How long had you been training for the race and what did you do to prepare?
This is actually the 3rd time I have competed (mad I know!). The first time, I dedicated 12 months to prepare as I had never done endurance events, been on a road bike, run over a mountain or paddled a kayak. I learned about nutrition and how to fuel on the go. There really is so much to learn and you never stop – there is always room for improvement!
What were your top 3 take-outs from the race?
Keep a sense of humour – praise your crew – thank the volunteers
What surprised you the most about completing the race?
Winning my category. The fact that I actually won, is like getting the whole cake and eating it cherries and all!
