January Goal Check-In + 3 for February 2016

For almost as long as this blog has been around, I've been sharing monthly goal check-ins. This is by far one of the biggest things that has kept me accountable over the years, which is why I fully intend to keep them coming. Even if you aren't a blogger and therefore don't have a very public platform [...]

Ironman 70.3 Victoria Training Check In – Part 1

As I was typing the title of this blog post, I got really really excited. If you were reading along last year, you may remember that I did a series of 6 posts in the lead up to my first half Ironman, Challenge Penticton on August 30th. Well my friends, it's time to restart that [...]

15 more big questions to answer in your journal

Many of the self development philosophies and exercises that have become popular over the past couple of years center around cultivating your ideal feeling. When I think about feelings, I also think about emotions. Neuroscientists and psychologists would argue that the two are distinctly different because they originate from different areas of the brain and blah [...]

A reader’s story: Finding happy on the inside

Not long ago I was chatting to a new friend who asked me about what I do for work. If you're a blogger, or if you also pursue a side passion outside of your full time job, you'd probably agree that the answer to this question isn't often a short one. I responded saying that I'm a marketing [...]

2016 Goals and Vision Board: Connect and Do What Matters

Well hello there! Welcome to my annual post all about vision boarding, goals, great ambitions and what's to come for the year ahead. I'm not sure about you, but over the holidays I was thinking a LOT about all of this. It's not that January is particularly magical or anything - it's just a month, and really, any [...]

Mastering a Better Mindset

Isn't it funny how as you grow up, your perspective on things changes dramatically? I remember back in primary school, where my main priorities included ensuring my friends and I got to the cafeteria early at lunch time so we could get 'our table', and walking home fast enough to be in front of the TV [...]

Life Lessons: Where could you add two extra gears?

A lot of the life lessons I've learned have been taught to me through athletics. Those of you who were reading along this summer may remember that the biggest lesson I learned as a 26 year old was patience - patience in training for my half Ironman, in my career, in adjusting to my new city. [...]

October Goal Check-In and 3 for November 2015

October seems to have flown by faster than any month in 2015 so far. One of my friends happened to mention on Sunday that there are only 53 days until Christmas, and while it's been one heck of a year so far I can't quite believe we're almost at the end. The thought of December being [...]

Embracing the Off-Season

One of the biggest things I've learned over the last couple of years is the importance of taking an off-season. When I was in university and in my early 20s, I'd pretty much train hard year-round, no matter if I had races coming up or not. I guess part of me just wanted to be [...]

8 Inspiring TED Talks on Gratitude

Before moving to Vancouver, I lived in Waterloo for almost 10 years. For those that don't know, Waterloo is a medium-sized city about an hour west of Toronto. It's a fairly wealthy, tech-driven place with plenty of parks, green spaces, and character. It's home to two universities, a college, lots of families, and generally, Waterloo [...]
