If you could participate in any sporting event in the world, what would it be? And, why? Red Bull Flugtag cause it looks like fun.

MARC RAWLINGS

Age: 39

Hometown: Penrith, NSW.

Two words to describe yourself: passionate & slightly OCD.

Is there anything you class 'lucky' you have to wear race day - certain sock, bracelet etc? All big races I have to race in a new pair of socks.

What is the best advice you’ve ever been given? Don’t over complicate things, just keep it simple.

What is your favourite motivational quote? “Don’t watch the clock; Do what it does and keep going”.

If you could participate in any sporting event in the world, what would it be? And, why? Boston marathon, all the tradition of the 100 year + event. Running down Boylston Street would be amazing with all the support out there.

What is your most embarrassing moment in a race? In a pre race ocean swim in Foster, I had a massive panic attack, 200m from shore, and had to get pulled to safety, still haunts me! 

I’m at my best when... When I am fit, healthy and relaxed! I am a little bit of a nightmare when I am not training and I just can’t sit still. 

Do you have a weird food fetish? If so, what is it? Has to be bacon and banana sandwiches.

Are you a Woolies or Coles shopper? I shop at both, always on the lookout for a special.

What would you spend your last $50 on? Probably a grain fed- steak or something and a beer.

Why do you choose to be aligned with TITAN? I aligned with TITAN because I love what they are about, the support, the family feel. I wanted to be able to represent a community that makes you want to get the best out of yourself and supports you. TITAN gives you the platform to share your love for triathlon and running with a wider audience and gives a better opportunity to help involve and inspire others.

SAM MENTEITH

Age: 31

Hometown: Adelaide, SA

Two words to describe yourself: Competitive, enthusiastic

Is there anything you class 'lucky' you have to wear race day - certain sock, bracelet etc? Not lucky, but more of a ritual: I use the same towel (when allowed) in transition and have a checklist that I go through twice before I leave transition.

What is the best advice you’ve ever been given? Trust the process and nutrition is key.

What is your favourite motivational quote? “Great things never came from comfort zones”

If you could participate in any sporting event in the world, what would it be? And, why?  Ironman World Championships – to race against the best of the best would simply be amazing.

What is your most embarrassing moment in a race? When I almost started another lap of the bike course during a sprint race in regional SA. I lost count of how many laps I had completed and as the distance was ‘a bit short’ on my Garmin, I almost went around again. Thankfully, I pulled in just in time!

I’m at my best when…  I’m happy, healthy and surrounded by positive and caring people.

Do you have a weird food fetish? If so, what is it?  Sorry, I am boring on this front. No food fetishes. But on the OCD front, I do have to turn off a powerpoint switch that is left in the on position if it doesn’t have something plugged in it – no matter where I am. Otherwise it drives me insane.

Are you a Woolies or Coles shopper? Woolies

What would you spend your last $50 on? My husband. He deserves it.

Why do you choose to be aligned with TITAN? I am an honest, loyal and supportive person by nature. After dealing with the team at Titan for the past few years, it is clear to see that this team is certainly all of that and more. That is the perfect reason to align myself with such a wonderful company.

What is your favourite motivational quote? The pain of discipline is far less than the pain of regret.

If you could participate in any sporting event in the world, what would it be? And, why? Boxing Day Test Match. There's no better atmosphere and occasion. Plus it would be a bit easier on the body than Kona.

What is your most embarrassing moment in a race? Left my race belt and number in my transition bag at Penrith 70.3

I’m at my best when... Im backed up against a wall and everybody says I can't do it.

Charlie Jarman

Age: 25 

Hometown: Adelaide, South Australia.

Two words to describe yourself: I asked my best friend and her words were loyal and neurotic! ha

Is there anything you class 'lucky' you have to wear race day - certain sock, bracelet etc? Always use the same towel in transition for every race. I have to check my tyres at least 3 times before I can leave the transition area.

What is the best advice you’ve ever been given? Be kind to everyone! I am a believer in Karma and one day you might need their help!

What is your favourite motivational quote? A lion does not lose sleep over the opinions of sheep' I have this quote saved as my screen saver on my phone (when its not of ) and it just reminds me to keep my head up when things are tough and that only mine and those opinions of those who I respect really matter.

If you could participate in any sporting event in the world, what would it be? And, why? I always wanted to be Susie O'neil so I would be an Olympic butterfly swimmer. I am most comfortable in the water!

What is your most embarrassing moment in a race? In one of my first races before I learnt how to gracefully get off the bike. I didn't get out of my shoes quick enough and feel sideways into the spectators.

Are you a Woolies or Coles shopper? Oh neither I am a Foodland kind of girl! 

What would you spend your last $50 on? This is a tough question for a shopaholic to answer, but, I would buy a chicken snitty pack and after, get a massage!

Why do you choose to be aligned with TITAN? I enjoy the friendship I have with Robbo and Wade and am very grateful to be apart of the TITAN community. I love my visits into the store to have a gossip with Lucy and I am proud to represent a local business full of hard working people.
