Swam in a teams triathlon and loved the atmosphere of the sport.
Decide what I want to achieve and sit down with my coach, Sid, to put steps in place as a pathway to my goals.
Work hard, play harder. (in my case, race harder).
My desire to be the best I possibly can.
Running in the Port Hills, Christchurch. Because there are endless trails to run, get an amazing view of our city, and nothing beats home.
Long run in the hills and yoga.
Bike - run reps, until they are over, then love them.
Having to get up so early for swimming, but in the end it gets it done.
Coolio - Gangster's Paradise.
Coming into triathlon at such a late age and having so much to learn. So I learn off the best at every chance I get to better myself as an elite athlete.
Work hard, play harder.
Come up with solutions to the negativity to turn it into positivity. Busy myself with friends or play music really loud.
Wanaka, NZ. A sprint triathlon around the streets at night, which are packed with spectators.
Have I got all my gear, thinking about the course, trying to relax.
The minute before the start.
Most of the time on the bike and run.
Have fun, the hard work has been done in training.
Go out and enjoy it.
Being addicted to lollies.
Rockin' Roller: Penny's one heck of a roller coaster ride to the top
Giraffe. Because they get to be up so high all the time and always look happy.
Both my parents, for their unconditional love and support.
I have the world's driest humour and laugh at way too many of my own jokes.
