I’m not a marriage expert, quite clearly.
I was going to shave it. It went in two parts. I got a bob first but it kept falling all over my face. Then it was off, short. The main reason it was long was because my mother cut it short when I was little and I was trying to make up for that.
I want to keep my private life private.
I feel like I’ve reached an age where I can relax a little bit with the knowledge of what I’ve been through, take all that experience and use it. I love the challenge of trying to get back to where I’ve been, and beyond it.
I made my first Australian senior team when I was 16, first Olympics when I was 19, and I retired. I’m 32, I retired four years ago, so a good third of my life or nearly a third of my life has been all about running.
I was running since I was 10. Since grade one at school people looked at me and thought, oh gosh she can really run, she’s a natural.
With Alexander’s cancer, I was definitely brought to my knees for the first time because of the fear factor.
I don’t like people looking at me; I hate the attention.
My last real race was at the Olympics in Sydney in 2000.
People could see in me who I am now, an Olympic champ, the best in the world.
Between 1991 and 1997 I had really serious asthma.
I like being in the workforce; it keeps me grounded.
I lie around the floor with my cats Billy and Jazz or watch DVDs with my best friends.
Australians are a fantastic bunch of people but the attention can be overwhelming for someone like me.
I don’t agree with everything Madonna’s done but she is fearless.
