Pulled out the balance beams for a fun session with my youngest client today, the 6 year old inspired me to do a little bit of my own balance work before the #spartan race this weekend! 😁😁😁 getting really excited now!! #aroo

I can't believe it has already been 2 weeks since we rode to Conquer Cancer. It was a wet and cold weekend but it was amazing and soooo worth it!! Only 50 weeks till next year's ride and I can't wait 😁 #fuckcancer #cyclingrocks .

Weekends are about escaping into nature! #beautifulbc

#spartantraining = my happy place! I like triathlons but I LOVE obstacle races. Spartan Vancouver just under a month away!

Once again had a blast during my favorite weekend of the year, The Ride to Conquer Cancer. 200 km over 2 days of riding in the rain and cold didn't dampen our spirits as we kept those that have fought and lost, fought and won or are STILL fighting this horrible disease in our minds!! I'm so proud of our mighty little @team.adrenaline.yvr and so thankful to our donors and supporters for making this possible and contributing to the $10.6 million in this fight! #fuckcancer

First mountain biking adventure brought me here!!!! I could get used to this!!! #cyclingrocks

Oh I needed this! A nice recharge away from the city and people! Only a week before the next hike 😊

#fbf to this spectacular display of athleticism by me! πŸ˜† Am I the only one that has never learned how to do a cartwheel? #beautifulbc

Oh the weights feel sooooo goooood! The next couple months will be all about #spartantraining and biking! πŸ‘πŸ€—

So this is what failure looks like at an Ironman event...they treat you like a freakin' rock star even when you feel like a complete failure. .

I felt great that morning, had a good warm up swim, wasn't terrified of the water, I was sure I had it......and then I didn't! .
.
.
About 150 meters in I panicked, I knew that might happen given my irrational fear of water and it did. I hung on to a paddle board with an amazing woman on it, she helped me catch my breath after my chest constricted on me and made me continue. With just under half way to the finish I had 33 min left, I felt optimistic and still had gas left in the tank but you know what happens once you have a panic attack? ...your chest and your breathing don't go back to normal for a while so before the end of the race I had a couple more little ones....it was hard to breathe...
.
.
With about 150 left, with the finish in my sights I could hear the commentator guy on the shore count down the time I had left, the women and men in the kayaks and on the paddle boards were yelling at me to swim hard and and I tried but in the end I came up short...about 1 min and 25 sec too slow. .

I am absolutely heart broken that I didnt complete this race, the bike was guna be amazing and the run would have been a neat test of my training and conditioning. What I am proud of is that I FINISHED the swim, I completed the one piece of this race that I had doubts about, just not fast enough.

I will try again.
