SPORT: PROFESSIONAL TRIATHLETE

In their own words:

When I’m not training or competing, I love to: Spend time with the family and get outside as much as possible. Catch a movie or go to a game.

Something that very few people know about me is: I am a fantasy football champion, and in my next career I will own a ranch and be a pro bull rider.

A good title for my autobiography would be: Have you seen that Hair: the Life and Times of Cam Dye

What first inspired you to push your potential? I have been competing since I was a little kid, and have always had a love for sports. The original motivation to get into swimming was the medals that my cousin had from his swim meets, and from that the desire to win was born

My favorite athletic moment or achievement to date is: Winning the 2012 Toyota Cup Series

The worst moment I’ve ever experienced in a race is: Being crashed into on the bike while leading the Lifetime Fitness Triathlon. Finished the race but had a broken rib and was out for 6 weeks

The event on my bucket list is: 70.3 World Championships

My pre-race superstition is: I eat pizza the night before almost all of my races, and it started after winning St Anthony's the very first time I tried pizza as a pre race meal

Nathan helps me run stronger and run longer by: Providing the best in hydration and nutrition storage for use while on the go

My go-to Nathan product is: The Fire & Ice bottle
