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!

-31 C Oh My!

My Olympus camera used through the back seat of the Toyota Tundra!  Pretty sweet shot of the Rocky Mountains!  We are packed liked sardines, but have survived the trip so far.  

My youngest boy in the back seat.  He has the greatest lips!  We are so jealous!  He thinks we are teasing him, but man, those lips are just fantastic.

We started our Journey from Comox in the pouring rain (+6 C) and arrived in Kamloops to 20 cms of blowing snow and temperatures dropping to -20 C with the windchill!!!  AAAHhhh!!!  We spent a couple of days visiting friends, family, eating early Christmas dinner, and celebrating Poppa Brian's 60th birthday! The next day, after much deliberation, we decided to venture out into the frigid temperatures and travel through the Rocky Mtn's to Calgary for the next leg of our Journey!  We watched the thermometer drop to -31 C and rumor has it, with the wind chill, it was -45 C.  Thank goodness we were in a truck!
My boys gave us about 30 seconds to shoot a couple of family pics in the snow.  Notice we are not really dressed for the cold temperatures.  We are spoiled on the Island!

For those of you that don't believe I really have a husband!  There he is!!  I had seconds to get this shot.  He really does not like getting his picture taken!
