This year I will be living over ten years with MS. To celebrate I will be running marathons, competing in triathlons, Ironman races and also doing my first Ultra marathon in the West coast of Ireland. I am committed to constantly challenging my body and my mind and interestingly, my focus and mental clarity has never been so strong.
After an incredible year of achievement in 2015, I have been asking myself a very serious and deep question of late...
"How can I become a better version of me"
This is quite a deep question and its one that I have had to strip back some layers to find an answer to. Over the last nine years I have proved to myself, my family and the world, that despite living with Multiple Sclerosis, I can still go on and achieve my dreams. Dreams like having a family, building a fantastic business, smiling again, run again and even achieve the ultimate in adventure racing - become an IRONMAN. Its been an incredible ride. I think I am now focused on becoming a better version of me for the foreseeable future. This will mean that I will continue to test myself at adventure racing with marathons, triathlons and other crazy things, however I will also start to study and try and understand food and nutrition better, and understand more concisely what foods I should and definitely should not be eating. I am going to continue reading and finding people who inspire me so I can continue to tap into their mindset, and I am going to continue writing. This will help me on my way to becoming a stronger version of me. I look forward ti your continued support.
