What is your best memory on the bike?

IRONMAN 70.3 Puerto Rico in 2013, my first ever non-draft race, with zero clue of how it would go and how I would ride a bike for 90km. I had the most amazing day and bike ride, leading off the bike with another athlete, winning the race with world champions and Kona winners amongst the field.

Describe a perfect training day.

Breakfast with a coffee > A sunrise run amongst the nature with clear skies and cool temperatures > A big second breakfast with another coffee > 3 hours in the saddle and getting aero around the roads of home > A big lunch > A nap > A big snack > A sunset swim in the lake at the bottom of the garden with (husband) Ben in the boat next me.

What is your pet peeve?

The people who say they’ll meet at 10 for riding but they eventually show up at 11. I’m 30kms into my ride by then!
