Tales of triathlon, travel, and trails

About Me

My name is Amy, although my friends call me IronAmy. I am a dentist currently living in Calgary, Alberta.

I have been an athlete all my life, primarily participating in team sports – soccer, fieldhockey, and basketball. In University I took up running and eventually started triathlon in 2003 as a way to get through the winters in the frozen tundra known as Edmonton.

Since 2010 I’ve been focusing on long course triathlon, especially Ironman distance. I love the physical challenge, but even more than that, I love the mental challenge. I still haven’t been able to actually “race” an Ironman as I am the worst Ironman runner in the history of the sport!

I also love to surf and I love to travel. Nowadays, I try to combine surfing and triathlon/running into my travel plans. I love California (I used to live in LA) and I pretty much need a constant fix of California, and the ocean, to get me through the cold Canadian winters.

I have been a proud member of Team Betty Designs since 2014. Betty makes kick ass cycling, triathlon, swimming, and SUP gear and readily supports women athletes to be both strong and beautiful.
