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.

Amazing, Inspiring Women

 On Friday I was asked to participate, yesterday I signed up, today I won first place.
It was a rough and tough run to the top but the view was amazing.
Today's Vertical Run was pretty amazing, not going to downplay it, and I have this lady to thank.
Upon returning down after the run up, I was asked to pose with this fierce gal for a picture.
At the moment, I didn't know who she was or why the picture... then I found out.  She had been sitting in first place... that is until I went up.
Talk about fierce competition, I beat 2nd place by 20 seconds and 
2nd place beat 3rd place by milliseconds!

Proud to be sharing the stage with these fierce females -- this year's 
top 3 for the women ages 30-39, Vertical Run.

I love a good competition and today the three of us really gave it our all.  Before today, I didn't know these girls, but now I know them as this badass awesome fabulous females that really kicked butt at the Vertical Run. 
Shout-out to all the ladies who participated in the Kerry Sports ManilaVertical Run today!!! 
I met so many amazingly strong women; so very inspiring.  In this picture, the top three runners for the women's 30-39 category and a fierce female from the Elite category with our very own Coach Amy scoring first place!
