Once a couch potato, now a 5th year age-grouper triathlete, Canadian Kelownagurl talks about her goals, her training, and her life in general in hope of providing encouragement and inspirations to other "average" people who have always dreamed of doing something they never thought possible. Her motto is "It's never too late to be who you might have been." ~ George Eliot
