Elite Canada Update!

One + done!   My first meet of the year is now over! Elite Canada happened this weekend in Calgary. Honestly, it wasn't great. My prelims were ok... definitely not where I want them to be or where I was training them, but that happens. Finals were also ok... First Finals pass was fine -...

April Life Update | Elite Canada, Portugal, Projects!

Well, it's officially competition season!   Part of me feels like I haven't competed in forever (since November), but most of me is like 'where did this break go?'. Last year I started competing in February and competed almost every month (except June) until November. I do like to compete, and I find I am...

RELAY FOR LIFE | My Friend Tamara!

I really don't know where to start with this one! Some of you may know, some may not, but my friend Tamara has been diagnosed with Stage 4 Metastatic Melanoma. Now, it's been a long road to this point, and I will share some of it briefly from my perspective, but I urge you to...

My Lent for the Non-Religious!

It's me, I'm back.   As someone who went to Catholic School for 13 years, and as a self-identified 'fallen-Catholic', I still like the idea of the Lent! I never totally understood the purpose of Lent as a child. My interpretation of it was always 'Jesus gave so much (I know there's more to the...

2019 Season!

2019 is upon us, even though I lost most of January!   Last year I posted a little breakdown of how the year was going to go down - how competitions work, what was on the horizon, etc. and people seemed to like it, so I figured I could do a lil’ update! Provincial Cups...

Where have I been? | JANUARY UPDATE

There was a point where I was on top of my shit at the start of the year. There were posts planned, lot's of ideas; I was even ahead on writing blog posts... has literally never happened in the 5+ years I've been writing on this blog. Anyways, I had started writing little updates every...

My Favorite Athletes!

Start 2019 with some inspo! Many athletes have come on and off my favorites list, but here are some of my favorite legends and some newbies. I mean, we all love Serena Williams, shes the GOAT, we all love Simone Biles, also the GOAT, so I didn’t include them. I tried to pick people that...

2018 Recap | My Christmas Card?

This is basically my Christmas Card, but don't expect a poem and don't check the mail. Last year started in the same place I am writing this bad boy from - the Grandest of Prairies. This month (December) has been a little nuts. I travelled a lot this Fall and December seemed busy, although I...

Salute to Excellence

Last week, myself and some other Phoenix athletes, attended the Salute to Excellence Awards at City Hall. I've been a few times, but this year was extra special! I received two awards - one for Pan Ams this year in Peru (Team Silver), as well as Nationals (Team Gold). Trish also received the Citation Award...
