Triathlon World Championships

4 years ago, I began a journey. 

4 years ago, I had never run a 5k, had never been on a road bike, and had never swam in open water. I was 30 lbs. overweight, and thought that people who called themselves "runners" were really just crazy people. I felt that was something I could never do. I wasn't built like those people. 

One day, out of the blue, I decided to do a crazy thing. I decided to sign up for the SheRox Sprint Triathlon in San Diego. I was just going to finish the darn thing. 

So, in May of 2012, I started to train. And in September, I finished that race. 

Since then I have raced in 15 races and spent hundreds of dollars a month on coaching, equipment, food, travel and race fees. 

And in 2014, something unreal happened.  I had the honour of racing for Team Canada at the World Championships in Edmonton. 

Along the way, I have been inspired by some amazing people. And I am so grateful to them. And I hope that I have been able to inspire others through my journey. 

Triathlon isn't a sport that comes cheaply. I know that I will never make money racing. And I know that a large portion of my income will continue to support my racing. But I am hoping that you will be willing to support me in my journey toward the podium in 2015. 

If there is something I can do in return, such as displaying your logo on my race suit, or wearing your gear, or promoting you on Facebook - send me a note, and let's chat. I am grateful for whatever support you can provide. Let's get creative. 

I appreciate your love and your support. Any amount is appreciated - be it $5 or $500.

Here's a breakdown of how the funds will be spent. If you have any questions, please know that I happy to answer them.
