Relationship with Sports and Triathlon:
She is also an avid sports lover. She has mentioned that she has always loved sports since she was a child. Her father, Southwest Captain Don Speacht, was an air pilot for Air Florida and they shared a very strong bond through the medium of sports. She remembers that they caught up on a lot of Football games.
She also likes to swim and is a really competitive swimmer. Speaking of which, she has also been interested in running a Triathlon for a long time.
To excel in it, she had been training very hard for it, about 2 hours a day for 6 to 7 weeks.
She finally ran her first Triathlon and finished it in her targeted time of 1 hour 38 minutes and 7 seconds.
