Two months from today, I will be racing for Canada at the ITU World Championships in Chicago. This journey has been scary, humbling, and filled with joy.karmen running from back - ITU kit

Looking at the weeks ahead, I know that I would not be here without the support of the dozens of people who have provided me with love, motivation, and financial assistance.

Along this journey, I have been fortunate to receive donations and sponsorship from strangers, friends, and relatives who have blown me away with their generosity.

I have also had the amazing pleasure of hearing stories of people who have started running, biking, and swimming. When I hear these stories, I remember that this is why I started blogging in the first place. My goal is to inspire others to do things that they never thought possible. I believe that inside each of us is more strength than we can imagine.

Now, as we enter into the home stretch, I am asking for your support to fund the last leg of my journey. To date, together, we have raised $8513 out of the target of $9500. 100% of funds raised will go toward training and racing expenses for the World Championships.karmen biking ITU kit from front

I know that I will never make money at this sport. Quite the opposite – a large portion of my income will continue to support triathlon! But I am hoping that you will be willing to support me in my journey toward the podium in Chicago.

Thank you for your continuing love and support. Thank you for joining me on the journey.
