Vancouver Island is absolutely stunning and I’m so grateful to be able to train, race and catch up with friends/family here this weekend. Tomorrow is going to be an exciting morning!! In addition to being @mabrimer98’s super Sherpa, I’m going to toe the line as the swimmer on the ‘Go Sam Go!’ relay team at the 70.3 Victoria Ironman. To Michael, Sam, my teammates and everyone racing tomorrow...have fun and let your body do what you’ve trained it to do, fly on that race course! 😊👊 . . . #racehard #justkeepswimming #swimlikeagirl #triathlon #swimming #triathlete #canadiangirl #nolimits #team #victoria @triathlongold @islandbatik @swiftwicksocks @roka

Today’s breathtaking trail run was one for the soul... | There is something magical about running; after a certain distance, it transcends the body. Then a bit further, it transcends the mind. A bit further yet, and what you have before you, laid bare, is the soul. ~ Kristin Armstrong |

Time to get my 2019 race season started this weekend! I’m excited to see what my body can do at the @2xutriathlonseries in Portarlington racing alongside my @triathlongold squad. | There are no limits to what you can accomplish, except the limits you place on your own thinking. – Brian Tracy | 📸: @trimassageguy

CARMS EM/FM Match day today!! I am beyond grateful that I matched to the University of Manitoba Winnipeg family medicine/emergency medicine 1 year program starting July 2019. A huge thank you to everyone who has supported me in this journey and I am incredibly excited to be a part of this amazing program. | Never give up, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn ~ Harriet Beecher Stowe | . . . #grateful #emergencymedicine #medicine #residency #happy #happydance #excited #winnipeg #universityofmanitoba #canadiangirl

The 2018 Ixtapa CAMTRI Sprint Triathlon American Cup has been one of my favorite and toughest triathlon experiences. The atmosphere created by the local fans and volunteers was amazing and the event itself was top notch in a beautiful setting. My race had so many ups and downs in this heat wave (38 degree Celsius with humidity), especially the battle with the girls for clean water at the swim start which ultimately costed me a bike pack...but I decidedly put out my best effort in every moment regardless of the external challenges and I’m happy with my race. I definitely wasn’t the fastest on the day but I learnt that I’m capable of even more than I previously thought and to me that’s a win! Thank you to all of you for your encouraging words and support, it means the world to me. “Never give up, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn.” ―Harriet Beecher Stowe . . . #nevergiveup #mindovermatter #motivated #no limits #findfaster #swimbikerun #triathlete #canadiangirl #gratitude #skratchlabs

Crushed the brick (bike/run) session today with @mylifeontri! Rode those steep descents with full on speed and in true gieco pig “wee weee weeee” fashion 🤣 (https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=XMTfHbc788Y) It was purely mental toughness that pulled us through the run...of course training was followed by a much deserved Italian gelato treat 🙃 yes 3 scoops!!! We got this 👊👯‍♀️ . . . #twinningiswinning #friends #gratitude #fast #fierce #trainhard #triathlontraining #triathlete #ridelikeagirl #canadiangirl #gelato #capformentor #mallorca #3433spc #skratchlabs #wattieink #findfaster #nolimits

First race in the bag!! I absolutely love racing at this level and against these ladies. They push you to have a near perfect race, where a silly mistake will in a moment take you from the front to the back. On the second leg of the swim, I made a mistake with the current and was trying to play catch up for the rest of the race. I’m proud of myself for giving it my all and even though it was far from the race I wanted to have, there were many positive points to take away along with lessons learned. One of the highlights of the weekend was playing Sherpa and cheerleader for @mabrimer in his first draft legal race! He absolutely crushed the bike!! To all of you…Thank you for your encouraging words. I really appreciate each and every one of your supportive comments! Next up…I’m spending the next couple of days training in Clermont before I head to Sarasota for next weekend’s race (including a mixed relay!). It should be a fun and exciting week! . . . #happy #grateful #family #friends #canadiangirl #canadianwinter #triathlon #bestself #healthylifestyle #funinthesun #swimbikerun #skratchlabs #skratchthesummit
