A little more about Jess
Thai and Vietnamese cuisine. Slow-cooked meats and seafood dishes with coconut rice are particular favourites.
There are so many great place but it’s hard to go past Gin Long Canteen and Peel Street. For cafés at the moment, The Lab has been the local stomping ground.
Favourite way to stay active:
Long-distance running. Also I love watching athletics and barrack hard when watching the AFL.
It has to be the Mighty Dee’s, but still always a place in my heart for the Crows.
Benita Willis (Australian Marathon Record-holder) & Roger Federer. I’ve also enjoyed watching local hero Kyle Chalmers’ rapid ascent. He is one of the world’s best swimmers but is still extremely humble and down to earth.
Best way to keep fit:
Find a way to be active that is enjoyable and satisfying. Eat well most of the time. Be consistent.
Avoid being completely stationary for long periods – a 30 second stretch break every 10 minutes can make a world of difference.
