Why I Became an IRONDame

I became an IRONDame to support my friend Kim in her goal to make a difference in the lives of those battling cancer.

How Long I’ve Been an IRONDame

I have been an “original” IRONDame since the day six of us swooped in with pink feather boas to take Kim away for a retreat weekend that changed all of our lives.

Top 10 Songs to Work Out To

I like to switch it up but anything U2 is good.
Most inspirational song for me to run to would have to be Melissa Etheridge’s I Run For Life.
One of Kim’s all time favorites, Great Big Sea’s Ordinary Day. Great song to finish an Ironman!

My Favourite Race

Guelph Lake because they have excellent picnic facilities in the transition zone.
