About Me

14516423_10154057657192861_3182404142509735214_nI swim, I bike, I run, I drink wine, I love sports, and thrive off adventure and living life at a hundred miles an hour. I started this blog to chronicle my journey to my first Ironman race in 2015, and after that, I just kept writing stories – stories of winning, losing, humourous self-deprecation and adventure. I am honest, raw, open and opinionated.

Ironman began as a big dream to do something meaningful and different with my life and as an inspiration to raise money for Multiple Sclerosis. And in chasing my dreams, I found my passion.

Thanks for joining in – I hope you enjoy the ride.

  1. I am so pumped that I stumbled across your blog. I too have decided to start the epic (ugh I hate that word, but its so fitting) journey toward being called “IRONMAN”. Ironically enough, my father was diagnosed with MS two years ago so I was really drawn to your story. I’m shooting or Lake Placid 2016 and am working on setting up a blog as well (mostly to save my friends on other social media from my constant sweaty selfies, road rash, etc) Good luck to you, and i’ll be following your story all along!!!

    • You just made my night. I started my blog for the same reasons as you, but as I’ve gone along I’ve realized it’s also about connecting with people who have similar stories. I’m so glad we connected. I will definitely be looking for your stories along the way too. All the best, it’s one hell of a ride.

  2. Hi Aly,

    My name is Francesca. I’m the producer of the Jim Harrison Show in Kamloops. I am hoping to get you on the show to chat about your journey to Ironman Canada and your efforts to raise money for the MS Society.
    If you could please get back to me whenever you get a moment, it would be greatly appreciated.
