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

Training Partner

I have been listening to KG for over a year and have enjoyed every podcast. She provides great info about the sport and motivation to get out the door or on the trainer. Although she lets Eric, her husband, speak periodically, they sound like a good fun couple. Keep the podcast coming and see you on the trail.

Triathlons and Life

I started listening after I did a search for any podcast about triathlons, and now after a year of listening, I find myself stuck in traffic and a little bit happy because I can keep listening to the show.
