Three-time World Champion; two-time Olympian; Pan American Games medalist.
>>HOW I GOT STARTED
I did my first triathlon when I was seven years
old (Bermuda’s Iron Kids Triathlon). I won my
age group and was hooked.
>>HOW I TRAIN
A lot and often! I spend six months of the year
training in Stellenbosh, South Africa, and the
other six months in Boulder, Colorado. My routine
is busy and intense with roughly 25 hours of
training a week split between swimming,
cycling, running and the gym.
I eat a clean, healthy diet. Food is my fuel so
it needs to be nutrient dense and in large
quantities. I eat gluten free, mainly vegetarian,
stay away from highly processed food, eat
lots of nutrient-rich food and also make sure
to eat within 30 minutes of training.
>>HOW I GOT INSPIRED
In the ’90s, Bermuda hosted an ITU World
Cup. All of the best triathletes would race and
I went to watch and get photographs and
autographs. I have a really cool photo with
Greg Welch, who was the best in the world
then. Greg now works at Oakley and I’m
sponsored by Oakley. Thinking back to that
photo is funny because at the time I dreamed
of being an Oakley athlete and now, 15-plus
years later, I am!
>>WHAT I DO IN MY FREE TIME
My boyfriend Dan and I both really enjoy food,
so a big passion of ours is going to new restaurants and seeking out fun places to eat.
