  • Secret passion/ i.e. are you artistic, like cooking etc?
  • I play the Violin
  • Guilty Pleasure
  • Ice-cream

  • Breakfast! I can’t just pick one food.
  • Favourite Beverage
  • A Banana Protein Smoothie
  • What helps you get up on those early mornings to train?
  • When it’s cold, dark and I’m tired, it’s sometime hard to get up in the mornings. I love racing when I’m fit and at my peak, so training and getting up early both my motivator and a necessity if I want to be my best. I’m also motivated by breakfast! After training, breakfast seems so much more satisfying.
  • Do you have a fitness goal?
  • My next fitness goal is to complete the Molokai to Oahu 52km channel crossing on a paddleboard. This is a big goal for me as the distance alone will be a huge mental and physical challenge. My goal after that is to reclaim my Surf Ironwoman Series title over the summer season.
  • What are you doing to achieve it
  • I’m am currently doing a large volume of aerobic training. My training week consists of long board paddles, swimming, running, gym and also the odd yoga or Pilates class.
  • Deepest fear
  • Definitely sharks. I’m in the wrong sport for that. And also disappointing people.
  • Describe your perfect Sunday
  • I would try my best to sleep in, then I would walk over and go for a dip in the ocean. I would come home, make a delicious breakfast then catch up with friends for coffee. I would do an activity with friends during the day, then maybe go to the fruit and vegetable markets and then make a slow cooked roast for dinner and relax. I love it when I am able to do a ‘no car Sunday’.
  • What are you known for amongst your friends
  • Ask them they’ll enjoy telling you all my quirks
  • Interesting fact that no one knows about you
  • One of my feet is a size and a half bigger than the other
  • Why do you value nutrition
  • I value nutrition because when I eat well it makes me feel great. Good food allows me to train hard, concentrate during the day and race well too. I also just love eating good food!
  • Secret to balancing health, social life and work/study
  • I’m still working on this one as it’s a challenge to fit everything in all the time. I think making a plan is the best way to do this. I schedule in training, work and also social occasions into my week. I also make sure I have some down time to rest and relax.
  • 5 items always in your shopping basket
  • Almond milk, Natural yogurt, Bananas, Avocado, Eggs
