Q: What makes you a Wahooligan?
A: I do every single one of my bike rides on the Wahoo KICKR and using the ELEMNT BOLT!
Q: What do you consider your greatest accomplishment?
A: My biggest accomplishment was learning to love the water. As a weak swimmer, often times, the water can be kind of dreadful in a triathlon but over the years my perspective has grown and improved. Now, I would say, that the swim is my favourite of the 3 disciplines!
Q: What do you consider your biggest professional accomplishment to date?
A: 2nd place in Kona, 2017
Q: Do you have any race day rituals?
A: I try to stay calm and centered and remind myself how big of a privilege it is and why I deserve to do well since I trained so hard.
Q: What are three training tip you would recommend to athletes?
A: 1. Recover as hard as you train
2. Training at race pace does not make race pace easier, training well above and below race pace makes race pace easier
3. There are no bad races, only bad perspectives. There is always something to learn and to grow from.
Q: What inspires and what motivates you to keep pushing and striving for personal greatness?
A: Personally, I am just interested in finding out what is possible for me, what my personal limits are, and I'm nowhere near that yet. Through this endeavor, I hope to inspire others to do the same!
Q: What do you love about Wahoo?
A: The power that the unit produces is very lifelike and accurate. The user interface is also very intuitive and easy to use. There are so many features that I thought I wouldn't use, then wished I had them, only to find out that they were already there. The company is also always looking to improve current technology. Sky's the limit!
