As the story has it, I woke up and found myself on the very opposite side of the globe – the flipside. I arrived February 16th, 2005 and thought I’d simply do a year, then leave. Years later and I’m still here. I went from being some random foreign girl to taking on labels I never imagined – university professor, film extra, professional boxer, CEO of my own girls-only fitness company, Flipside Fitness, and CEO of my own boxing club, Korea's largest -- Hulk's Club, formerly known as Hulk's Boxing.

After 11.5yrs in Korea, I picked up one day and left. I returned to Toronto, Canada but only to pack up my bags and venture out again. Now I'm living in Makati, Philippines. Life for me is better in Asia and I'm so happy here. This isn't a new chapter in the book of my life though, it's a whole new book I've started!!! I'm a whole new woman. I left Korea with Flipside Fitness on my brain, Hulk's in my heart, boxing in my bag, and my four-legged friend Balboa Button by my side.

Life is an adventure and this is my story of yesterday.

Running in the Rain... Saturday, May 14

Rain or shine we train. Today it rained; today we trained.  I hate running in the rain -- wet shoes, wet socks, squishy feet slipping around in slippery shoes.  And what's worse than running in the rain then running in the rain with broken headphones.  My headphones have officially gone ghetto on me -- sometimes they work, other times they cut in and out. Thankfully it didn't rain too much and I had Coach Madman running with me and filling my ears with tips and stories so the lack of music wasn't bad at all. 

Today was Coach Madman's birthday and we "celebrated" it via the addition of stair runs...great.  Running damn wooden steps that are already falling apart, in the rain, sounds like fun to me...sarcastically speaking that is.  We then returned to System to do some leg training with weights.  Am convinced my pain is his pleasure.  Happy birthday Coach Madman.
