Big News!!! World 100k Championships in Holland here I come!

   Seriously, how is this happening?  I am so excited, proud, and humbled to be selected to represent Canada in the World 100k Ultrarunning Championship in Winschoten, The Netherlands on Saturday September 12, 2015.

   The ACU team manager, Armand Leblanc asked me if I was interested in running on the national team at the Dirty Girls race.  I was very interested.  It was a goal of mine to qualify for the world 100k team in 2016.  This just sped up the process.  My race performance that day justified his decision, and I have accepted his offer.  I am so proud to be representing Canada again.  I get to line up with my Canadian team teammates, in our National team uniforms, and share an amazing experience with them.  I am so unbelievably proud.
