Triathlon, but interested in doing all types of sport
I enjoy every second of my training, but when I get a day off I love spending it on the sofa in my Winnie The Pooh-onesie!
Most embarrassing sport moment:
I had to pee during the cycling section of my first triathlon. At the time I didn't know that 99% of triathletes actually do that. The most embarrassing part is that I now find it a 'normal' thing to do during a race, just like my co-triathletes. Little secret of a triathlete...
Proudest sport moment:
Without any background in swimming, cycling and/or running, I was physically capable in just one year's time to complete my first Ironman and cross the finish line in a good, fit state.
