Another 70.3 in the books! 🏊♀️🚴♀️🏃♀️
To be honest, I was very nervous going into this race for one reason only...the heat. I had a DNF at ironman whistler last year from heat stroke and was worried about that happening again.
Today was all about managing the heat and moving forward for me. Was it fast? No. I was looking forward to pushing myself today but instead I enjoyed the day, cheered on friends & strangers, and was happy. Bonus points for zero mechanicals or injuries!
So grateful to have my number 1 fan out there cheering me on in the heat all day! Thanks for all the support near & far! Felt so loved this weekend!
Congrats to everyone who raced this weekend, thanks to all the volunteers & @dynamicraceevents and HUGE thanks to my incredible coach @jasper_blake 💓

One of our favourite Okanagan red blends. ‘Compass’ from @vinamitecellars is a fantastic representation of a South Okanagan red wine... fruit forward with tons of depth and complexity, even at a young age. Plus the name is pretty good.
Down to our last bottle though, so we’re not sharing.

Hi! It’s been a while since I’ve introduced myself and there are many of you who are new followers so here’goes!
My name is Nicole.
I love winter almost as much as I love the summer. And yes, I’m wearing two hats!😄 I love winter but hate being cold! (My incredible sister-in-law made BOTH hats and also super warm scarves! Check out her Etsy store: MountainMaidGifts) I love animals and random facts. I also have a voracious appetite for reading- ever since I was 8; I can remember the moment I “learned” to read and all the letters became words. Now you can see how my farm got it’s name! 😊
I’ve grown up all my life on the family farm- growing is in my blood! This is the start of my third year growing cut flowers. I love flowers so much that I also manage my parents garden centre... or at least I try! 😄
This flower farm started because I wanted to grow my own flowers for my wedding. Last summer that dream came true! My husband, Jorden, works as a landscaper but uses almost every free moment helping me. This farm is a (mostly) one-woman-show! That’s why this year I have had to cut back a little- last summer nearly did me in. As an aside: YOU HAVE PERMISSION to take a step back and scale things down! You don’t always have to do more- less can be more! Life goes by too fast as it is. Soapbox moment over!
Growing cut flowers has proven to be addictive and I will be continuing for many years to come! 💐 When you support Storybook Flower Farm you directly support me and the operations required to bring you beautiful and nostalgic blooms each summer! So welcome to this “adventure-of-Tolkien-proportions” that I get to share with you here! 💕Nicole .
