It’s been a long road towards my first half IronMan event in Lake Placid NY and it’s safe to say that if it doesn’t challenge you it wont change you. This is my build up of events leading Mike Riley to hit me with his four magical words at the end of my IronMan Mont-Tremblant journey on August 28th of 2019.
My mission is to explore new places & travel as much as I can whilst training for this event. Live and learn from new cultures and people around you.
IM70.3 Dubai UAE
February 1st 2019
This city has managed to attract peoples attention from all over the world. Starting from plain desert it has managed to build up such a flashy reputation where the pros are all wanting to experience this race course. Well known for its post race celebrations I figured why not experience this event since its close to my home town.
IM70.3 Muscat Oman
March 1st 2019
My first trip to Oman will definitely be a memorable one as I will be travelling there for the first time accompanying my TriAmman training buddies. Expecting to get a glimpse of the fresh sea air for a country well known for its dazzling souks, architecture, seafood and aquatic life.
Full Moon Desert Marathon Jordan
April 19th 2019
WadiRum has always been my favourite venue in the entire universe. I have been visiting this magical spot ever since my childhood and I think it’s about time to run a trail marathon while visualising the dunes, sunset and eventually the expected luminous full moon & stars in that wonderful open space. A true challenge that I will be happy to have conquered.
IM70.3 Eagleman USA
June 9th 2019
Believe it or not I do believe that riding your bike in the USA is an absolutely wonderful experience. The nature surrounding you, the fresh breeze of air, the possibilities of challenging cold weather and other surprises are always something to learn from. This will mark my main build up phase for the big day. I also look forward to see my sister & niece at the finish line. Good to mix up some family bonding along the main stretch of my IM journey.
IM Mont-Tremblant Canada
August 18th 2019
I remember I visited this venue when I was a child and little did I know at the time that one day I will be thinking of doing such a crazy thing at this location!
I will be competing alongside my friend/mentor/coach and three of his other coaching athletes and we will hopefully all be IronMen on that day.
