Where do you find inspiration to train and compete?

Triathlon is a very humbling sport. Some days your flying, some days you're a sack of potatoes. Learning to deal and cope with the ups and downs constantly tests my limits. I love it. There is something truly satisfying in pushing your limits and achieving what you didn't think was possible. My inspiration is my dad. For 15 years of my life I watched him fight cancer and not complain once. His favourite t - shirt he wore during chemo read; 'Every dam day, just do it.' So that's what I do.

Sports Supplem ents you take and when:
I take Balance Creatine before training. During training I take Balance Recover and Refuel.Post training I take Balance Natural Whey Chocolate & Balance Glutamine.
How did you get into this sport?
I missed out on the Olympics as a Football Fern and picked up a knee injury. I started swimming and was absolutely useless. I love a challenge so decided to teach myself how to swim by watching youtube videos. I figured triathlon is a sport where I would be in complete control of good I could be. Four years on I am coached by Olympic Triathlon coach Murray Healey edging myself closer to the dream.

Hardest part about being a Triathlete:
Trying to stay awake at work.

Best part about being a Triathlete:
The pain is brutal. It is the most bizarre love hate relationship. The physical and mental demands are ruthless but I swear lying on the finish line trying not to be sick; there is nothing more satisfying.

Upcoming events:
Olympic Distance World Champs Edmonton, Canada; 1st September.

70.3 World Champs Mont Treblant, Cana da; 7th September.
