It’s been an amazing and busy week in Canmore. With tons of press conferences, interviews and team meetings followed by tremendous racing action and Sara Renner’s fabulous bronze medal in the classic sprint here at the best stop on the world cup circuit: Canmore. The town celebration included putting snow on two blocks of main street for the whole weekend and so so many good times were had on that snow by many people and it looked really magical.
Fast and Female jumped at the chance to ski in town and we had 100 girls out for a very unique and fun event. Our sponsor COLD-FX sponsored the live performance by international group “Drum Cafe” was really cool and we boogied hard with our local Zumba instructor, Maria, leading the way. A great warm up! Check out our zany instructors in the photos below.
Brooke Gosling, Sara Renner, Rhonda Jewett, Sarah Daitch, Madeleine Williams, Mallory Deyne, Sekwan Trottier, and Sarah Murphy were rock star BBFF’s (Best Buy Fast Females) and our great friends Kikkan Randall and Liz Stephen, American Olympians who are spreading the F&F love across North America brought their amazing energy. The BBFF’s are what make the events so memorable and the girls get to meet some incredible role models.
Special thanks to the BBFF’s, volunteers, Best Buy, COLD-FX, The Lambert Bros, The Jocabecca Foundation, Lululemon, Buff, The Canmore Rotary Club and everyone who made this event possible. Dan Roycroft’s time and images are much appreciated – check them out below.
I haven’t had that much fun since… the last Fast and Female event!
Friday I’m off to the Opening Ceremonies and my first race will be Wednesday, February 17th in the classic sprint.
