Cycling and Dog Agility
I first got into exercising 9 years ago by competing in the KeriKeri half marathon with my good friend, Lyn. She said she’d do that with me if I rode around Lake Taupo with her a year later (didn’t know how to ride a bike before then). Being a heavy smoker for most of my life, something had to give, so I threw the smokes away and hopped on a bike.

Go hard or go home.
Exercise is very important in my life, from walking the dogs in the early morning (best part of the day) to hula hooping.
Music and good mates.

To ride around Lake Taupo in 6 hours (my personal best being 7 hours 11 minutes).
I eat plenty of green veggies and BeetBoost smoothies. I wasn’t really a fan of beetroot until I tried BeetBoost and now I make sure to have it during the majority of my rides and just whenever I need a pick me up.
Pull you head in!
Have a recovery drink with BeetBoost.
I like that is all natural and tastes great and I get an energy “boost” out of it while out on the bike. Off the bike when I just need a pick-me-up, I turn straight to BeetBoost. Works every time!
