“What are you passionate about?”, this is the question I am set up on my couch to answer by video on a private Facebook discussion. I’m trying to sit casually but my body language conveys a subtle discomfort that comes from deep-rooted fear and anxiety of being seen as stupid. Yes stupid. My lips are tight, my legs are crossed.
Are you afraid to speak your truth? ...
From experience it’s easier to sit on the sidelines and dish out opinions and judgments on others, but there comes a time when you look around and decide you’d rather be in the company of those who are in the ring with their skin in the game ...
It can be as simple as saying “yes” when you mean yes, or “no” when you mean no. It can be in choosing to not contribute your energy towards a judgmental conversation. It can be in intentional effort towards creating a safe space for others to be themselves in your presence ...
How will you put your skin in the game today? How will you speak your truth? ...
Good job boys! 🇭🇷 Our Croatian Roots are coming out for the @fifaworldcup! The fam jam is paying homage to the Croatian team with delicacies from the old country; my Baba’s homemade kobasi sausage, my mom’s walnut roll from a family’s recipe, homemade crepes (family tradition way) with cottage cheese and lemon stuffing…so delicious. Great game, back to work now 👍
A great honour to attend the Athletics Alberta annual awards banquet (with my date, Anika!). Supporting high performers in our sport of track and field in all age groups, able bodied and para athletes.
It was a pleasure to hear fellow Olympian @jessmoconnell speak on stage. Always something to learn from each other’s stories, thank you Jess. ..
I was reminded of the silent courage we all have within us; that doesn’t have to be especially bold or loud, but has the strength to shine through challenging stretches when each day can count as a small win. ..
Congrats to all of the athletes who received recognition tonight! ..
What a spectacle! I was able to be in London Ontario for the opening night of the North American Premiere of the Chariots of Fire at the Grand Theatre. An all-time favourite, and a strange (but true) fact… growing up, on competition mornings, my dad would wake me and my sisters up with the theme song of Chariots of Fire blaring 😳 Lol
Good friend (and previous coach of mine), @vickiecroley UWO head track coach, trained the actors to look the part and I must say I cringed not once at any running techniques- most impressive 🙌
I wonderful group of talented individuals behind the scenes created a truly historical and inspirational performance!Congratulations @thegrandlondon

How great has it been to cheer on our Olympics Athletes in Pyeongchang? Feeling Inspired?!!
Here are 3 Questions;
I’m reaching out to get YOUR opinion to better understand how we can bring this inspiration closer to our communities to keep it alive well past the Olympic Games!
Q1: If there was an opportunity to engage with Olympic Athlete(s) in your community, would this be of interest? ...if so,
Q2: What type of setting would appeal to you? * Examples included (but are not limited to): Skill learning workshops, corporate, private events, kids activities, promotional, speaking engagement, fundraisers/charity events, clinics for organized sport, one-on-one personal training, school appearances, themed workshops (nutrition, mental toughness, etc), birthday party appearances, multi-day travel fitness challenges…
Q3: Would you be willing to pay a fee for these experiences, knowing it is a source of income for the athletes?
I appreciate your feedback 🙌 #GoCanada!!
