Why do you ride?

I was inspired at my brother’s yoga class he taught recently at the Distritk. Before class begins, everyone introduces themselves and answers one powerful question. I wanted to try this on at Method.

Why I Race | Vancouver Sun Run 2016

10km running races used to scare me. They are short and fast. How do you pace? How long can you hold onto the feeling of uncomfortable? I have found longer races, like Ironman, to be far more comfortable because I have never realllllly been pushing hard — just going long. I shared that I had […]

Lessons from the Next Generation: The Founders of egg. magazine

I’m wildly inspired by the Richard Bransons and Seth Godins of the world who are obsessed with their craft of building brands and businesses, with heart. I’m also heart-wrecked when I hear anyone say they are “making a business decision” as though a business can exist without people. Never! In business, we make human decisions […]
