MICHELLE GRAUF

 

Congratulations to Michelle on being selected as Red Dog’s Athlete of the Month November 2020 
Michelle wins the award this month for her commitment to training and club culture. Well done!


A big thank you to our sponsors for donating this month’s prizes.
  1. 1.Red Dog AOTM, how do you feel about that?

    Honoured, privileged, and shocked!

     

     

    2.What attracted you to the club?

    A very special girl friend who is no longer here with us introduced me to Triathlons. I looked up Triathlon Clubs & Reddog come up 1st. Had no idea what I was getting myself into. Some people thought I was crazy joining as they thought it was for the Elite. I can tell you now it caters to everyone. I have never looked back. Reddog is more than a club it is a community, and we all look out for each other.

                                                                                                                                                                                     

    3.How much training do you do at the moment?

    5 sessions – 2 runs 2 bike and 1 swim

     

    4.What’s your favourite RDTT session and why?     

     Bike because I get to be with awesome training buddies. Don’t mind a good coffee at the end of the ride!

     

    5.If you had one wish, what would it be?

     To go faster!

     

    6.Favourite motivational quote? 

    “ You’re here for a good time, not a long time” – get out of your comfort zone and have a crack!

      

    7.The one bit of advice I’d give to a newbie is… “Trust the process”. The best thing I did when I signed up to Cairns 70.3 was do a program with Trent. He got me across that finish line, just trust the process!

     

    1. What’s your next event?

    HELL OF THE WEST – doing a Team with some great mates. We have the best Team name “Hold the Bus”. I then need to work out when I will do my next 70.3

     

    9.What do you do outside of triathlons?

    Balance is key between personal & professional. Work plays a big part of it and I am lucky to love what I do. Family time which currently consists of cricket with my son Naite. Travel when that starts back up….

     

    1. Who’s your favourite sparring partner in the squad and why?  Not so much sparring partner but I have 3 training buddies – Joey he just cracks me up and makes any session hilarious. T Dog aka Therese keeps it all real & Evelyn she was key to me getting to my 1st half Iron Man – she has the patience of a Saint.

     

    1. What’s your one guilty pleasure?

    Cheese and wine any day of the week
