2008 was an unbelievable year. So much happened that it actually felt like 2 years in one. Pre-Olympics, and Post-Olympics!
I achieved my goal of going to the Olympics. It has been a dream since I was little, and to go to Beijing, and make the final and then come 7th was sublime! Thanks to my mom Colleen and dad Francois for all your support. It wouldn’t have been possible without your backing and help.
So what do you do when you achieve your goals? You find another one! I am going to focus all my energy for 2009 on the Surf Ski World Series, as well as Marathon World Champs (Portugal in September). Between training and racing I am going to be opening up an online coaching business. Surf Ski paddling is one of the fastest growing sports in the world right now, I am so excited to be a part of it, and I want to help more people become a part of it, and learn how to set goals, train for them, and achieve them.
All the best for 2009!!
