As the story has it, one day I headed to the opposite side of the globe – the Flipside. I arrived in Korea on February 16th, 2005 and thought I’d do a year, then leave. I went from being some random foreign girl to taking on labels I never imagined – university professor, film extra, professional boxer, reality TV star, CEO of my own girls-only fitness company (Flipside Fitness), CEO of my own boxing club (Hulk's Club, formerly known as Hulk's Boxing), and now I'm launching my 3rd business -- Empowered Clubhouse.

After 11.5yrs in Korea, I then picked up one day and returned to Toronto, Canada. But then I left again. This time it was for the Philippines. That's where I am now, living in the land of the happy people. The struggles are real and the struggles are many but I'm living life on my terms, I'm calling the shots, and I'm doing what I love. Life is an amazing adventure and this is my story of yesterday.

A Crazy Cool Very and a Crazy Cool Challenge

The view from my 10am business mentoring meeting.
See that big brown building with the pool, that's the Philippine Army gym where I use to box.
 My ride home from my meeting today.  It was just way too hot to walk and a jeepney 
ride was just too cheap to pass up so I took it.
And what started out as only 2 of us in the back of the jeepney quickly rose to 25, maybe even more, 
I don't know.  After 25 I was way too squished to even try to count.
I'm officially signed up for the Kerry Sport's Vertical Run.  It's tomorrow so that means tomorrow's planned day off now gets forced upon today as I let my legs rest for tomorrow's unexpected challenge.
