My annual Rocks!!! Half is in the books for 2022. Last year I ran the half for Steve and the 10k for Lise. This year I ran two half’s, solo for the first one and a trail half with my running partner Bean for the second. I could hear Steve’s words as I finished my solo race. He would have been pleased. Steve was always brutally honest with me post races, and I valued this immensely. I channeled Lise’s incredible gift for empathy in Bean’s race, making it a fun one for her. Lots of stops to jump in the lakes and treats along the way.
Thinking of Vince Perdue, as always. Braving each day, lacing up your shoes and spending time on the trails. May those trails continue to heal.

Ottawa Spartan Super 10K & Sprint 5K Weekend

Calabogie, Ontario, CA

19 members of Apex Warrior went down to Calabogie peaks, juts outside of Ottawa for a weekend of obstacle racing. It was my first Spartan race. Most of us did the 10km on Saturday and the 5km on Sunday.
I wasn’t prepared for the massive hill but with my ninja and Spartan training, I was still able to secure 3rd place in my division for both races.
It was a very memorable weekend filled with love, laughter and amazing athletes whom I’m lucky enough to call my friends
