Last shift as a Standard First Aider yesterday at the #Manitoba
Highland Gathering with @rileymdodds.
In September I will continue my volunteering and become a Medical First Responder. I love helping out in the #community
and being able to assist in many situations with St John Ambulance.
for this #training
. I actually had to use it a few nights ago when I got home to find a neighbor on the ground outside in a pile of rocks and a pool of blood. She tripped and fell and cut open her forehead a good 4-5 inches across. I was able to deal with it calmly, get 911, and keep her safe until help came. It’s training you hope to never use, but so glad I can use it when I need to. Everyone should get First Aid training! 🚑🏥

One happy day today for me. I was marshalling volunteering #raceforlife2018
in Edinburgh. .
I really loved each minute there. It was my first time marshalling ever. The atmosphere was so relaxing that I wasn’t caring about my Latvian accent when I was cheering runners on . .
So the crazy 😅Latvian marshall number 4 was giving high fives to everyone with her big blue foam hand even to serious runners. .
Inspiring race ... as my dad is cancer survivor I know how it feels ....one runner sticks in my memory . She came over and hugged so hard. Then she was running away I noticed that she was a cancer survivor on the back on her shirt .......
you made my day as well . It was great to see you one of my training buddies out supporting other runners today. Thanks for supporting me in my marshalling point number 4 for 10 minutes. .
Thank you #cancerresearchuk
for opportunity to cheer and support others. Glad if I helped in any way . .

Every finish is a great finish. To see people suffer relentlessly all the way to the end wow! What an amazing experience this race is. I feel so grateful for the opportunity to witness it. For 7 years I have followed it online, relentlessly refreshing the twitter feed and watching the live feed. To be smack in the middle of it was just surreal. Being able to volunteer at an aid station and play a small part in people making it to the finish was incredibly enjoyable and also infinitely rewarding. Meeting the athletes and ambassadors of the sport was infinitely motivation and I can’t wait to get involved again. If you have ever thought about volunteering at a race but haven’t t pulled the trigger, do it. You won’t regret it. #ws100 #westernstates100 #trackworkout #placer #placerhighschool #rewarding #grateful #amazing #trailrunning #ultrarunner #ultrarunner #ultrarunning #volunteer @ajoneswilkins
Foi há 7 anos. Um pé que saiu do estribo. Depois, o segundo. Um galope que não devia ter acontecido. Uma parede de betão. E eu, sem toque (capacete). Assim que a minha cabeça bateu contra a parede àquela velocidade, tudo ficou escuro. Naquela sala de urgências, deitada numa maca, rezei com todas as minhas forças para que aquele
Raio-X não me dissesse o que eu temia quando, deitada, mal conseguia mexer qualquer membro. E não disse. Foram as palavras do médico “Por um centímetro, safaste-te. És uma sortuda”. Aquele dia ficou gravado em mim. Voltei a montar várias vezes, mas já nada era igual. Ontem, pela primeira vez desde 2011, montei. Mal subi, o ajudante retirou logo a corda de segurança. Sem que eu pedisse. Quando desci, e à conversa com o dono dos cavalos, ele disse-me assim “Sei que já andaste muito a cavalo. No momento em que pegaste nas rédeas, vi logo”. Afinal, não perdi tudo. Que paixão enorme... Que felicidade gigante. É desta que não desisto do sonho. 🌿🙏🏻

Since Wednesday (the day Trump signed the executive order on family separation), the number of children held in the Tornillo detention facility has tripled from 98 to nearly 300. The tent city is meant to hold 4,000. ✨
This. Is. Not. Over. ✨
Many parents have already been deported while children remain detained. Many parents are still detained. Most families are still not reunited. ICE continues to break families apart, families who have been in this country for years. This is just the tip of the iceberg. ✨
This morning, @beet__rice
+ I joined hundreds of people who were standing up and speaking out over the human rights violations happening right now within our borders. Families, government officials, actors, Dreamers, activists (yes, that 3rd picture is Dolores Huerta- still showing up for the people), artists were all there. People across all religions, political backgrounds, ages, ethnicities, abilities were there. ✨
Mi gente. Keep standing up. Keep speaking out. Keep taking action. ✨
In the words of Leonard Peltier “Silence they say is the voice of complicity. But silence is impossible. Silence screams. Silence is a message just as doing nothing is an act.” ✨
If you want to know actions you can take now, I created a google doc for you that has tons of resources. You can access it using the link in my bio or going to bit.ly/2K1ku7b.
✊🏽 Keep loving, keep fighting! ✊🏽

Perfect day for volunteering and kayaking!!
Today I got to do 2 of my favorite things! Cooking & spending time with my sister queens! We prepared brunch for the families at the Ronald McDonald House! It was awesome to see first hand how RMD House provides amazing support for families with sick children! 💙
