Are fine wine and ridiculous training mutually exclusive?
No! Everything in moderation. I limit alcohol during training, but a little vino now and then is necessary to maintain one’s sanity.
How do you train/prepare for an event like this?
I’ve been working with a great trainer from the Carmichael group to help identify weaknesses and increase my overall stamina and strength. Since taking up running five years ago, I’ve had no trouble disciplining myself to work out. I love it. But to be physically ready for a challenge such as this, you definitely have to raise the bar.
People go crazy dealing with a third of what you handle every day. Any advice?
Be organized and efficient. And taking a little time out to recharge and relax can go a long way.
You’ll be in Hawaii; do you have any restaurants there?
No restaurants in Hawaii, but I’m excited to see what the island has to offer, cuisinewise.
