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.

Separating for Spartan... Monday, June 26

In unofficial news I decided to break away from the pack and create my own team.  I had been debating doing the Spartan Race here on September 16th and both Skittles and I were going to form a team.  We both have our own thoughts on who we should have on our team.  He's more into just asking anyone he knows where as I want a team of solid, fierce contenders.  I figure the team can go one of two ways.  Either I pack it with friends and newbies I can help train and do the competition for them or I can stack my team with competitors who'll fight hard for this and inspiring each other.

And so, on that note, I decided it best Skittles part and make our own separate teams.  

My team is going to be all women.  Correction, my team is going to be all fierce females.  I want a stacked team of females I look up to, team mates that will motivate me as much as intimidate me with their competitiveness and determination.  

Tonight I sent out emails to some of the women I'm hoping will join me in this amazing challenge.

My picks so far consist of the following inspiring female athletes:
Lady J -- pro MMA/boxer
Lady B -- Muay Thai fighter
Lady P -- boxer
Lady A -- triathlete
