In the Pro's Questionnaire, our favorite sports figures take our abridged version of the most famous personality test, the Proust Questionnaire. Professional triathlete Cat Morrison is up next. The Scotland native is the 2011 Texas Ironman Champion.

Your main fault:
Catriona (Cat) Morrison: I'm a perfectionist. There's two, actually. I'm a perfectionist and I'm also the chief faffer. It's a Scottish term that means to procrastinate really, really well. You wander around doing lots of things but not really doing anything. Always doing things to delay the start of something which is inevitable, like tidying your room when you've got exams to study for. I'm really good at doing that.

Your idea of happiness:
CM: Just to be really content with what you have. You never want to be greedy. I would like to be able to do the things I want to do and to be able to do things to help others. Not having too much or too little, just being at a middle ground. Also feeling as if you have tried your hardest to attain your goals, regardless of whether you actually get them or not. To know that you've given a good bash so you can be satisfied with your efforts at the end of the day. I think that would give me a lot of personal peace.

Your idea of misery:
CM: Cold weather [laughs] -- I need to migrate!

If not yourself, who would you want to be?
CM: I think I would actually like to be an older, non-living relative of mine. I would like to go back a couple of generations and see how my great-grandmother or my great-great grandmother lived. I'd like to see the difference between the opportunities we have now as women compared to what they had. I think that would be pretty interesting.
