How long have you been doing triathlons? I've been running for about 9 years. I added in swimming, cycling, and triathlon about 3 years ago.
Why do you like triathlons? There are a few reasons, but I guess the main one is that I think it's a very humbling sport, in the sense that when you're out there in a race or a hard workout, ultimately it's only you putting the effort. If you do badly, no one is to blame but you. And, at the end of the day, you only get out what you put in during training. It also helps clearing the mind.
Favorite post-workout or race meal: I like to have a bowl of plain greek yogurt mixed with raw honey and any fruit I have, like strawberries or blueberries.
Tell us something no one knows about you: When I was a teenager, I used to listen to black metal music. Though I never understood what they were saying when they sang!
