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.

Running Free... Monday, August 21

My doctor said no boxing and no rugby so I interpreted it as nothing that could possibly touch my head, mess up my stitches.  So I went running tonight.  I got new earphones the other day and finally got a chance to try them out.

And speaking of running, this weekend I'm launching the "+1" to Acacia Sole Sistas +1.  The +1 is that now my female runners can bring a male runner to the team run.  Keep in mind that a guy can be a woman's plus one but he can't come alone.  Us women still rule the team, that is.  Let's not forget that.  But with many of my fighters and some interested female runners asking if they can bring their husband, boyfriend or friend, I thought why not.  

I've got a local chocolate company bringing a little sweet pre-run treat for all that show up for the first +1 run and I thinking about supplying a post-run snack of coffee and peanut butter grilled sandwiches with Fix and Fogg.  Not too sure yet.  It really depends on the numbers that sign up.
