I discovered the triathlon world in 2005. It is fair to say I quickly became obsessed! This has probably happened to many of you. Triathletes tend to be an obsessive bunch so I finally found like-minded people. I love it- hey- there are worse things I could be obsessed about. Triathlon has been a massive force for good in my life and given me structure, superb fitness, a bunch of cool friends who kick my butt and a lot of travel opportunities. My favourite distance is Olympic and 70.3. I am planning Ironman in 2017. Triathlon has taught me some important lessons: To never give up no matter how hopeless it seems right now Pain is temporary, results last forever To set unrealistic goals and work through every obstacle to make it happen no matter what That no matter how rubbish you feel right now, things will get better-eventually No matter how much you prepare, things sometimes still go wrong- Keep a sense of humour And much more- I mean the lessons keep coming right? So what do I do now? I continue my writing to help people looking to improve themselves in the world of health and fitness. I am also fortunate to have been invited to write with the excellent team at Triathlon Hacks, I coach clients 1:1 and online and I still swim, bike, run. I think this is in my blood now- I don’t know that I will ever stop, though I certainly train smarter now and have added a lot of gym strength work, yoga and I am diligent with my nutrition. * I travel a lot and currently live in Asia * I love surfing- this feeds my soul and is my meditation * I love House of Cards and James Bond movies (I keep waiting for the call up to be the next Bond) * Family is super important to me- I have one gorgeous son name Toby- he is now 3 years old (and of course has his first bike-though my wife wont let me get him an aero helmet :)). * I am the best cook in our household- I absolutely love it, I love being creative and getting grateful “thumbs up’s” from my guests)
