Reflection is a Powerful Tool

Reflection is your Bridge to Knowledge   Every January there are men and woman around the world who think its a new year to start fresh, and remove those habits they’ve developed throughout the past year, with no reflection from their past 12 months.  Not that there is anything wrong with the above way of […]

THE ULTIMATE TRIATHLON

By staring at a world map with nothing more than adventure on my mind, the route of The Ultimate Triathlon simply jumped out at me. What started as an idea, flourished into an inspiring, life changing, and unforgettable journey covering 2000kms in just 12 days from Morocco to Monaco. I had an award winning documentary made, […]

MARATHON DES SABLES

    Having just retired from my injury plagued football career that day, instead of facing the facts that my life was about to change, I decided to run away from making any real life decisions. I had never run more than 10 kilometres before, and I thought it was a “good idea” to sign […]

THE DOUBLE BRUTAL EXTREME TRIATHLON

I had never completed a triathlon before, and a year out from my 2000 kilometre in 12-day Ultimate Triathlon, I thought it would be a good idea to get a multisport event under my belt. I decided to take on The Double Brutal Extreme Triathlon. This double Ironman distance race (8km swim, 375km bike, 85km […]

HAINAN

Hainan is an island located in the South China Sea. The small province of the People’s Republic of China has many beautiful beaches, rainforests, and mountains, which were the reason I went there. My plan while in Hainan was to run to, and then climb, Wuzhi Mountain, the highest mountain in Hainan. Although only 1,840m […]

LUKE LEARNS TO SURF

As an Aussie living in London and not knowing how to surf, I thought it was time to live up to the stereotype so many people in this world have of Australians; that we must all know how to surf. The most famous surf town in the UK is Newquay, situated over 400 kilometres from […]

NEPAL EVEREST

Googling the world highest ultra-marathon sparked the idea of my Nepalese adventure. The Everest Ultra is a 65-kilometre race down Mt Everest. Starting at the old Everest Basecamp Gorakshep (5164m) this race wound its way down the mountain before finishing in Lukla (2860m). With my head throbbing from the altitude, and being hit by an […]

MT ASPIRING

A close friend asked if I wanted to join him to climb Mt Aspiring, New Zealand’s second highest mountain on its magical South Island; I didn’t give taking on this picturesque technical climb a second thought, I was in! Unfortunately, we were delayed to get up into the mountain because of bad weather, then after a day of rock […]

Mindset Coaching

Through challenging my body to what I thought were its limits, and then continuing to push through these barriers I realised something; that my mind is so much stronger than my body. But what does this mean? You’ve probably heard something along the lines of this. “When your mind wants to quit, your body still […]
