Your alter-ego name: Adri Ferrari
Team Role: The Second Lady
Occupation: Graphic Designer (did I say frustrated?)
Home Town: Jozi
Goals: To Live This Life To The Fullest
Best AR Memory: The World's Viewpoint in Pietermaritzburg. Could see about 270degrees of 150kms. (We didnt finish the race, so didnt get to the other great views) Oh, and the Skeleton Gorge Night Trail run in Touwsriver!
Worst AR Memory: Running out of snacks and a near-drown
Ultimate AR fantasy: Wartrail 2010

Guilty indulgence: Good, strong coffee... and Cremora.
Must-have on every race: Water-purifying tablets & vaseline
Sporting history: Bit of this and that at school. Then the "I only run when something is chasing me"... about 8 years ago. Then I started running and must have done close to 9000kms since. Long distance swimming, and in 2009 MTB. Now addicted and loving it.
Preferred discipline: Running... but the bike also got hold of me now.
Worst sporting injury: Broke both my arms at the same time in grade 6 (long jump) and couldn't swim that summer.
Who do you consider your greatest competition in the team: Sue... because she's female? If not then Mike, coz his jokes are funnier than mine.
Who in the team is the best entertainer: The one that races behind me!
Do you think anyone in the team has a criminal record and for what? Hmm... Mike? (Smoking dubie in his twenties?)
Motto: "Our greatest fear is not that we are inadequate, but that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that frightens us."
