I have been an athlete since eleven when I used to run 7 miles to school over a small mountain valley. Located off the West Coast in beautiful Cape Town, South Africa.
When it come to triathlon I am self taught and my first triathlon ever was the inaugural Ironman 70.3 New Orleans and my third triathlon ever was Ironman Florida 140.6. Personally I love the challenge of the full Ironman distance and plan to focus on that distance only.
Swim, bike and run has become part of my lifestyle and often train 2-3 times daily. I love everything about the sport and the "A" type personality that are attracted to this physical and mental sport.
I know I'm not the fasted kid on the block but am nowhere the slowest either. I have completed every single race that I've ever signed up for and always withing the cut-off times no matter how challenging the weather conditions have been.
