It's Show Time! My Reality TV Debut!

Remember way back in September when I spent one epic Sunday PR-ing my half marathon, while running with Canadian Silver medalist Helen Upperton, and shooting a reality TV show?!


Well now it is time for my episode to finally air!! And with all that will happen this week and all that I now know about my recovery - I gotta admit I am pretty damn proud of this half marathon PR.

So if you guys are on the west coast, just check your local Shaw TV listings. For the rest of us (myself included) The folks at Make It Happen will be streaming the video live tonight Monday January 28th at 8:30 Mountain time! That means you can tune in anywhere in the world - just make sure you account for the time difference in your neck of the woods! Just check out the link below!!


I have not seen it yet, so I will be watching it for the first time with all of you.

I feel slightly queasy about seeing myself on TV. Mostly because I sound like an overgrown 6 year old and that sneaky little Olympic Athlete made me cry several times during the interview process. BLAH!! Questions about my amazing family get me EVERY TIME! So...I am just hoping I was pretty crier, and I don't look like a hot sobby mess!  (**Cliff I am blaming you if you edit me poorly hahaha xo**)


Anyways, I am really excited to see the final product. And feel so incredibly lucky to be give this opportunity to share my many misadventures with all of you in this way!

Thank you Zoe, Helen, Cliff, and Alysha for such a wonderful experience and allowing me to be part of something so awesome! And above all for helping me spread the word about Heart Disease, Breast Cancer, and Kicking Booty Darwinian Fail Style!!

Love Your Favourite Darwinian Fail,
Krysten

  11. You're sooo welcome and I really hope it lives up to your expectations! (yes a few tears may have snuck in there but it's all part of what makes your story so incredible and we're proud to have you be a part of the show!)

    One note to everyone who wants to watch on livestream - make sure you log in early so you don't miss the start of the show! Krysten's story is third (save the best for last :)

    Enjoy!
