COVER STORY

Devan Wiebe: Runs Like the Wind by Sarah Gordon

photos by Sandra Steier

Cover model Devan Wiebe has been on the run ever since her elementary school days. Wiebe works part-time at The Run Inn, you may have spotted her sporting fitness attire on their Facebook postings. She grew up in a very athletic household. Wiebe’s sister plays soccer, they both ride horses, her mother ran competitively when she was younger and still likes to run in Pacific Spirit Park. Her mother also practices hot yoga which Wiebe tried a couple of times and found very challenging. Wiebe is a third year commerce student at UBC’s Sauder School of Business where she is specializing in finance. She is the co-captain of the UBC women’s track and field team, which she has run on for the past two years, and has competed in many meets in Canada and the United States. In addition, Wiebe is a member of the Point Grey Track and Field Club.

Last year Wiebe participated in the World Junior Track and Field Championships in Barcelona, Spain. Her racing highlight took place when she ran the 800m where she placed 14th and ran a personal best of 2:05:40. As well, she was on the relay team that ran in the final and came sixth in the world. She says, “It was an amazing experience, especially to have the chance to compete with such talented athletes.” Wiebe is proud to have placed third two consecutive years in the 800m at the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) track and field championships. When asked what she most enjoys about running Wiebe replies, “I love the feeling you gain from being your best and getting faster and faster; how it feels in a race when you know you have that extra gear to go for the win. I love how there are always goals you can work towards and the sense of pride you have when you achieve them.” She is inspired by how running creates a community of people who share a love of the sport. She also loves the diversity that running offers. “It can be so intense like when all you can think about is hitting a standard to qualify for a team – and then the next day I will be going for a chilled out run in the woods with my mom and my dog feeling like I don’t have a care in the world.” Reflecting back on running relay races around the gravel field of Lord Kitchener Elementary, Wiebe credits her mother for supporting her running, and enjoys being able to share a common sport with her. Pacific Spirit Park’s trails happen to be Wiebe’s favourite local run. As for other tips that she is willing to share, Wiebe encourages visiting The Run Inn. She is quick to point out that when it comes to gear, the most important thing is your shoes, and that means the fit and function – not the colour!

ANTI-AGING MEDICAL & LASER CLINIC by Sarah Gordon

photos by Sandra Steier

Kerrisdale’s Anti-Aging Medical & Laser Clinic is a preventative medical and private health care clinic offering personal medical consultations, as well as a range of innovative, non-invasive cosmetic treatments to help you look and feel younger from the inside out.

Dr. Frame grew up and went to medical school in South Africa. He moved to Canada to find a safe and peaceful place to raise his family. He worked in northern Manitoba

Dr. Gidon Frame is the medical director and cosmetic injector who oversees all of the procedures while his wife, Nadine Frame, is the company’s C.E.O. The couple takes pride in their boutique clinic, which is in its tenth year of operation. Assisting Dr. Frame are three laser technicians, a nurse clinician, a receptionist, and Nadine Frame who also does consultations. They describe Anti-Aging Medical & Laser Clinic as a place of trust, respect and care. “Everyone who works here is caring and passionate about what they do, and will go the extra mile to assist patients and make them feel comfortable.” They stress the importance of patient follow up, and that clients have a complete understanding of options available to them.

in the cold and snow before relocating to Vancouver where he built his original practice in Burnaby. Certified by the American Board of Anti-Aging and Regenerative Medicine, along with the North American Menopause Society, Dr. Frame enjoys helping people make their face, body and mind “shine.” In addition to time spent at his busy clinic, Dr. Frame is also is a Clinical Assistant Professor at UBC. He guides menopausal women as a North American Menopause Society Certified Practitioner and has more than a decade of experience providing male hormone replacement. Cosmetic procedures complement Dr. Frame’s belief that a patient’s image should reflect their overall well being. His interest in improved looks includes injectables, lasers, ultrasound fat reduction and face shaping. He appreciates that aging can be difficult for some people. He says, “Through cosmetic procedures we achieve a look of relaxation, rejuvenation and health. We are avoiding a fake, plastic look and we are avoiding an overdone look. Subtle is better than dramatic. Others will notice that they look better, but they shouldn’t see what they have done.” Male and female clients of a wide age range enjoy their services. Skin care changes over time, and all of these life changes are taken into account, ranging from acne, to preventative aging treatments, facials, and fillers. As we mature the skin reveals the most obvious signs of aging. Dr. Frame uses the latest non-surgical technology, Fraxel Dual Restore, along with Thermage CPT treatments for skin tightening. Botox is used for the controlled reduction of wrinkles along with dermal fillers such as Juvederm and

