My favourite end-of-practice game to play growing up was Torpedo! Objective: Get from one end of the rink to the other without getting hit. Get hit, you’re out and you get to throw at the remaining skaters. It was agility, blade control, speed, body awareness but mostly it was just FUN!
Thank you @yycspeed for having me out on the ice with the kids and giving me a chance to relive a bit of my childhood. These are the moments that make me love the sport 😌
Power down ⚡️ Revs up 🌪
Testing the gains from the summer before we start racing in two(!) weeks.
Through 29 years I’ve always said “surround yourself with good people”. I was lucky enough to spend the August long weekend with a couple of the best of them!
Felt cute. Might delete. 😅
Anyways, it’s August long! Get your friends, maybe a couple bevvys and enjoy the weather! What are you up to this August long? 📸: @raflopez#yyc#augustlong
11 up, 11 down; another @CalgaryStampede has come and gone!
Christmas time calls for Christmas family photos. Stampede time calls for Stampede family photos. Same same but different.
It’s #OlympicDay! The @Olympics are a celebration of culture, community and sport but the impact the athletes and their stories have go beyond what happens every two years. From @kyleshew’s gold medal in Athens to Sid’s golden goal in Vancouver, so many amazing moments that have inspire generations.
What’s your favourite Olympic moment?
Happy #internationalyogaday! Here’s a shot of me in my favourite yoga pose, shavasana. Also known as corpse pose, also known as Gilmore goes night-night. Yoga has taught me a lot. Contrary to what some might believe, I was a loose cannon back in the day, breaking my hand on several occasions after bad races or unwelcome outcomes. Wasn’t until I started practicing yoga did I learn to let go and let myself be in the moment, albeit an ongoing process. I’ll admit, it was intimidating at first but you can learn a lot about yourself if you let it, so hit the mat!
#fbf to unbelievable three days at @lululemon#ambassadorsummit2016!
Another year, another legendary Jamboree for Charity Calgary! #fbf to last Saturday for an epic night of good music, good people and a good cause. This year @craigsenyk and the #cdsjam team raised a whopping $207,670 for the Children’s Grief Centre 🤯! Fun story, I play Alberta Bound by Paul Brandt every time I come home from a long road trip and to finally see @imalbertabound play the song live is a dream come true. Thanks Craig! Thank you #jamboreeforcharity! #yyc#countrymusic
Suit night with the boys but what happened after these pictures will live with me forever...
Was in absolute awe listening to all the inspiring stories from the @cansportshall’s Class of 2019. We have some amazing athletes in Canada and I felt so privileged just to have been in the presence of greatness, on and off the field. These stories inspire me not only to be a better athlete, but better person. Congratulations Hall of Fame Class of 2019! 🏆☝🏽
