1) Quirky tid-bit no one knows?  I’m a connoisseur of celebrity autobiographies (Neil Patrick Harris and Trevor Noah are two favorites)
2) What do you think about when you’re swimming so many yards? Depending on the set, I cycle through a 50 each of thinking about my catch, pull, exit, turns, and kick. It helps keep track of the distance, too!
3)What’s something you just can’t live without? Tea in the morning, fizzy water in the evening. I’m such a party animal.
4) If you had a CD stuck in your CD player, what artist would it be? Since I haven’t bought a CD in years, it would be one of the throwbacks from spending part of high school and college in Europe–think Robbie Williams, t.A.T.u, Sugababes, or Zebda.
5) What is the biggest mistake you’ve made in a triathlon? Not ensuring my hydration powder was properly mixed in the aero bottle. Tip: the straw doesn’t stir well enough to do this!! I wound up with a big clump of powder clogging the straw and hardly drank anything. It was not a good time. Now I just use a bike bottle in the front, which I can shake up beforehand.
