Inspiration: Being an Elite athlete in Hawaii is a great privilege because we live in paradise. I like to think that triathlon is inspired by the three essential natural elements, water for swimming, air for cycling, and the earth for running. You never feel so alive as when your body is in unison with the earth while pushing your physical limits!
