My name is Erika. I am a university student-athlete living in Canada. I love to row, run, cycle, and hike. I often catch myself dreaming of places I wish to travel to. I just found out (on January 16th 2014) that my rowing career is over due to an injury I sustained in January of 2013. I am starting a new chapter of my life and redefining my health goals.
Hey there I have been busy with the start off the triathlon race season.....going to be riding a Double Century tomorrow and Sunday. Ironman is June 22 in Tremblant! Glad to see you are doing so much better.....when one door closes...corny but true!
Hi GoGirl. Thank you for commenting on my blog post. I've been on Spark for about a week and am still finding my way around. Reading your Spark Page and blog entries reminds me a lot of myself, especially in my college years. Congratulations on feeling better and more positive about yourself. Good luck with qualifying for Boston! It's a goal of mine too.
