NO KEY - PUSH TO START

A massive throwback - WAAAY BACK - to this date (Jan 11) in 2010. My very first local Skeleton race (Calgary, AB @winsportcanada ) some @alberta_skeleton hardware and one seriously epic high-five that will transcend time! A wonderful memory that fills my heart with such pride & reminds me to remember just how far we truly travel on our journeys in life. 🙏🏼

It’s not an optical illusion - the 2018 Winter #Olympic Games are just one month away! Who else is ready to cheer for @teamcanada so loud that they’ll hear us in PyeongChang, South Korea!🙋🏼‍♀️🇨🇦 If you’re keen to follow it all check out the full competitive schedule online at 👉🏼www.pyeongchang2018.com

Can you believe it? 2017 has come to a close! Over the last three decades I have had the incredible privilege of travelling all over the world - but my “home sweet home” is always #CANADA. Today, as many people set their intentions for the year to come - I want to, instead, acknowledge my past and the amazing places (& people within them) in which/ with whom I have lived, learned, loved, lost and grown tremendously: 1. Brandon, Manitoba (via George Dinsdale, Flickr) 2. Windsor, Ontario 3. Regina, Saskatchewan 4. Calgary, Alberta (via @neil_zee) *and of course, my latest homestead: 5. Whistler, British Columbia (via @dlmccolm ). Here’s to relentlessly chasing dreams, snuggling our tribe members extra long and to enjoying all the little things for what they truly are - the moments that shape our entire being. #HappyNewYear 2018, you amazing Canadians - go create the life you want and deserve! • • • #cassiehawrysh #recharge #renew #focus #instadaily #instagood #selfie #fitness #sipsiphooray #recoverywin #recovery #thatsmile #ambassador #athlete #follow #mountaingirls #shorthair #pixiecut #dopeaf #Pixie360 #newyearseve #newyearwishes #shorthairdontcare #manitoba #saskatchewan #ontario #homeiscanada #canadiangirl

Move over “duck lips”, the latest & greatest for 2018: “parrot lips”. 👄 While casually chatting on the phone today ... perhaps it was the @2xu_canada tights?! • • • #birdgirl #parrot #welcometothejungle #yyj #victoria #westcoastbestcoast #businesscall #whistlercoach #longdistance #overseas #grounded #athlete #coach #canada #cassiehawrysh #beautifultough #butterflygarden #exploremore #instagood #motivate #girlsrule #teamcanada #victoriaviews #girlsandbirds #parrotsofinstagram

in the end, she became more than she expected. she became the journey, and like all journeys, she did not end. she simply changed directions and kept going. - r.m.drake • • • #PBCM #cassiehawrysh #throwbackthursday #tbt #recharge #renew #focus #instadaily #instagood #friendshouse #selfie #fitness #calgary #yyc #sipsiphooray #recoverywin #recovery #thatsmile #ambassador #athlete #hellobc #follow #mountaingirls #girlswholift #shorthair #pixiecut @pixiepalooza #dopeaf #Pixie360 #shorthairdontcare @pbchocolatemilk #coach

Runaway train never going back. • • Slightly off the beaten path - and across a suspension bridge (yay!) - you will find the site of several abandoned box cars. In its current state: frozen in time and an ever changing expressive space for local graffiti artists ... at first the scene somehow felt neither here nor there. I was impossibly mesmerized by the duality of ruin and creation. The more I stared, the more I felt. The twisted metal, the neon paint; the rush of the Cheakamus River directly below. Total chaos juxtaposed with total control ... the scene spoke from every angle. A sight to truly behold. [Whistler Train Wreck - full story below] • • • The story explains the crash occurred in 1956. The wreck happened in a rock cut and there were three boxcars loaded with lumber jammed in there, blocking the line. The PGE railway equipment wouldn't budge them so the company approached the Valleau family. The Valleaus took their logging machinery (a couple of D8 Cats) down to the site, put a hitch (luff) on with two moving blocks to the boxcar and pried them out. They then dragged the cars up the track and into the forest, where they lie today. Which explains the fact that there is no damage to the trees around the wreck. The train was assembled in Lillooet by John Millar, conductor of that train. Millar told the story to Howard Valleau, as follows: The train had four engines. There was a mistake made on the tonnage of the train, making it too heavy and they had to split the train to get up the grade to Parkhurst (on Green Lake); and by doing that they were put behind schedule. Because of this, they were trying to make up time by speeding through an area under repair on the tracks. The speed limit was only 15 mph (24 km/h). The fourth engine turned a rail, causing the train wreck. They checked the tape in the engine, which told how fast they were going - the crew had thought the speed was 15mph, but in fact it was 35 mph (56 km/h).

