🛫 Back across this big beautiful country. Toronto see ya in a few.⠀ ⠀ Tune into @cbcsports tomorrow (Dec 8) to watch the luge women of the world battle it out in the Calgary WC. Ill be calling the action so you'll also get to have ME in your living room :)

I had such a blast calling my first luge WC LIVE from Toronto yesterday for @cbcolympics .Calling the race live across the nation gave me back that adrenaline filled endorphin high (that you get sliding, and I missed so bad!). It did make me miss racing but its fun to step back into the world of luge in a different capacity. ⠀ •⠀ A big standout moment for me was @ecsweens podium. She broke her back in her last run at the Olympics in PyeongChang. I don't want to put words in her mouth but I know she had a really hard summer coming back physically/mentally/emotionally. The only reason I feel like I have the ability to know or speak about how she felt is because Ive been exactly there. Every word of your @washingtonpost article rang so true to me it sent literal shivers down my spine. I know what its like having to come back after breaking your back. ⠀ •⠀ Seeing her get off the track with tears in her eyes and say "Im going to cry" (yes I heard you on camera!!) ... well you MADE ME CRY in the middle of the @cbc.sports editing booth!! Because I Remember what that feels like and I couldn't be happier for you. It really hit close to home today. I am so proud of you for your comeback, hold that feeling close to your heart, it is part of your journey now. ⠀ •⠀ This photo is from Winterberg WC 2016 when I raced the team relay after breaking my back 8 months earlier. This is the moment I proudly stood back on the podium after an incredibly hard and life changing journey. Ya gave me ALL the feels girl @ecsweens. Phew. ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ •⠀ •⠀ •⠀ •⠀ •⠀ #BestLifeProject #ChampionHer #TheJonesLife #Inspiresport #inspiremovement #StrongisBeautiful #DontGiveUp #BeOlympic #WeAreWinter #TeamCanada #equipecanada #DoWhatYouCant #strong #determination #dedication #success #motivation #ViveLeSportFéminin #WeAreWinter #GamePlan #livewild⠀ ⠀

It’s no secret I am voting YES for the 2026 games to be hosted in CALGARY. Because of the '88 games, I was able to compete for my country every day for over a decade. The legacy that the '88 games left forever changed my life. ⠀ ⠀ I believe that hosting the games will bring together this city, leave a new legacy of infrastructure, programs, and opportunity for the next generations to come, introduce a new energy into our communities and allow Calgary to teach the world what hosting the Olympic should look like. Let us show the world how to do it right. ⠀ ⠀ Remember to go and vote today.⠀ #YES #2026

Todays news highlight: the US army bought cups that were each 1280$. Why? To keep their coffee warm. ⠀ ⠀ Someone should send them this article and tell them all of these cups are just as epic.. and about 1250$ cheaper. ⠀ ⠀ Who doesn’t want to save some trees, keep your coffee hot, and look good doing it? Yeah thought so. Link in my bio for your new favourite to go cup. Oh and your fam jam probably wants some for Christmas too! ⠀

Sitting all day does not make my body or back very happy. So whenever I am travelling for conferences, I always try and start the day going for a walk and finding a spot to do some yoga. ⠀ ⠀ I always seem to find the most unexpected wonders in new cities when I do this. Sometimes its epic coffee spots, and sometimes its moments like this. ⠀ ⠀ In Miami, I was able to find a spot right along the water front, to watch the sunrise and stretch my body, before I stretched my mind at @iwfglobal @ey_global

Back Home. ⠀ ⠀ How lucky am I to feel like I have two homes now? Calgary mountains and NYC brownstones. ⠀ ⠀ After such an amazing conference, my brain is spinning. Today you’ll find me wandering around my neighbourhood breathing in the fresh air and trying to make sense of it all. ⠀ ⠀ Oh I’ll have a constant delicious coffee in my hand. It makes me legitimately devastated when I travel and the coffee is swill. Yes I am spoiled with great coffee here, yes I am a coffee snob, and yes I’ll own up to that. • • • • #nyceats #thisisoptimism #whentojump #empowered #chaseyourdreams #nycgo #seeyourcity #NYC #eatingNY #NGINYC #newforkcity #nycfood #ebdailypic #brooklynbased #manhattan #brooklyn #bigapple #newyorknewyork #williamsburg #bk

