I thought for this blog I would actually explain how I came about joining Team TBB and Brett .
Its coming up to three weeks in camp on the gold coast & it has been absolutely great fun. Although I’ve only ever lived here a few years of my life ( gold coast ) – it feels more like home than the busy Brisbane where I grew up. I have a large group of friends down here too- including 1 awesome chick and team TBB member Bek Keat .
So about 2 and half years ago ,probably the end of 08 or early 09 when I was training with Snowsill, I met up with Miss Keat for a long ride .. we got chatting as usual and of course the subject about training came up…
Bek: So how’s things going with Snowy babe , enjoying it all ?!
Me : yeah yeah its good . ( or something like that . I didn’t really elaborate haha)
And what about you ? Who you training under at the moment ?
Bek : I’m with Brett .
Me : Sutto?!
Bek : Yeah babe !
Me: F**K isn’t that like super hard shit?!
Bek : Yeah but chick he’s soo good I shoulda joined the team sooner . I’ve never been soo fit .
Me: ( huffing ) yeahh I reckon haha
So that was the end of that subject… But its funny how a little conversation like that can stick in your head……. .
Then only 6 months ago I had my hip operated on and was one frustrated girl . I wasn’t happy with my coaching situation and I didn’t know what to do .
I called up Bek and we met for a pilates session ,where I think we did more talking than pilates ( sorry Creeni ! ) . I told her the situation I was in and how I thought going to Brett could be an option .
Now back 10 years ago as a 14 yr old my tri coach would link me up with Loretta now and again for a session . She was someone I really looked up to as a youngster and I learnt a lot just training side by side her. Loretta was coached by Brett at the time and I always wondered wether one day I would ever join team Sutton ..
Bek : Babe you gotta email the Doc . Just do it ! Join the Team and then you can train with me . Yeooww!
So I did . But I can’t help but say it was her bright , bubbly , optimistic and friendly self that just gave me that extra little push to contact ‘the Doc’ .
Anyways It’s funny how things turn out .. I always say everything happens for a reason .
I’m loving it
So to end that little story – thanks ‘big Sis’ Bek
and thankyou Brett and Team TBB.
