Twitter) has offered to award a prize package to the “winner” of our challenge, but now the “winner” will be the person who raises the most money toward the charity of their choice! This way, everyone wins … Continue reading The Challenge has Changed..
Well, it was easier than I thought. All I had to do was publicly challenge my brothers on Twitter to do the Vancouver Sun Run with me (and my Mom, who will be doing her 17th Sun Run or something ridiculous), and, well.. it was just THAT easy! Here’s a look at our Twitter conversation yesterday (February 11, 2009) in chronological order: janismary: I just … Continue reading The Behan Siblings Sun Run Challenge
