In 2012, a personal trainer Jana hired to help her get, 'healthy and fit' dared her to sign up for the Sporting Life 10k.
Littile did he know that dare would spark a new passion for running and triathlon. She's since completed numerous short races, five marathons, and two Ironman triathlons. Jana also represented Canada at the 2017 Age Group ITU World Triathlon Championships in Rotterdam. Her current quest is to qualify for the Boston Marathon.
While Jana has come a long way in her fitness journey, she will never forget where she began and all the people who helped her along the way. While she doesn't see herself as an expert (She leaves that to her coach) - she will happily answer questions or give encouragement to friends who want to take on audacious goals.
