The season’s over, I competed in 4 tournaments and I’m still hanging in there so I’m marking off this goal as done. Now to make plans for the next season.

And the UNB Shield was a sweet spot for me as I surpassed my expectations and came in 3rd in the overall mixed Open Foil event. Cool! This is my very first open mixed event medal – and I hope it won’t be the last.
Well, I participated in the Fundy Open over the weekend (that’s me on the left) and came out ok. Middle of the pack in the Open Mixed event and gold in the women’s foil. So now, I’m looking forward to the next tournament. Maybe the UNB Shield next weekend…
With the new year comes new resolve. Although I’ve been fencing for about 15 years (and foil is my weapon of choice) I’ve been kind of on hiaitus for the past couple of seasons – not really training or participating in tournaments. When I stopped I had to stop because I was burnt out on the sport (training, coaching, competing, managing our Canada Games team…) but the hardest part now is getting re-motivated to return. I trained last fall for a couple of months and competed in a tournament but haven’t really committed to returning since late October. I don’t want to quit the sport so I don’t know why I don’t go in to the club every week. Surely I can’t be that lazy.
So my goal is going to be attend at least 2 more tournaments this season which in turn is going to require a commitment to training.
