Lots of people ask me why I do what I do. Triathlon training, especially for longer events, is time consuming, tiring and expensive – and lots of people have never experienced the other side of the equation. Everyone has their own experiences, but for me triathlon is a constantly evolving challenge filled with new adventures and an amazing community of athletes. Nothing compares to crossing the finish line of a race you never even thought was possible; an event that took months or years of preparation, and a lot of sacrifice, but ultimately proves that you can do the impossible.
I started running and competing in triathlons in 2005 and since then have finished over 20 sprint and olympic-distance events, 7 half marathons, a full marathon and many other running and cycling events. In 2012 I qualified for Team Canada in duathlon, and competed in the Duathlon World Championships in Ottawa on August 10, 2013. In 2014 I’m tackling my biggest challenge yet: Ironman Canada in Whistler, BC!
