Now my time is no longer just my own, I must plan my days smarter and make the most of every minute.I don’t take my training time or recovery for granted I like to be able to return to my smiling little boy no matter if I win or lose. Becoming a mother gave me a new perspective on life and I am more grateful to my family and my sports.

What is your favorite breakfast?
A large omelet made of 2 eggs, 1/2 cup egg whites, 2 slices of Canadian bacon, 1/4 shredded cheese, and my favorite vegetables: spinach, mushrooms, orange pepper and red onion. On my larger training day, I added a little butter and cinnamon sugar to the side of 2 slices of multi-grain toast. Oh, and American coffee made with my beloved espresso machine!
