The Secret to Success is Pretty Simple

“Never decide the outcome of a race at any point during the race…just keep going”. Triathlete, Kathryn MacKinnon, hit me hard with this quote during a Queen Pins Halifax fundraising event I attended last Thursday. I keep repeating it to myself and coming back to how important it is because this rings so true forContinue reading “The Secret to Success is Pretty Simple”

Entrepreneurs and athletes: Are you a lone wolf or part of a pack?

My wolf pants from Nominou Designs are my favourite pants in the world. I feel good when I wear them and I’ve come to identify with the wolf too…especially when I had one eye me up this afternoon at a wildlife park. The arctic wolf was pacing back and forth in her enclosure (I assumedContinue reading “Entrepreneurs and athletes: Are you a lone wolf or part of a pack?”

Even as the one in charge, you can’t have it together all the time.

As I’m sitting at the kitchen counter trying to type this out my kids are being animals. This is my circus and those are my monkeys kinda animals. When I’m trying to focus I like calm and it’s not calm in here. At all.

It wasn’t because I was exhausted or hurting that I was dizzy all of a sudden: it wasContinue reading “What got me across the finish line of my first big race”

Why it’s awesome when things don’t go as planned

I’m an event planner and a recovering perfectionist so having things go according to plan is kinda my jam. I’ve done a lot of self-growth work over the last number of years, especially over the last 9 months, and I’m done with jam, (too high in sugar anyway.) Tomorrow is one of my favourite daysContinue reading “Why it’s awesome when things don’t go as planned”

Getting tangled in eel grass. Highway traffic that’s too close for comfort. A few missed training days. There are plenty of reasons for Erin to halt her journey towards the Keji Women’s Triathlon but nothing is going to stop this gal! I checked in with her last night and like always, my conversation with herContinue reading
