HOME PROVINCE/STATE and COUNTRY:
NUMBER OF YEARS DOING YOUR SPORT:
8 years Classic Skiing, 1 year as a "serious" Runner
Your main 2018-2019 challenge is:
Eiger Ultra Trail Run Race 2018 Switzerland
2017 WAS AWESOME BECAUSE:
Completed my first Running Stage Race in Golden and had amazing races in Switzerland at the Nordic World Masters Cup. Also had a fun Honeymoon with Ken and LOST of fun with my 10 year old daughter, Kaya.
YOU ARE MOST PROUD OF:
Persevering through 30K Classic race at World Masters in the RAIN without the proper skis or wax! I didn't even want to start the race, but I did and completed the required 2 laps. I was proud of myself for not giving up and staying tough! I am also proud to have survived the Golden Ultra! It was my first stage race and I have always been fearful of Ultras. I trained hard and stood in the start line with excitement instead of nerves! Proud to have that race under my belt!
Number One Tip for Success:
Hire a great Coach who understands your goals and your lifestyle (work, family commitments). Train consistently and have a support system around you - people who are positive, inspiring, and motivating.
