|Tell us about your sporting background and how you first got into triathlons||I’ve never been especially sporty but am always willing to give something a go. I played soccer in high school but haven’t been consistently active since then, and I wanted to set myself a goal that would challenge and inspire me.
I saw the Get Into Triathlon program advertised at Aqualink and it was always something I thought I could do. I did the Triathlon Pink at MSAC last January and really enjoyed it, so GIT was great at helping me focus my training and improve my transitions.
|Your favourite TRI discipline?||Swimming is my favourite discipline, and my strongest. I’m weaker on the bike and my run is terrible!|
|Goal race for the 2017/18 season?||No goal race in particular, just focussing on completing the 2XU Fun Tri Series, setting PBs each time, and getting my fitness right to move into sprint length next season.|
|Favourite holiday destination and why?||My favourite place in the world is Namibia in Southern Africa. It’s so vast and stunningly beautiful – the picture I’ve shared is from the top of Dune 45 in the Sossusvlei part of the Namib Desert.
In Australia I love Byron Bay – the great food, beaches and laid-back vibe makes it the perfect escape for a long weekend.
|Super power for a day||Supersonic speed – would definitely help with my habitual lateness and speed up my transition times!|
|What else keeps me busy outside of tri?||I work in Government Relations for a dairy company, and I’m also completing a Master of Communications. In winter you can generally find me on a mountain strapped into a snowboard (and falling badly!), and I love cooking, travelling and exploring new places.|
|What do you love about being a member of NunaTriClub?||The friendly and supportive atmosphere of the club – it makes what can be a very individual-focussed sport into a team sport. I love seeing those Nuna blues out on race day and having the Nuna cheer squad encouragement. It definitely helps me push through both in training and during a race.|
