My first triathlon was: Warringah Triathlon Race with a swim in South Creek in Narrabeen Lagoon, a run across Pittwater Road back along Garden St to transition in Apollo Place and then laps on the bike past the old drive-in at Warriewood. They were the days when you didn't need Police approval and marshalls at every intersection.
My favourite triathlon is: Nepean Triathlon - Australia's oldest triathlon with a 1km swim, 30km bike, 10km run
My favourite training session is: A Warringah Tri Club race.
My best race tip is: Work your strengths and be aware of where your main competitors are in the race.
The highlight of my triathlon journey is: being part of the Warringah Tri team at NSW Club Champs and always having WTC on the podium.
I love being a member of Warringah Triathlon Club because: of the above highlight and the friendly relaxed atmosphere at all the WTC events with a balance of the regular legends that are really competitive and the newcomers doing their first Tri with everyone so willing to help.
My best advice to anyone new to the sport is: You don't have to be the best at every part of Triathlon, just do your best overall and you will get good results and enjoy it.
Something I wish I knew when I first started in the sport is: Focus on technique improvements to improve for your weaker area rather than increased training and keep a balance of the training between swimming, cycling and running.
