Nationals 2018

I was a LITTLE slow starting this week. So last week/weekend was Nationals and by Sunday night I was full out of commish. I've never realized how much a meet like that takes out of you until this year (or I'm just getting old). I will preface this blog with I AM OVERALL HAPPY WITH...

Vacation 2018 pt. 1

Life is good! I write these adventures from the comfort of my single bed in Las Palmas, Spain, so life is good. This "vacay" started with a lil drive to Calgary to see my favorite human, Kathy Griffin. It lived up to every single thing I expected. I dragged Jenn along and Kathy did over...

Provincials 2018

Last meet of the Spring! Sorry that I've been super out of commission the last few weeks; I was busy with Montreal and then Provincials and then I got a phat cold, strep and ear infection that really knocked me on my ass.   Provincials went alright. Again (I say it every time?), it was...

Montreal (2018), Part Two.

RS in the MTL Sunday, after that weekend, I was pooped. Monday, we went for Breakfast at Tutti Frutti. I had never been, and there’s one literally around the corner from my Condo in Edmonton. It was fine. I got Plain Toast and Fresh Fruit – how exotic! We went to Old Montreal for the...

Canada Cup | Montreal, Part One

Another delightful trip to Montreal!   We left early (for me) Wednesday morning. The flight was mad turbulent so I felt sick the whole time. Fab start to the trip. We got there, got the rental cars AND HEADED OUT ON THE TOWN. Just kidding, I found a lil’ Mexican spot around the hotel and...

Second Cup Recap!

Lethbridge Road Trip! We had a delightfully long weekend in Lethbridge. It's daunting to think that we have to go back again this year, sorry Lethbridge. It was a nice city, but it's far and it smells like poop 24/7, so I super can't wait for the whole country to come and complain about it...

Start of the Season!

First Meet of the Year! The first meet of the year is this weekend in Red Deer for Alberta! It will be Saturday, Sunday and Monday (what a way to spend the long weekend!) at the Collicutt Centre in RD. I compete Sunday afternoon and Monday morning. I'm looking forward to getting back into competing;...

Training Update: Tumbling Camp

Non-Stop Tumbling. A friend of ours from the States came down to host a National Tumbling Camp in Alberta for the weekend last weekend. It was jam packed (2 hours, 3 hours and 3 hours) but it was a lot of fun! I hurt my back day 2, but survived just fine! Lot's of fun...

Out + About: Floating!

Floating is the weirdest. So I've been contemplating "Floating" for a while and looking through different recovery things, this seemed to be the next, coolest thing. IT WAS LITERALLY SO WEIRD. I booked it, reluctantly, because I knew I would have a hard time doing nothing for a solid hour (self-diagnosed ADHD). I took the...

Spain Blog: Madrid Adventures!

I slept most of the way to Madrid. We took the shuttle bus to the airport and then cabbed downtown to our AirBnB. The airport to the AirBnB was maybe 20 minutes, so we were surprised. The AirBnB was adorable and kind of kooky. It was the top floor of this nice building. It was...
