"Every year, around this time, things become a little more stressful - you're trying to qualify to represent Canada at World Championships and when you finally do, you have the responsibility to sponsors, government agencies, your sport federation and your country. It's easy to get caught up in all of that and when you do the milliseconds and millimetres of the sport seem so much bigger.
But it's all about perspective - I constantly have to remind myself take a breath, take in my surroundings and recognize how much a privledge it is to represent my family, friends and country in something as simple as skating in circles." - @giljunio, speed skater and elite ambassador #stretchyourhead
"Waiting for Winter”
This is one of my favourite places to train, find inspiration, find motivation, and to clear my head. This is the outdoor rink in Millrise (Calgary neighbourhood), a block away from where I grew up and where I learnt how to skate; this is where it all started and I fell in love with being on the ice. For me, nothing beats a clean sheet of ice, seeing your breathe in the crisp cold air and playing on a clear sunny day or under the lights on a starry night. My roots are on this piece pavement and it represents the community that made me who I am. @giljunio#pbcm#FindYourHappyPlace

Pulling girls at the gym. Just another day at work. #thesweatlife
So thankful for the aclaro softworks family and all the support they have given me over the years. Throughly enjoyed the Christmas party and I'd love to stay for breakfast but it's 5:45 am and I gotta go skate. #norestforthewicked#thesweatlife

Fall World Cups are all said and done; ups and downs but a lot of lessons to learn from moving forward. So stoked I got to end the fall skating against my Finnish brother, @mikapoutala, beauty dude that helped inject some life into my skating this year. Come back soon my friend! #flexonem#degenerationx
