My asthma hasn't been very happy lately. So many things interfering with it that it's becoming a pain. Not really a pain but more like a very bad frustration that is getting to me. I keep coming up with game plans to work around it but something else comes up and I start back at square one again. As you guessed it I am back at square one desperately wanting to get back on track and find my mojo again. I really miss it.... like really miss it. I have decided to take up boxing. I took a class and LOVED IT!! Now the plan is trying to find a place that works with my crazy schedule but also I can do with my son. He has since decided he wants to try it out and see if it's something he would like to do. Would be a super cool thing for him and I to do together.
I have done a few races since I last posted. Well they were races that were finished but took longer then wanted and expected. But they all ended up being a total blast, and I met new people too which is even better.
Red Deer Super Spartan went good but slow which was ok as I was able to hang out with some awesome people. The new layout was great and making it more like the US ones was nice to see too.
Rugged Maniac was a blast as usual and never a boring race. Had a lot of fun along the way.
Calgary Spartan Sprint... ya I know I vowed to never run it again but decided to since I needed a sprint to just get my single trifecta. Getting a double and triple trifecta were hard work getting to them but also my lungs and asthma were much happier. The new layout was better and it was slightly harder but still don't like the track its on, no shade at all and we didn't get anything at the end of the race either other then our shirt and water. It was sooo hot and dusty as well which is never a good thing for my asthma.
Went to Montana for our annual vacation with the parents and as always had a great time, relaxed a bunch and got some exercise in for the first time in awhile. Don't know what it is about it but I always feel pretty great when I am there. One of my second homes for sure.
Also some other exciting things are going on in my life.
I was nominated by my amazing friends to have an article published online about me. It was a huge honor to have been selected. Charity writes these and I have been following and reading her work for awhile now. If you haven't been reading her stuff you seriously need to. Here is the link to mine CLICK HERE!
Also been asked to be featured for a new thing they are wanting to start up in Calgary and that will be featured end of this month. Not sure exactly when but think it's an awesome idea and something up my alley for sure. Will post more once it's posted out there.
Another cool thing is I was also approached from a clothing line to rep and I can't wait to get my order in. Once I get my things I will post a link and pics as well I will have a coupon code for 15% off. Super cool I know!!
Its feeling super weird for me to be approached for things like this. I am just trying to make it thru this thing called life and stumbling as I go along. Learning along the way and making changes as I go. I am glad I can help others out there that might going thru something like I am or have gone thru. I want everyone to know they are not alone and can reach out anytime about anything. No judgement EVER!!! Just oodles and oodles of support, love and encouragement.
I am just super excited for the future and just need to get over this asthma bump in the road I am going thru. I will get thru it eventually. As a friend reminded me that without the troubles I have been having with these lungs I wouldn't be where I am at and be the person I am today. Words that hit me hard and spoke so much truth. I need to have a little more patience and just keep doing what I can. Need to focus that I am still alive and able to keep doing this even if my races are slow right now but I will make my comeback and when I do I will be that much more stronger and more determined. Best part is I have someone amazing in my life to get to know and have awesome adventures with. Our Hike was so much fun. Just the start of this new chapter!
I am posting below some of my fav pics from races and hiking fun!
Tomorrow heading to up north to Boneyard for X Warrior Wilderness race. Going to be racing and volunteering up there for a crazy day trip adventure!
Until Next Time...

I am a single mom with one son that has been living with asthma since I was 2yrs old. I also almost died three times due to severe asthma attacks! I don't let my asthma stop me from accomplishing new goals and living life to the fullest.
