Met Mike H some years ago in business and have become friends over time - both having been affected by cancer in our families, we have forged a friendship strong enough for him to get me to do another crazy run for a great cause.

I’ve been bitten by the endurance bug over last few years and always wanted to complete a triathlon. Completed first Olympic distance in Oct 2014 in 3h40. Pushed it up a notch and did the Lisbon 70:30 (1/2 Ironman) in May. Felt great at finish after 6h39 on the road. Figured I felt so good I would be able to complete a full Ironman (well now we going to find out what 15 or 16 hours out on the road is going to feel like :)) Completed it in 2016 in Wales – 14h50m.
Why Cancer support? My brother Chris passed away in March 2014 after fighting his illness for over 2 years. I always thought it would be someone else’s family, how wrong was I. He was an amazing man, brother, friend with so much love and fight – this was not enough. My mum was diagnosed earlier this year so this is a small “fight” and is nothing compared to what he went through in his last year, and what my mum currently is going through.
