Professional Electrical Contractor (PEC), and long-time Mikes Electric partner, Heather Myers, rode a celebratory cycle along the Icefields Parkway from Jasper, to Lake Louise, to honour 20 years with the company.
“The best work Monday I ever had,” said Myers of her 232-kilometre ride.
“Minus the wind, and two thunderstorms I rode through, but they just make you stronger mentally.”
“I think it says a lot about a person to be with the same company for this long, in this day and age,” she said when describing why she chose to celebrate this accomplishment with a 10-hour Rocky Mountain ride.
Active in sports from an early age, Myers said she completed her first triathlon at age thirteen, and started running marathons 17 years ago.
“So much of my life is based around being active,” Myers said.
“I tend to remember a lot of events in my life that I have seen through sport.”
“Riding ‘the parkway’ from Jasper to Lake Louise is hard in general. As you are riding through the mountains, and through various weather conditions.”
“It gave me lots of time to think of what I have accomplished in the last 20 years, and the changes I have seen in our area.”
Health, endurance, and travel are at the top of her list when asked to consider the rewards of training and participating in these mentally and physically grueling competitions.
“You’d laugh if I said it was relaxing to me,” said Myers.
“I also love to push myself for distance covered.”
“I have been fortunate enough to see various places through my racing events, and you meet so many people from around the world that share a common interest.”
“I find that so many areas you can run or bike, you get to see a lot more of what the area has to offer, rather than zipping by in a car.”
Myers said she spends all of her holiday time either racing, or training, for this sport.
When the COVID-19 pandemic hit, all races for Myers were either cancelled, or pushed back, to 2021 or 2022.
“With no races at all this year, and the flexibility, it gave me the perfect opportunity to enjoy the parkway,” she said.
“In the meantime, I continue to train, and start to change my focus to Ultraman Canada in 2022.”
