I’m from Kaslo BC. Outdoor Toys have always been a part of my life, as they are with most people out here in the Kootenays. About three years ago I was bitten by the sled bug, and I haven’t looked back. The rush and joy I experience from Jumping, climbing and playing is something that is indescribable. Each outing is something fresh and new.
In September of 2011 I went through knee surgery. I had damaged my mcl and torn my meniscus. A few pins to hold my knee together then I was playing the waiting game. It was a gruelling six weeks of waiting combined with physio. I couldn’t wait to get back riding again. Then it was on. We had a great start to the season until I had an accident. I split my knee cap open on my running board. Yes it was my bad knee. It seems like that is always the way with me. The knee that gets it, is always my weak one. This time it was only three weeks of healing.
I’m back at it again with the help of my supportive amazing husband. He is my cheering squad and my inspiration. He encouraged me to keep going even when I was ready to give up due to injury. He is a kind and patient teacher. My best friend. I’m a wife and a mother, first and foremost, but when I’m out on my ride “Cali” I’m a sled head, and damn proud to be a Female Rider in BC!
