My proudest triathlon moment… Finishing my first Ironman

My bike is… a Felt time trial & a Felt roady (I’m a real fan of Felt bikes)

My favourite training location is… Galston Gorge and Berowra Waters for the bike and the running track from Kirribilli to Balmoral via Taronga Zoo

My coach is always telling me to… keep my swim sessions consistent

I relax before a race by…. I’m pretty relaxed anyway and usually have a smile on my face before the race.

I am happiest when… I’m training with fellow Balance Tri Club members & it’s all going to plan

When I was a child I wanted to… have super powers

My most treasured possession is… my time trial bike

My last meal would be…. too many favourites, so it would take some time to get through all my last meals and perhaps I could get a few triathlons in along the way!

I’m inspired by…. people who give it a go
