How did you decided to start with the triathlon?
"I was a party girl until I started triathlon at the age of 25. I grew up swimming until I was 18, but there were a few years there when I wasn’t doing much of anything. Then, I met my [now husband] Claus Andersen, and he got me into the sport. Before I knew it, I was a competitive athlete again. Now, I still like to party—but it’s mostly at the after-party."
