I can’t believe its been nearly a month since I earned my title! Time certainly flies when you are busy! A couple weeks ago I wrote a post summarizing the pageant-related activities I was doing throughout the week. And so, I have decided to do another post, where I will be focusing on my new article in the paper, gown-shopping, and attending the Johnny Miles Running Event!
On Tuesday, I had a local reporter come by to interview me about my new title. We discussed how I found out about the pageant, my plans to make the most of my platform, and the national Miss Teenage Canada competition I will be attending this summer in Toronto. A couple days later, the article was published in the Truro Daily News, and I have to say, it is really well-written and will hopefully raise more awareness on my title and the pageant.
Another thing that I did during the week was search for the perfect evening gown for the final night! There is a lovely boutique in my town called Elegant Steps, it is where many local girls go to get their prom dresses. I spent Saturday morning trying on some of their selections, and of course, I just had to take some pictures!
I even chose an evening gown for Toronto, but alas, my dress selection will remain a secret until nationals 😉
After that, I did some more shopping for outfits and shoes to bring to Toronto. Below are some pictures of the outfits that I purchased!
Last of all, on Sunday I went out to attend the Johnny Miles Running Event in New Glasgow. It has become a tradition for our family and many other Nova Scotians alike. Participants can choose to run in a 5k race, a 10k, a half-marathon or a full-marathon. The reason the race is so important to many people is because “Johnny Miles” was a well-known local runner in the 1920s who won the Boston Marathon not once, but twice! As a former runner myself, I know that taking the initiative to signup for a race takes courage and guts, especially if it is something you have never done before. Many people use races as an incentive to work hard and reach their fitness goals, some love the exhilaration they get from the sport, and others do it just for fun! Regardless of all that, I’m so proud of everyone who took part and came out for a day of fresh air, exercise, and Father’s Day fun!
I hope you enjoyed this blog post as much as I loved writing it! Ever since the moment I found out that I would be crowned Miss Teenage Nova Scotia, my life completely changed for the better. It’s only been one month, but already, the amazing memories made during that time period will stay with me forever. The national pageant is only 49 days away, and I can’t wait to see what new adventures I will discover as a Miss Teenage Canada delegate!
