Ironman Flordia 2017 – Race Report
First off apologies… you’re probably sick of hearing about this sodding Ironman! My facebook feed was alight with congratulatory messages snapped pics and an amazing outpouring of love and support from friends, family, fellow triathletes, squad members and well-wishers, it was simply overwhelming and wonderful all at the same time.

Is 5:30am really that bad?
It’s so easy to say “I’m not a morning person” I know because I said it, daily, weekly, monthly, yearly! I had myself believing it. I read a lot of autobiographies – I like to read about interesting people. They are not always about successful billionaires although many of the rags to riches stories do…

Ironman Racine 70.3 Race report
It was dark, somewhere in the distance an owl hooted. The warm breeze associated with the Cayman climate at this hour was none existent.

You just have to believe! No I don’t mean in the biblical sense, I mean you just have to believe in yourself and believe that you can! Yeah, yeah, yeah why are you telling me this I’ve heard this all before… well you perhaps have but I bet you haven’t done this… I would like…
The Chicago Marathon 2015 – Part 2 of the 640 Challenge – An introspective
It was dark, somewhere in the darkness an owl hooted, ok it was not an owl but the alarm clock in our hotel room going off at 5am! Actually 5am is probably a lay in compared to the 4am training runs, but sh!t the day was finally here! We had survived training injury free (Well…
