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.

Fuelled by the Bad?!... Tuesday, October 1

It's official... at 2:54pm, I officially am registered to beat "those" 2 cute, little Filipina's in the Spartan Beast -- Sunday, October 27th.

I can't reveal who "those" two Filipinas are but I have beef to pick with them and I plan to do it by proving I am the better athlete, the REAL athlete, and not just some cute girl in spandex and pearly white teeth... [cough, cough... like them... cough].

Now I'm not hating on those who milk the pretty card but don't play that card with me and think it 
a. gets you out of being disrespectful
b. earns you respect as an athlete

I'm a girl... a woman... so you being pretty and batting your lashes doesn't work for me, nor does the lack of women competing in an event and you basically winning by default.  Let me give you some REAL competition, alright?!  Alright.

Ya... definitely too many mean girl moments here.  Sorry I'm not sorry.

I've never competed in a Spartan event nor have I even trained for something like this.  But it's a 21km race with 30 obstacles so I'm banking on me being a long distance runner than I can make up for my overkill on the time with the obstacles with the running from obstacle to obstacle.  

My first sport is actually running.  I am a long distance runner so running is originally my thing. 

I'm way too competitive, I know, and maybe I've had way too many mean girl moments thinking about this.  I think I actually wrote about this in an early post, too... possibly.  Anyways, it's fuelling me for this event so I'm just going to go with it.  God knows I need some kind of goal or focus to drive me with continually training hard and eating clean.
