After doing a decent amount of cross country and playing hockey throughout childhood and high school. I started in Triathlon in 2011-12 when Devon convinced me to buy a road bike on eBay and enter the XOSIZE Tri series with him. After a season of short course racing Devon and I decided we would do a Half Ironman which I completed in Canberra at the end of 2012; It was agony, I tore my wetsuit pre swim, drank half of Lake Burley Griffin, had a panic attack mid swim, convinced myself I couldn’t take any nutrition in half way through the ride and bonked severely on the run. Somehow despite this I signed up for Geelong Half Ironman 3 months later.. The rest is history.
