What Inspires And Motivates Me
All the exceptionally talented women in our group inspire me.
My Favourite Road Race
It is most definitely Around the Bay. We are so lucky to have this race practically in our backyard.
My Secret Weapon/Ritual/Lucky Charm That I Use At Each Race
My ritual for IRONMAN racing is an armband I wear for remembrance of my niece Sydney. When it gets tough on the course she helps me through, always.
My Goal For The 2012/2013 Fundraising Challenge
Her 2012 goal was to race IRONMAN Wisconsin on Sunday, September 9 2012, which she completed in a time of 13:57:01, ranking 5 overall in her division!
In 2013 her goal is to represent Canada at the ITU Long Distance Triathlon World Championships in Belfort, France on June 1, 2013.
My Biggest Challenge
My biggest challenge in my IRONDame Journey was getting my strength back after getting knocked off my bike in IRONMAN Florida in 2010. I’m healed and ready to go again.