Restylane. The IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) and Fraxel Laser provide improvement of sun damage, acne scars, texture, tone and radiance. How have anti-aging treatments evolved since the clinic opened in 2003? There have been huge innovations in the use of non-invasive lasers to repair and optimize skin tone and texture and stimulate skin rejuvenation. Fillers have been expanded and can be used in combination to rebuild the foundation of the face, replace volume and smooth with natural looking results. The most common treatments are Botox and fillers for the aging face. Anti-Aging Medical & Laser Clinic’s comprehensive website features video footage showing patients undergoing treatment to help understand firsthand some of the procedures and options available.

In addition to offering cosmetic procedures, the facility is a preventative medical and health care clinic, which offers medical consultations. Dr. Frame says, “Many men are uncomfortable speaking about fatigue or loss of libido, or just getting their medical tests done.” Through exams and testing to assess hormonal imbalances, menopause and andropause, Dr. Frame addresses lack of energy, decreased libido and mood, muscle wasting, and increased fat that can accompany male and female aging.

The clinic also offers private preventative medical exams, providing patients with a comprehensive consultation to identify your personal and family risk of cancer, dementia or osteoporosis. Dr. Frame can plan your medication, supplements, and lifestyles changes to keep you healthy for as long as possible. If you are seeking expedited screening, MRI, CT or blood tests, he can help you access the necessary services. Dr. Frame lives in Kerrisdale with his wife and their three children. They enjoy cycling, running, skiing and swimming in the ocean, in addition to good food, travel and spending time with friends. Dr. Frame’s philanthropic endeavours include raising money annually and riding the Ride to Conquer Cancer to Seattle, and offering support

THE RUN INN

by Sarah Gordon photos by Sandra Steier Have you heard the news? The Run Inn recently moved a hop, skip, and a jump across West 41st Avenue to its new home next to BCAA. The store is outfitted with Nike displays, a company that The Run Inn is excited to be partnering with to promote the shop’s top selling line.

training (dual purpose for running and trips to the gym), running, walking, track and field, soccer and rugby. In addition they offer some court shoes and seasonal sandals and slides.

Founded in 1992, The Run Inn specializes in footwear and apparel with two locations to serve its customers, one in Kerrisdale and a second shop in Tsawwassen which opened in 1998. Owners Chris Cole, Steve Nobbs and Kevin Ridley have all been with the business since its inception. Cole works at the Kerrisdale shop; Nobbs splits his time between the two locations, while Ridley spends his time at the Tsawwassen store. The partners decided to shift The Run Inn to its new Kerrisdale location, feeling it was a better space to showcase Nike products, which happen to be the best selling running apparel brand in the fitness business. The new space is aesthetically pleasing with the use of contemporary neutral colours (white, black and gray), track lighting, and an impressive concrete wall showcasing a vast range of footwear. The Run Inn sells shoes designed for cross

18

September 1 - November 15, 2013

• www.KerrisdaleInsider.com


Adidas, Asics, Brooks, Mizuno, New Balance and Nike are the primary brands sold, with a selection available for both children and adults.

To keep your energy levels fired up you will find an assortment of nutrition products, along with thirst quenching hydration systems and water bottles.

Cole says, “The Run Inn is committed to providing the service of fitting footwear. Different running shoes are made to accommodate various foot types and people’s biomechanics. Only a specialty shop like The Run Inn can address this.”

