About Me

I am a mother of three very hungry, busy boys. A Wife to a helicopter pilot and my most amazing support and sponsor of my triathlon lifestyle! I am the owner of Perseverance Multisport Coaching in Whistler, BC. I coach athletes competing in short to long course distance triathlons. I started racing triathlon in 2003 in my first sprint distance race and gradually worked my way up to the Ironman level racing. This past July, I completed my 9th Ironman Canada race! In 2009, My goal one day is to qualify for Ironman Hawaii World Championships and show my boys that with a lot of commitment, hard work and determination "Anything is Possible"! I hope that I can instill the love of sport and living life to its fullest every day to my boys and to everyone I am able to share my healthy triathlon lifestyle with!

Kona Ironman World Championships!!!

"I want to do that!"
"365 more days!"...
"No Time Like the Present!"...
"No More Excuses!"...
"Bring on the W40-44 age category!"...
As I was sitting in front of my computer monitor, watching the Ironman World Championships in Kona Hawaii, drooling over the ocean swim, the athletes, the bikes, the palm trees, everything. I came to the conclusion very quickly this morning that this was the last time I wanted to watch this race from my living room! That's it no more doggin it in my training! If I want to get a spot and participate in this race I have to get my big butt off this chair and do something about it!
Yup, nothing like a little "Ironman Live" to get you feeling motivated! I decided to hop on my Compu Trainer while the men and women were on their bikes on the Ironman race course. No I did not go 5+ hours, I went 2+ hours, and tried to maintain my goal race pace of 21.5 miles/hour. I climbed when they climbed and picked up my cadence when they were descending. No problem when you are on a flat surface with a fan and all the luxuries of home.

I think that's Chris Lieto on the bike in second place.

Not the greatest pictures of the Women's overall winner... again!! Chrissy Wellington coming across the finish line and then a group hug with her Mom and Dad! What an inspiration, what an athlete! Chrissy has won every Ironman she has started! Including Kona now, twice! Chrissy started this addicting sport just two years ago, and is one of the sports latest phenom's. Wow, I wish I could run like her!
Chrissy Wellington 31/WPRO
Swim 00:56:20

Congratulation to all the Lifesport athletes that raced today! Lindsey Corbin, you rock! (6th WPRO)
