Proudest triathlon moment: finishing the Alpe D'Heuz triathlon in 2012

My most treasured possession is: my engagement and wedding rings!

I'm happiest when: I am hanging out with my husband.........or when I cross the finish line, grab my medal and towel and head to the feeding station!

When I'm not training or racing you can find me: in bed!
