1: Red Dog AOTM, how do you feel about that?
I feel lucky as there are always some fantastic results from the club each month when Trent’s email goes out.
2: What attracted you to the squad?
The people, everyone is very welcoming at races etc. My kids in particular like the bacon sambos on offer at the tent after races.
3: If you were Red Dog coach for the week, what would you do differently?
Less swimming and more running.
4: How much training do you do at the moment?
Around 10hrs a week works for me, generally something every day. It’s a balancing act with spending time with my kids and spending time drinking coffee at the coffee shop with the boys.
5: Least favourite session and why?
Swimming, by a considerable way.
6: If you had one wish, what would it be?
To have 3 more wishes.

Excuses are like assholes, everyone has one and they stink.

Train consistently through the year. I found it took a few years to build up to a competitive level.

On the sporting front I’m running the Tokyo marathon in Feb and hopefully the duathlon worlds in Adelaide next year.
10: Who would be your ideal training partner?
11: What do you do outside of triathlons?
