I’ll come straight out and say that there’s no way I would have had the performances I have without the expert coaching of Paolina Allan at Ignition FItness. While she’d be the first to say I do all the work, Paolina has used her experience as a pro triathlete and top Masters athlete to help me grow, mentally and physically, from a middle-of-the-pack age grouper to elite triathlete.
I was running in Skechers shoes long before I became an ambassador, so when they asked if I would like to join the team I was really excited! My staple shoe is the GoRun4, but I use the Speed 3 for shorter races and speed work and have a pair of GoWalk Super Socks for just hanging around.
I first met xact NUTRITION co-founders Lawrence and Marianne in 2014, and was so impressed with their FRUIT2 and FRUIT3 bars that I asked them on the spot if I could be an ambassador! I’ve really enjoyed being part of the team, and watching the company introduce more amazing products like the ProKrunch bar and new OMG-incredible Maple Energy bar.
I have been competing in Multisport Canada races since 2006, and the series has been absolutely integral in sparking my love of triathlon and putting me on the path to Kona. Without the supportive and family-friendly race environment of Multisport Canada and the Recharge with Milk Triathlon Series, I would not have had the chance to grow into the athlete I am today.
3Sixty5 makes buying speed easy and (more) affordable with great quality wheels and and fantastic customer service – and they’re Canadian! Hector and I have a set of the FAT60 wheels and a clincher disc. “Fast enough to win, tough enough to ride year round!”

I love stuff backed up by science! Check out their recommended dosing to maximize performance benefits.
