Tribe Tunes Tuesday: SeaWheeze Edition

Tunes Tuesday2

At Tribe we have officially launched out training program for the SeaWheeze half marathon this August in Vancouver. With over 30 runners from Tribe we know it’s going to be an epic party, but thanks to the release of the Sunset Festival band line-up that party just got even more exciting.

SeaWheeze is more than a half marathon – in fact many runners say the running is the least exciting part! It’s the lead up events – free yoga – shopping – street entertainers – free food – and many other experiences at the expo and then the post run party includes more yoga with thousands of your new closest run friends – vendors with delicious food and drinks – more shopping – free trapeze – and a line up of epic musicians. And yes, all this is included with your race entry! (plus a medal, finisher swag, and training swag).

So who is this years epic post run party line up?


Now to help you get in the spirit Tribe has created our own Spotify playlist of our favourite songs from these three artists. Check it out here and enjoy!

2016 Race Goals

2016 is already shaping up to be a year of excitement and change. Last year I took a small step back from racing, only entering 10 races (5km x 1, 10k x 3, 15km x 1, 21k x 1, 30k x 1, and 42k x 2), which included my return to Triathlon after my first half Iron Man in 2014.


This year I am very excited to have Tribe team up with Canada Running Series to support their Toronto races and help with an exciting new race, the Waterfront 10k. I’m excited to be in the position of Director of Ambassadors with Toronto Triathlon Festival, so look forward to having my TTF experience community based and supporting those online nd in Tribe. I will be returning to the pace team at SeaWheeze for my fourth consecutive year and will be taking over 30 members from Tribe with me – our biggest Tribe Tour yet! The NYC Marathon will be my 10th, so I’m excited to head back to the city where my marathon journey began, and to top it off, I will be making my return to Iron Man distance races with the Montreal 70.3.

If you’re looking to race more, please join me at one of the following races this 2016 season.



January Recap

janpicJanuary has been a great month professionally and I’ve loved the start I’ve had to 2013. I just wanted to highlight some of my 2013 successes related to my goals and intentions and some other cool things that have gone done so far.

  • On January 2nd, I had my first segment as the fitness expert on CHCH Morning Live.  I was nervous leading up to the morning, the 6minutes flew by, and when I was done and got to watch it I was so happy with how it went – luckily CHCH was as well, and my second segment has been booked for Feb 4th.
  • The second week of January my wonderful two year stint as a run ambassador with the Queen St. West lululemon came to an end and the opportunity to stay on until a successor was found was offered, and of course as I move into an alumni position I’m very happy to continue to support my lulu family and the Toronto run community.
  • Mid January I accepted a contract with GrandFondo Niagara Falls as an official blogger for the 125km cycling race. I’m nervous for the race, but excited for the opportunity to share the experience and to challenge myself and move from my indoor cycling bike to the road!
  • I registered for the lululemon SeaWheeze half marathon – woot!
  • I booked my first interview with Canadian Running Magazine which will take place on Feb 7th and be on the topic of yoga for runners.
  • I was asked by BeachBody Canada to do a blog review on Insanity. I’ve wanted to try it for a couple years know, so loved this offer and couldn’t say no!
  • I was hired to teach indoor cycling at the Toronto Shangri-La Hotel

2013 Goals Status:

Here’s a little update on some of my 2013 goals.

  • I registered for my 2 2013 Full Marathons! The Goodlife Marathon & Road2Hope, with a Boston Qualifier hopefully coming at Road2Hope!
  • One of my goals for 2013 was to continue to blog on a month basis, which I’ve done! And I’ve certainly been feeling the love from the twitterverse as well.
  • I also learned the name of “Grasshopper pose” (Thanks Vince) and am working on it!
  • Connected to SeaWheeze Mark and I are hoping to tack on an Alaskan Cruise before.
  • I received a really great looking healthy eating magazine for Christmas (thanks Santa) and had all intentions of sticking to my 1 new recipe a week, but it hasn’t happened – yet!
  • While I’ve certainly been doing my yoga and cycling I haven’t been getting in quality full body strength training, so will work on that with my new Insanity
  • I have found a new physiotherapist and things seem to be going well, so hoping the hip will be back to normal soon.
  • I continue to write H&PE related content for work, and it looks to be moving into a busy part of the year, so I have no doubt I’ll get three more resources added to my writing portfolio

My 2013 Mantra: “I am fearless, I am dedicated, I am blissful, I am blessed”