As a runner I was eager to learn about some of the bells and whistles to enhance a run. Smith pointed out the SPIbelt is a must have. This stretchable product straps on around the waist like a fanny pack, however this invention is fashionable, sleek, expandable, secure, does not bounce and can hold a smart phone, keys, money, ID, and even a passport.

In addition to the wall of shoes there is an array of clothing (primarily Nike with some Lija, Moving Comfort, Sugoi and Patagonia) and workout accessories. Staff member Tim Smith is extremely knowledgeable about all of the products and was kind enough to give me a complete tour of the shop. An assortment of sports watches, pedometers, GPS devices, and heart rate monitors will help you keep track of your performance and keep you shooting for your next personal best. Running socks are an essential part of one’s fitness gear. The shop offers Belega, Nike, and the Rolls Royce of socks, Thorlo, with padding which has been clinically shown to reduce blisters, foot pain, pressures and moisture. For those who need a little extra support, Superfeet insoles are sold.

The second item that caught my fancy was the Saucony USB LED light. The light is visible from over 300 feet and can be connected either to a key ring or a piece of clothing. This is a great rechargeable light for those who pound the pavements in the dark. If you enjoy listening to music while exercising, Yurbuds are designed to stay in place, they are sweat resistant, and allow ambient noise through so that you remain aware of your surroundings. The Run Inn believes in a strong community and is committed to giving back. The annual Run Inn The Woods fundraiser benefits the BC Cancer Foundation. Over the past 15 years this event has raised over $100,00.

Places I’ll Remember by Sarah Gordon The song “In My Life” by The Beatles is playing on the turntable inside my head.

“There are places I'll remember
 All my life though some have changed
 Some forever not for better
 Some have gone and some remain“ My family and I recently went camping at Golden Ears Provincial Park. While the park was unknown territory to them, for me it was like prying open a time capsule. I have visited Golden Ears numerous times, however my fondest memories date back to when I was 13 years old. I was on the cusp of big changes as I was waving goodbye to a familiar routine and was setting off for high school in September. To bid summer farewell my brother and I were allowed to invite some school friends to join our family on a camping trip in mid-August. We spent a number of carefree days jumping off rocks into the clear jade green water of Gold Creek. One evening we abandoned our tents and lined up our sleeping bags in a row, resembling sardines in a tin can, where we fell asleep after watching a myriad of meteors race across the sky. Fast forward to the present. I was extremely eager to show my children and husband my childhood stomping ground that, as time has a way of doing, had reached mythical proportions in my head. While my family kindly supported me in this quest to retrace

my past they were very much grounded in the present, whereas I felt caught in the Twilight Zone. En route through the campground we encountered a park host who told us that the Gold Creek trail had fallen into a state of disrepair since I last ventured down it, and warned us that it would be an undertaking to reach our destination. Determined to find the swimming hole we set off, and when we finally located the trail it was true, the path was unrecognizable. Fortunately we spotted four young boys up ahead accompanied by a mother tagging behind in hot pursuit. Wishing that we had machetes to cut back the vegetation, combined with watching our footing closely due to abundant roots and loose rocks, we joined the parade. When we reached the creek the child in me watched with envy as the boys plunged off the high rocks into the glacial water, while at the same time my thoughts drifted to Acapulco cliff divers, and if necessary, just how quickly could we get medical assistance down the beaten up path that was out of cellular service range? After a few wonderful days spent floating on inner tubes in Alouette Lake, listening to night owls hoot, sitting around blazing campfires and overdosing on S’mores, we packed up and began our journey home. A craving for ice cream warranted a stop in historic Cloverdale, however we could not locate a store that fit the bill. We spotted an older gentleman who was staring pensively at a building and approached him to get advice. In a nostalgic fog he looked through us and said that he had lived here a long time ago but wouldn’t have a clue where to find anything anymore. I felt a sense of kinship with this fellow, having just emerged from “places I’ll remember all my life though some have changed.” To quote American author Thomas Wolfe “you can’t go home again” yet cherished memories that one can dredge up by revisiting past stomping grounds come a close second.

FALL FASHION FOCUS:

STYLIST MICHELLE ADDISON’S TOP FIVE by Michelle Addison

photos by Kyrani Kanavaros

Five pieces to lose from your wardrobe. Five pieces to hold onto. Five pieces to add for an instant wardrobe update.

