Who or What in triathlon inspire you: 1. My husband Allan Amey- he is absolutely amazing to train after working ridiculous hours and swims in winter in 14 degree temperature (no heated swimming pool at work)- he is such a gun xxx 2. Kate Bevilaqua- Yes Kate is my coach but seriously, Kate is incredible and the first female to win a Ultra-man Overall (beating the men!!) and I tell everyone I know about this achievement 3. Many age groupers, especially those who work, have young kids and other major responsibiliies that make time and stress bigger barriers to train and stay focused (its hard and it helps me keep centered) 4. Iron Nun 86yrs old- Sister Madonna “The only failure is not to try"
Favorite song: Have I told you lately I love you and Kick out the Epic MotherfuXker but I always thought it was Pick up the Effort XXXX (my treadmill song)
Goal In triathlon: Repeat my effort from Busselton 70.3 2016!!! Such a great experience and the support at the pub afterwards from GKE was awesome
What does a perfect day look like to you: No work, no housework, no cooking.. holiday: sleep in, train, relax by a tropical pool drinking cocktails and spending time with husband and kids
What’s your guilty pleasure: Chocolate but its a necessity and scotch and coke, again a must and Chips and Gravy mmmmm
Anything else you'd like to add: One day I WILL finish a full Ironman :)
