I mean, what else are you gonna do in between sets of @sdubstrength quarantine weight program?? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ A couple ways I’m staying busy and happy these days: training at home, cooking, and baking. I’d say our first loaf of bread turned out 👍👍 #quarantinelife #fresheats #trainingforthesoul #👩‍🍳#rbcolympian

What’s on the horizon? 🌤 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ A lot of change has happened over the past few days. There has been so much information to take in on what is happening, what to do, where to go, and what the future may hold. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ For now, our community of Canadian paddlers must head home to Canada. We are not sure what is on the horizon. One thing is certain, we are taking everything in stride and supporting each other as a team. Right now, I am focusing on living in the moment and focusing only on what I can control. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ To anyone reading who’s normal routine has been affected: Stay safe, be smart, live calmly, spend time outdoors, practice some new cooking/baking skills, and support your friends and family in this challenging time 😌

@canfund @150women surprised myself and some other WKCAN teammates today on #IWD2020 here at training camp! We were all treated to an amazing brunch from @canfund and @lizziebee_23. Words can’t describe the feeling of belonging to the CANFund family. They are giving me a HUGE boost 💪 If you have the chance, please visit their website and consider donating, or look at their auction which closes tonight!

@rbc and #rbctrainingground has helped me turn dreams into goals and goals into reality. Dreams that little Lani couldn’t even think possible. I’m so excited to have become apart of the @rbc family back in 2016 and to have them by my side during this important year. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Visit www.rbctrainingground.ca to check out the nearest event and to register today. I encourage you to challenge yourself and dream of what could be possible! @rbc is all about helping athletes on their way or helping them find their way. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Back to basics and sticking with routine ✨ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ These are the things that keep me feeling human during the holidays! We are home from training camp down south, which means lots of time in the gym, in the pool, on the street, and on the snow 🏋🏽‍♀️🏊🏼‍♀️🏃🏼‍♀️🎿 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #sprintkayak #training #rbcolympian #newyear #backtobasics #lifts #cleans @burloakcanoeclub

2 days ago @canfund surprised myself (and many other WK!) with support through their @150women campaign. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I was so surprised and grateful. It truly came at the best time, and it feels so special that my goals are being supported by Canadian women. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you don’t already know, CANFund is a Canadian charity that supports athletes competing on the World stage. They are made up of 5 people working their magic to raise lots of money. If you want to support athletes but aren’t quite sure how, I encourage you to check out the CANFund Instagram and website, MyCANfund.ca and consider donating. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ No one achieves success without the support of others! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #150women #canfund #canadianathletes #kayak #canada #togethertotokyo #beepic

F A L L F E E L I N G S 🍂 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Over the past few months I started using a @bestselfco journal. I wanted to keep track of all the little things that I believe are key to achieving any goal, big or small. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Every morning and night you have to write what or who you are grateful for. Sometimes I like to look back and see everything I wrote over the past week or month. Most times I point out a specific person that has made a difference for me, and I write down their name under “tonight I am grateful for...” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Today seemed like a good day to say thank you to anyone who has taken the time out of their day to call me, grabbed a coffee, gave their advice, listened to my worries and thoughts, gave their shoulder to lean on, helped me up or gave me a kick in the butt! You know who you are.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 📷: @jackgleahy ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #happythanksgiving #fallfeelings #grateful #rbcolympian

Fall means more time for reflection and pause...🧘‍♀️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ and more time for oat milk cappuccinos 😍 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ @coffeecanoecanada

@rbc has helped me over the past 3 years achieve great things through the amazing program #rbctrainingground . I finished this program with 🥇🥇for @teamcanada @lima2019juegos Pan Am Games. Now, I have the privilege to cheer on the 100 National finalists compete in Calgary this weekend in the National Final!! I’m pumped to share this moment with them and excited to see who will come out on top. Good luck to all!

Returned home a few days ago after an amazing @lima2019juegos followed by a short but jam packed trip to all of Peru’s “must-sees”. Peru, you are amazing. From the delicious food, to the bus rides at 4,300m 🤢, you did not disappoint!
