January Athlete of the Month 2010

What does Red Dog AOTM mean to you?
Having a good race at Goondi followed 2 days later with AOTM was all very exciting for me. It really does mean a lot because you are getting recognition for all the hard work you have put in.

Which triathlon distance best suits you and why?
Sprint distance – The shorter the better

If you had one wish what would it be?
To run as fast as Lucy and smash high gears like Penny

So far it would have to be Goondi 2010 - my first half. It was something I never thought I would do or enjoy doing.

Abolish Tuesday track sessions forever

Swimming because I suck!

What are your goals for 2010?
Buy all my own gear so I stop borrowing everyone else’s
