Jokingly told the boys I was going to fall in love tonight... guess the joke's on me. This little gal is my niece, Celeste Read. Massive congratulations to my sister & Blair! Can't wait to see where this adventure takes you - y'all are going to make some amazing parents. Celeste, you got the world ahead of you but know I'll always have your back. Sincerely, your coolest uncle 😎. #Cece #ImAnUncle!

That's about as bad as two weeks of competition could probably go... knock on wood 😬. After being relegated to the B Group following two lacklustre races in Harbin, I needed a B Group podium to continue on the road with the team according to new Canadian team guidelines. I finished 6th. Which means no more Fall World Cups for me and a long flight home. I find myself in a tough spot and under circumstances I haven't been in since I first made the National Team 6 years ago. I'm still trying to figure exactly went wrong these past two weeks, especially after starting the season so strong; that might be the most frustrating part. Although a definite low point in my career as a speed skater, opening yourself to failures is part of being an elite athlete... you just hope the lows aren't too low, this low. This definitely stings, however, it was a good reminder how fortunate I am to have an amazing support network around me and that starts with my parents. They came to Nagano to surprise me and watch World Cup racing abroad. I didn't hold up my end of the bargain but their support has never wavered and they still were there after the race to give me a hug (from mom) and a high five (from pops) and even dinner. There aren't enough words to describe how much I appreciate them for always being there but I hope "I love you mom and dad" will suffice. Woe is not me and I don't wear pity well. So it's back to Calgary. To regroup, refocus and work harder than ever to be back where I know I can be. A little adversity never hurt nobody. Good luck and bonne chance to the rest of Team Canada continuing on to Astana and Heerenveen! I'll be cheering for you all! #realthoughts #realtalk #oneleaf #movingon
