Name and Nickname: Leanne Kelly. I don't really have a nickname, but friends will call me Kel or Kelly if they want to shorten my name.
Whats your real job: Pre-Operations Planner in the Oil & Gas Industry.
Favorite Workout: Swimmming, love it!! If only the swim component of a Tri was longer (and the run shorter)!! :-)
Biggest waste of your time: My daily commute of a minimum of 2hrs...thankfully Ive turned 'train' time into 'training' time and now cycle part way into work instead of catching the train
If you could travel anywhere, where would you go and why: Jamaica, when the Aussie cricket team is there.....because I love beach/sunshine and cricket!!
Favorite Celebrity: I dont have fav 'hollywood' celebs but Turia Pitt has to be on top of my 'favourite person list', what an amazing woman, I wish I had a tenth of her resilience and determination!!
Something people don't know about you: I have an extreme bird phobia and Im sure every bird in W.A knows this...and plays on it!! Hahaha!
Any quirky or superstitious things you do prior to a race: One strongbow cider the night before....its bad I know, but the alcohol helps me relax/sleep and the sugar is totally carb-loading!! Hahaha!!
Which is your favourite 4 legged creature and why: Turtle!!! OMG I love them!!!
Who or What in triathlon inspire you: The positive & supportive attitude from everyone Ive met since finding Triathlon...its completely infectious. But ultimately my coach Janine, every time she achieves a goal, it inspires me to reach that little further.
Favorite song: Powerfinger, Sunsets
Goal In triathlon: I want to say something inspiring like 'being able to keep the 'fun and enjoyment' alive so Im still doing this in 20yrs time'...which is completely true but my real goal is I want to do a full Ironman...just once....but sssshhhh its a secret :-)
What does a perfect day look like to you: For me its the simple things that make a day perfect, sun shining, great company on a run/cycle, followed by a swim, then relax with coffee at the beach.
What’s your guilty pleasure: Laying in bed long after the alarm goes off....this doesnt happen often at all but its complete bliss when it does.
