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!

Martinis and Pedicures... Oh my!

My one last hurrah and only 49 more sleeps!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Kathy and I post mineral soak, exfoliation, and in this pic masking our feet. Yes, there is a hint of green going on there. The products were amazing! That will be the best my feet will look and feel for a long time now.
Not sure if the above picture should be on here... Hopefully Coach doesn't see this. Actually, I was really good. The "Arbonne" and Martini party could have gotten way out of hand, but the athlete in me kept me from loosing control over the alcohol consumption on Friday night. Sarah Seeds had all the "Run Leaders" over for an amazing Arbonne/Martini Party. We were to bring a Martini to share with the recipe and then we were all to taste them and vote on our favorite. Mine was titled, "The Ironmantini"... Of course. I won everyone over in presentation, but it did not win the big prize of the night.
This was my last weekend of sin. As of tonight, I am cut off of wine, chocolate, dairy, and anything else I fall victim to that does not go with the Ironman diet for the next 7 weeks!! Only 49 more sleeps until game time! Watching the race coverage of the Vancouver Half Ironman and the Desert Half in Osoyoos today has given me a boost of energy to make every workout count!
Enough about my training and racing!...
I have to brag about one of my very bestest friends and athlete from Kamloops, Rhonda Eden! She made a come back this year into the Triathlon world like a ROCK STAR!!!! Rhonda's last half was the Oliver Persona Half in 2007 in 40`C weather. It was a grueling race in the heat. Well, today in the Vancouver Half, she rocked that course out there today and I so would have loved to have been at that finish line to give her the biggest hug and kiss!!! 5:42 Personal Best!! She took off well over an hour and a half off her last Half Ironman time and she did it with a huge smile on her face! I wish I had a picture to post of her, but they will be on the LifeSport website soon! I am So! So! So! proud of you Rhonda! Way to go girlfriend! Rumour has it she is going to be around the Penticton area at the end August... Standing in a very famous line up.... Registering for a very special race!!!.... IMC 2010!! Woo Hoo Rhonda, you will love it!
Life Is Simple: Swim-Bike-Run-Eat-Sleep! Cheers!