Earlier today, I told my old mattress, “It’s not me, it’s you.” Now I’m #InMyCasper and I’m never going back. 💤 I knew I was missing a crucial piece of the sleep puzzle - thank you @casper - I now have the bed of my dreams. So, if anyone needs me, I’ll be here ... repeatedly pressing snooze. • • • #casper #sleep #weekendvibes #easylikesundaymorning #newlove #countingsheep #loveatfirstsnooze #visualambassador #snuggle #love #rest #dreams #bed #pillows #communityfirst #casseffect #dreamadream #foam #vscocam #sleeptight #recovery #cassiehawrysh #athletelife

As promised, the solo #PrairieGirl mountain adventures have begun. Stepping WAY out of my comfort zone - and into a pair of skis. This means owning my awkward ski-boot walk, talking to new friends on gondolas/chairlifts, figuring out where the heck I am on the endless options of @whistlerblackcomb routes, committing to more french fries; less pizza and humbly accepting that my (Skeleton-focused) legs have some serious strength to gain if I ever wanna go fast! Seeking more friends who don’t mind hanging with me on the greens, can give me some pointers and who are keen on jokes, selfies & après. ✌🏼See ya’ll mountainside! • #whistler #mountaingirl #workinghard #airholefacemasks #hardlyworking #whistlerblackcomb #swipe #morningmotivation #beautifulbritishcolumbia #cassiehawrysh #coach #tourist #isthisreallife #funjob #growsport #canadianathlete #teamcanada #headfirst #bestteam #fastestsportsonice #squadgoals #whatnerves #frenchfriesnotpizza #gofast #FindYourZeal #ThroughOurLenses

Hands up if you made first chair this morning! 🙋🏼‍♀️ I’m lucky to have great friends to encourage early mornings and to inadvertently test our steep grade ski skills on a run marked “more difficult” ... the sign should have said “much harder than you’re expecting” but we survived! 📷: @ryeandtea#whistler #slidingcentre #skeleton #workinghard #hardlyworking #blackcomb #morningmotivation #beautifulbritishcolumbia #cassiehawrysh #coach #tourist #isthisreallife #funjob #growsport #canadianathlete #teamcanada #headfirst #bestteam #fastestsportsonice #squadgoals #whatnerves #frenchfriesnotpizza #gofast #FindYourZeal #ThroughOurLenses

Proudly coaching Team Canada during the first NAC races of the 2017/18 season this weekend. From the other side of the sled, I see this world in a very unique way. It’s exciting, fun and challenging, but best of all - I get to witness athletes learn & grow (hopefully in part because of my guidance 😏) right before my eyes. Race number 1 was a blast. Let’s do it again tomorrow! • • #Athlete2Coach #skeleton #provincial #newjob #coachcass #samesamebutdifferent #womenincoaching #northameriancup #newadventure #headfirst #development #nextgen #cassiehawrysh #casseffect #future #coaching #whistlerlife #becauseisaidso #slidingintothenextphase #whistler #dowhatyoulove #createchange #causeandeffect #yesican #teach #learn #grow #NKP2S #teamcanada #bcsdc
