1.                       Red Dog AOTM, how do you feel about that?

 
Surprised!  Who'd have thought a 13 hour IM time would get me AOTM!
 
2.                       What attracted you to the club?
 
I was swimming at Yeronga training for Raby Bay & started chatting to Trent
                                                                                                                                                                                 
3.                       How much training do you do at the moment?
 
Nothing... done a few sessions post Cairns, trying to find motivation to come back, its been a big year. 
 
4.                       Least favourite session and why?
 
4 hour wind trainer session.  Boring AF
 
5.                       If you had one wish, what would it be?
 
To be an AFL footballer - that's clearly not going to happen so I guess I'll settle for a mediocre triathlete.

If it bleeds, we can kill it - Leigh Matthews 2001

Ha!  Don't change anything on race day - stick to the plan.
 
8.                       My next race is…
 
Noosa and Port Mac IM (I don't think Kaye know yet)
 
9.                       I couldn’t do what I do without…
 
My wifey... and our daughter.  
 
10.                   What do you do outside of triathlons?
 
Sit on the couch, watch AFL... and run a transport company.
 
11.                   What’s your one guilty pleasure?
 
Snakes alive... by the bag!!