Keep:

Lose:

Skinny jeans Leather pants Leopard print anything Biker jackets Black and white prints

Boot cut jeans Aritzia blazer with rolled up sleeves Tunics and leggings Small shoulder purses Moccasins

Add: Sheer shirts Tailored blazers Sleek ankle boots Cobalt blue accessories Fall is my favourite time of year. I love it all, the coats, the boots, the sweaters. The fall runways were full of amazing fashion, from Philip Lim 3.1 to Proenza Schouler, it was evident that prints had taken precedent and leather details were everywhere. Part of my job as a stylist is to get to know my client’s lifestyle and find a personal style that works for them and their individual needs. From stay at home moms, to busy CEO’s, or artists with endless events, everyone wants a wardrobe that is easy, comfortable and stylish. I begin with wardrobe cleansing. I go through a wardrobe and see what works and what does not. Working alongside my client we eliminate items that are dated, too small, and never coming back in style. They try on pieces we like but may need changes, such as hemming, or perhaps we reinvent the piece

altogether. When we are finished, we start planning what we will need to update the wardrobe, build a shopping list, and then comes the fun part, we go shopping! I see so many lovely items that people really want to keep but sadly must go as they have seen their day. I also see plenty of great items that should definitely not be purged. Below are my top wardrobe items to lose, keep and add.

LOSE: Boot cut jeans Nothing screams dated more than a boot cut jean. Skinny jeans work for 99% of all people and will likely look better on you than boot cut.

Your boyfriend blazer with the sleeves rolled up It is time to let this go. I love Aritzia, but this blazer must have been a big seller because everyone has one. There are better blazers to roll the sleeves up on. Trust me.

Sweater tunics and leggings I will admit that there could be exceptions to this rule, while this look was cool once, it has seen its day. Therefore, no leggings except at the gym.

Small shoulder purses Some clients tell me that they use these instead of a clutch. I will promptly say that they should get a clutch, and never wear a fake. Ever.

Moccasins These were fun for a while, and cute with the bohemian aesthetic, but not this year.

KEEP: Skinny jeans These have not gone out of style for a reason, they look so good with the boot trend: ankle booties, heels, knee high boots, riding boots the list goes on endlessly. Invest in a good pair and get some affordable trendier ones. The key trend colour this season is distressed black.

Leather pants I convinced many of my clients last year to invest in a leather skinny pant and across the board everyone was a believer. Leather is hot again this year so pull out your leather pants or perhaps get a different colour.

Leopard print anything I love this trend, it appeals to my inner rocker child. Leopard details are everywhere this season, from scarves, to jackets, to pants. Keep in mind the idea of less is more. Head to toe leopard print is probably best for Halloween.

Biker jackets This is another of my favourite trends. Isabel Marant designed a great one last season and this year Philip Lim revamps the trend with a terrific biker jacket. This fall you will find every designer doing a version of the jacket, and you'll be sure to find one that works for you.

Black and white prints Polka dots, abstract, stripes‌these are always easy to dig up in your closet and by adding a camel colour, or cobalt blue will enhance a contrast. This is where you could rock the cobalt clutch!

ADD: Sheer shirts These are going to be big this fall worn for

work with a camisole or tank underneath and in the evening if you dare…a lace bra.

Sleek tailored blazers Back again with a vengeance, this is my number one note to all women: aquiring a great tailored blazer is worth the money. If you don't like the stiffness of a blazer, or if it doesn't suit your lifestyle it is worth checking out some of the other blazer-like coats with some stretch. These coats are great for our mild Vancouver weather.

Sleek ankle boots I love my chunky ankle boots, but this year I will be enhancing my wardrobe with another option for a sleeker more ladylike cut of an ankle boot. These will look great with my leather pants!

Colourful bag Once you get a basic black bag you can try a great cobalt or orange bag to liven up your outfits. Kerrisdale offers many places to shop for these essentials. If you still are confused and need a little lift in the wardrobe department you can always call a stylist.
