Isobel Stout

What event are your training for and what is your goal?
Lots of events! Mt Cook, South Island Masters, Boulder Bay Classic, QT Half Marathon, Le Race and Graperide.

What it is your motivation for wanting to achieve this?
These are all just fun days out for me and give structure to my routine adventures (aka training).

What is your background and how did you get into your sport?
Not sporty at all. I have swum, run, skated, skiied, biked and hiked cos I love the outdoors.

What is your favourite event/or training mission so far?
I try to make my last mission my favourite everytime.

Why?
For me I love the process, I see each mission as an adventure and not training at all so I get to find something to love in each outing and it’s never dull or repetitive.

What is your favourite training ride/run/kayak/swim etc?
Usually the last one I did! But I love a hilltop with an epic view no matter how I got up there.

Who is your inspiration?
The Buddha

Who is your biggest fan?
My husband