Just over here practicing for next years US Open. ⠀ ⠀ ⠀

I mean, I celebrate coffee most days. But apparently yesterday was coffees official day in the sun! ⠀ ⠀ In honour if one of my favourite beverages a photo of me enjoying my own sunbeam and a cup of the magical elixir in one of my favourite secret NYC coffee patios. ⠀ ⠀ On another note, I am writing up some coffee related articles for @saveurmagazine, so stay tuned for some more coffee themed content! ⠀ ⠀

28? Is that you I see? Its going to be a good year, I can feel it. ⠀ ⠀ ⠀

27⠀ Started it off with the van life in California, swam with best friends in Tofino, hiked to mountain cabins for christmas fires with family, lived in Hawaii for a month, lived in Korea for 2 months, lived in NYC for 7 months. And all the million moments in between. ⠀ ⠀ Became a chef, became a fiancé, became obsessed with living all around the world. ⠀ ⠀ Cheers to you 27, you were a grand adventure. ⠀ ⠀ 📸: @davidkarp

Thank you for all the birthday love and good vibes sent my way. They were received and felt and warmed my heart!! ⠀ I am beyond grateful for such wonderful people in my life.

Eye Spy with my little eye... ⠀ A new adventure approaching. ⠀ ⠀ Culinary school may be done, but my learning isn’t. ⠀ ⠀ You can find me at @saveurmag head office Test Kitchen for the foreseeable future!! ⠀ ⠀ 📸:@davidkarp⠀ ⠀

“We walk up the beach under the stars. We feel stretched, expanded to take in their compass. They pour into us until we are filled with stars, up to the brim.⠀ ⠀ This is what one thirsts for, I realize, after the smallness of the day, of work, of details, of intimacy—even of communication, one thirsts for the magnitude and universality of a night full of stars, pouring into one like a fresh tide.” ⠀ ⠀ ― Anne Morrow Lindbergh, Gift from the Sea⠀

You cant tell. But in this photo we are actually fully drenched in sweat. I mean DRENCHED. Like walked into an ocean. Oh NYC, you hot hot humid sweatbox you. Not all photos are what they seem 😂. ⠀ 📸: @davidkarp

Now thats NEXT LEVEL Farm to Table. ⠀ Vine to mouth. ⠀ ⠀ And yes. I literally have a bucket TIED to my waist for maximal raspberry picking efforts. Duh. ⠀ ⠀

Looking ahead to see what could be down the road for me...⠀ ⠀ I had a blast talking with Mike on the @whentojump podcast. We talked about how for the first time in my life, during culinary school, I stopped setting goals and looking towards to future and planning every detail to just focus on what was right in front of me. I had no idea what came next. I fully immersed myself and focusing on just being present in what I was doing this moment. ⠀ ⠀ It felt weird and uncomfortable. ⠀ ⠀ And likely the things that feel weird and uncomfortable are exactly what you need to be doing. ⠀ ⠀ The podcast is live today. Check it out. Link in Bio. ⠀ ⠀ 📸: @davidkarp ⠀ ⠀

How did I become a Chef?! WHAT!? Also, how did I end up on a podcast!? WHAT!?⠀ ⠀ Mike Lewis and I had a fun conversation together about life, lessons learned in sport and how they translate to the kitchen, and how I decided to take the leap and go to culinary school on his podcast @whentojump ⠀ Check it out! Have a listen. Share around. Anything your heart desires. LINK in my BIO.⠀ ⠀ 📸:@davidkarp⠀ ⠀
