I am a dreamer. I’m also a husband, a father, a brother and a friend. I embrace life’s challenges and are constantly seeking opportunities to test myself.
I’m prone to accepting random challenges of endurance. I have not always viewed myself as an endurance athlete. I’ve become one. The foundations were laid by CrossFit and ever since being introduced to mountain biking the endurance appetite grew.
I’ve completed races like the Desert Dash, the Wines to Whales and the Cape Town Cycle Tour. I’ve summitted Kilimanjaro with my wife and my latest endeavor is to cross the finish line of a full Ironman Triathlon. Endurance training affords me time to wrestle with my demons, to slay the doubt and banish the fear. It’s only by pushing our limits that we’ll discover how far we can go.
Every one of us has a story. Never ever think your story is any less important than someone else’s. It’s by telling your story that you can positively influence others. Lessons learned through your suffering will change the course of the lives of the people you tell it to. On these pages I’m attempting to tell my story and hopefully I can contribute towards making your ups more rewarding and your downs less depressing.
The real joys of life will only ever be experienced if we live with authenticity – if we love fully and unconditionally. Go out there and give it all you’ve got!
