Race Season Wrap-Up
 


My 2015 season saw me through some great highs and tough lows. The benefits of hindsight, experience and -- dare I say, maturity -- have taught me there really isn't such a thing as a "high" or a "low." It's only one's feeling about the situation that makes it seem one or the other.

I felt great after my 16th place finish at the Rio de Janeiro Olympic Test Event and my season-ending victory in Noosa. I felt awful after a string of middle-of-the-pack performances earlier this spring left me searching for answers. I questioned myself while sitting at the University of Alberta Hospital waiting for a rock to be extracted from my heel. Would the Rio result have been possible without the lessons learned while fighting through those tough spring races? Would I have finished the year strong if I hadn't forged my resolve in Edmonton? The highs and lows aren't part of the process; they  are the process.  

In my work to become both the best athlete and person I can be, I hope my journey inspires you to do the same. I encourage you to use my story to craft a more fulfilling one for yourself. Being alive gives us the capacity to change, both physically and mentally. There's an even more exceptional person within each of us. Looking ahead to my offseason and towards 2016, my wish for you is the same as my goal for myself -- to look inside and decide to let that greatness out!  You'll be rewarded in ways you never thought possible.
