THIS IS MY STORY
Pre-2008 my only sporting focus was in Windsurfing, the sport of Rugby and the occasional run. After suffering a haemo pneumothorax and 6 weeks of hospital in 2009 however, my drive to ‘raise-the-bar’ developed. Soon after leaving hospital I competed in the New Forest Marathon and it was then that my thirst for physical achievements commenced.
Since that changing point in my life, I have realised that there is very little which separates all of us on this great planet. Our brains can get us anywhere……they just need to be pointed in the right direction. Every is achievable, if you want it enough. The bug has now bitten to continually raise the bar.
Having completed a successful unsupported polar expedition to the North Pole in 2012, I was on the hunt for a world first. I may not be the most athletic of builds (chunky is probably a better description!), but I have a big engine and a lot of determination. My challenge therefore was obvious to me. It needed to be one which tested my stamina. Something which would really test me when others would give up. Something which not many people will ever do again. A very, very, very long run seemed to be the answer.
