Hi, My name is Danielle Leroux

City Explorer, Runner, Adventurer


Welcome to Wild Coast Tales. Thanks for stopping by. My name is Danielle. I share my love for running and fitness, healthy food (and a few kitchen mishaps), city exploring, hiking, and other adventures on Canada’s wild west coast.

I grew up in Toronto and moved out to Vancouver to attend grad school in 2012. Post-grad I found a job and haven’t left the west coast since (much to my parents’ chagrin).

Living in Vancouver has fuelled my love for climbing mountains, exploring new places in the city and around the beautiful province of BC, eating healthy food, trying new recipes, and running. In November 2015, I ran my first half-marathon and was bit by the running bug. In 2016 I trained and ran my first marathon in May.

Enjoy following along as I attempt new challenges in running, food, and fitness, and continue crossing items off my life bucket list.
