Triathletes I admire: Peter Reid (3-Time World Ironman Champion), as through hard-work, discipline, and belief in himself, he became the best in the world for performing well on races when it mattered most -- he was an amazingly consistent top contender at Ironman,....always. Simon Whitfield (one of the best triathletes in the world, who is an excellent role model for healthy living, and acting environmentally responsible), Jasper Blake (a super fun, non-pretentious, friendly guy -- and an amazing athlete), Jonathan Caron (I respect Jonathan's work ethic, and his unselfish nature to help others), Lisa Bentley (one of the best Ironman athletes in the world, and spokesperson for Cystic Fibrosis -- a disease which she has herself)

Favorite Foods: Fruit smoothie, slice of gluten-free homemade bread with natural peanut butter, and banana.
