An endurance athlete, community builder, and systemic designer for more just and sustainable futures. Over the past five years, I fell in love with endurance training as a way to spend time in the sun and snow (living in Austin, Toronto, Cape Town, and Italy—so truly a weather combo), to build community (taught indoor cycling classes at a bike shop during Toronto winters, started a virtual run club called Friends of Friends during quarantine, hosted a virtual metric half marathon - 13.1 km - to raise money for racial justice, ran with a Nike running group dedicated to the local restaurant community), and to continue showing myself that I can do things I thought I couldn’t (just wrapped my first trail 50 miler last month!). I’ve loved everything the Picky Bar community stands for (and am an avid listener to the podcast!): healthy relationships to sport, to our food, to our bodies, and to how all these things can be leveraged to build each other up. Would love to join you in spreading this message! Already made the bike shop I worked at in Toronto start carrying picky bars. :-)
