Happy Mother's Day โค Grateful for a mom who supports my big dreams no matter what, even when my career choice sometimes causes her to worry! ๐Ÿ˜… Here we are pictured in Rio, races look different this year as friends & family can't come to cheer, but that support from afar still counts for so much! . Swipe for some quotes from a recent @winnipegfreepress article ๐Ÿ˜‰ #happymothersday #teamcanada

Climb a mountain, eat some snacks, pretty ideal start to my training block here I'm Spain! โ˜€๏ธ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡ธ New roads call for new recipes, so I tested chocolate zucchini oat bread today๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿซ Thinking of nutrition, I was reminded while riding in the heat how you need to adapt your nutrition plan to different environments. I definitely need to make hydration more of a priority during this block as we transition away from those cold spring training and racing days!๐Ÿ”ฅ . . #happinesswatts #spain #newroads #newrecipes #baking #food #nutrition #keepchallenging

3rd place finish on punchy stage 1 at @festivalelsyjacobsofficiel ๐Ÿฅ‰ Currently sitting 2nd on GC. We had some bad luck as @lorenawiebes crashed in the stage while wearing the leader's jersey, but she showed great fighting spirit to chase back the break on the final lap. Final stage today in Garnich, it promises to be explosive as seconds still separate the GC๐Ÿ’ฅ Watch it live from 14h20 CET . . #FElsy #luxembourg #stageracing #cycling #womenscycling #keepchallenging ๐Ÿ“ท Cor Vos

This pandemic continues to challenge us in so many ways each day. I know we are all dreaming of the day where we can enjoy the small joys in life without needing to constantly run a risk assessment. . Vaccines are how this can end! This is why we all need to step up when itโ€™s our turn and get the shot. Head on over to @thisisourshotca to have all your vaccination questions answered and to get your shirt. My challenge to everyone is to get your shot, get your shirt, & tag your friends and challenge them to do the same. All proceeds go to @kidshelpphone to help those who have faced mental health challenges during COVID-19. . Until we are all able to get vaccinated, continue to follow public health guidelines to the best of your abilities. Sending lots of love and support out to everyone dealing with difficult situations, a little bit of self-care and self-compassion can go a long way at this moment in time. We are all just humans doing the very best we can to exist during a pandemic. . Stay safe everyone, and get vaccinated when it is your turn! #ThisIsOurShot www.thisisourshot.ca

Happiest in nature ๐Ÿ˜Š๐ŸŒณ Happy Earth Day everyone! ๐ŸŒŽ Let's all do our part to keep the world wondrous for future generations to come ๐ŸŒฑ#Earthday
