As a meteorologist and avid triathlete who works in the Arctic Circle—often for up to a year at a time—she has learnt to get creative with her workouts. Perchaluk is featured on the cover of the latest issue of Triathlete, which goes on sale January 7, and you can read more about her incredible story on page 14 in our “Make It Work” section.
