I help people feel empowered, strong and energized for their everyday life. I love being a coach, mom, triathlete and outdoor enthusiast!
I truly believe that continued education is the key to success especially in every industry that has anything to do with the human body. Research has come a long way and all of us professionals have to keep up! I am happy to add this certification of knowledge to my repertoire. Thanks @themollygalbraith@thegirlsgonestrong for keeping the doors to education accessible.
If you want to know more about the triathlon camp I attended this past weekend I typed a few words about it! Unfortunately too many words for Instagram. There is a link in my bio that will take you to my blog so you can check it out there :). The weekend was full of joy and tears and I didn't hold back in my story. Let me know what you think and if my story is relatable to you.
This is by far the most precious and sacred thank you card I will ever receive in the mail.
I was fortunate enough to work hard and produce extra breast milk that Anthony didn't need. Sure I could of saved it and the little guy could be drinking it now instead of formula but he is a strong and healthy little man unlike the tiny babies fighting for their lives in the NICU.
After our #dictator who is now a thriving three year old was born at 33 weeks and 6 days and a mere 4 lbs 2 oz he recieved the gift of donar milk. Unfortunately because of a blood transfusion because of complications with that birth I was unable to donate breastmilk at the time but made it my mission to give back this time around.
I am beyond grateful to my husband who helped out extra during the numerous hours of pumping, to my #dictator for his patience(if you ask him pumping is BORING) and for my tenacity to do what was needed to produce all that extra milk.
I had an amazing weekend with @teamtrilifeangie and her Team Trilife. We did 10 great workouts over 4 days and my @4iiiicom heart rate monitor was there with me every stroke, pedal and step of the way. Now I get to look at all the data my @garmin forerunner, 4iiii heart rate monitor and 4iiii power meter collected to help increase my fitness even more! I really can't think of a prettier back drop for all those workouts either!
It isn't everyday that you get to meet social media friends in real life! Many years ago my client and good friend @conniedesousa told me to follow @runner_leana for some triathlon training inspiration. Leanna has never disappointed! I have followed her journey and have been inspired so many times to just keep training and eventually my dream of being an #ironman will happen! Thanks for riding the extra kilometers with me today so I had a buddy!
10 years ago today I made a decision that changed the course of my life indefinitely.
I had a concussion and as I sat there after morning work (because I wasn't smart enough at that point in life to not work when injured) I decided life was too short to not travel. Although I had promised my roommate Shauna I was staying for the winter, I booked my flights back to Australia . As I was booking my flight from Sydney to Perth so I could go back and work on the Price farm, Shauna came home. I hurried through the booking because I hadn't told her yet that I was leaving.
It wasn't until the next day I realized I made a mistake and booked my flight to leave Sydney before I actually arrived in Sydney! I called to have the flight changed and ended up having to overnight in Sydney.
As any good backpacker does... I didn't find accommodation until I landed in Sydney. When I got to the hostel that I decided on based on the size of their advertisement at the airport I was horrified! It was dingy and scary and I was sure I was not going to make it out alive. Let's not forget I was traveling alone!
I had been traveling for 30+ hours and had got lost in a rainstorm in Taipei so I had a shower and then headed to the bank to organize that stuff and went to an internet Cafe to let everyone know I had arrived safe. Smart phones weren't really a thing yet!
When I got back to the hostel there was 2 guys from Calgary in my dorm room and I thought well they are Canadian so hopefully now I won't die in this sketchy place!
It happened to be Derek and his friend Nick.
I left Sydney for Perth the next morning. 6 weeks later those Calgarians were in Perth and came down to the Price farm to visit, I left Perth for Melbourne a few days later. 5 months later I was walking downtown Melbourne and ran into those same 2 Calgarians!
It wasn't long after this run in that Derek and I did some traveling and adventureing together. After a few months of becoming great friends, he in his typical Derek round about way asked me on a date.
Do you see why that decision changed my life forever?
Have you ever made a decision that change your life unknowingly?
Midday break to go for a swim since the rain is holding off. Apparently the portion of the lake I was in is newer than the map ! Thanks to my brother in law for watching #hisroyalcutness while I swam now back to work for me while the little man naps.
