Then and Now

THEN-I was happy for my life....NOW-I enjoy living my life!

THEN- I was happy to hear about other peoples experiences in life....NOW- I go out and experience it with them

THEN- I didn't feel like my insides matched my outsides......NOW- I feel complete

THEN- I sat on the couch watching shows of others doing amazing things.....NOW- I'm doing the amazing things, like training for this RockStar Adventure race and for my first Triathlon in Sept!

THEN- The clothes picked me. I had to buy whatever fit me....NOW- I PICK THE CLOTHES!!!!!

THEN- I would sweat when I ate.......NOW- I sweat 6 days a week working out with Phat Chicks and Raceday Rushers

- I wouldn't have had the courage to move forward in the face of fear and the unknown.......NOW- I feel the fear but still move forward

NOW- Check out the video of our AMAZING training day. It was a chance to get a taste of what the real race will be like. Shane and Neil hide their balls all over the forest at different check points and we had to race to find them, get the colour and be the first out.....check out who the first team was!!!! BOO-YA BABY!!!!!



  1. Boo-Ya Baby, YOU and Beverly-Ann were the first to find Shane and Neil's balls... as you put it... hahahahaaa... too funny :-)
