Blue Cheese: Good with everything, but I'm lactose Intolerant
For breakfast, I usually have: Almost every day I have a PB& J sandwich
After a long day of training, my favorite meal is: Nothing beats a dozen hot wings.
My best triathlon advice is: During the first 5 – 10 minutes of training, ignore the discomfort, it gets better without even noticing. If I did not get this advise, I never would have made it though the discomfort of warming up.
What was I thinking when I signed up for my first race: Terrified I would finish last
