GRAND SLAM!!!

GRAND SLAM

On November 11, I set three Canadian records:

– 1st Canadian woman to complete the Last Desert ultra in Antarctica

– 1st Canadian woman to complete the Four Deserts Series

– 1st Canadian woman to complete the Four Deserts Series as a Grand Slam (all in one year)

I became the 8th woman in history to accomplishment this Grand Slam feat.

4 hard-earned medals!

A few years ago, I completed a marathon in Antarctica (2011) and the North Pole (2013). And then I began to wonder what else I could attempt. The Four Deserts is a series of 7 day, 250 km self-supported races through four deserts (Jordan, China, Chile and Antarctica)
