Triathlon Number 2 - Sunday 4th August 2013 - #ClimbingHigher

This Sunday I will be swimming up Belfast Lough taking part in only my second ever triathlon.  I have to tell you that although I am a little bit apprehensive about the swim, I am looking forward to the event.

There should be plenty of spectators and I believe hundreds of competitors, so bring it on.  In the past 7 days I have had a very special gift arrive to our home.  My first son Conor Patrick was born on Friday and hopefully come this Sunday both him, my daughter Lilyanna and wife Kate will be cheering their dad over the finish line, that's the plan anyway!!

2013 has been my best year yet and we are only half way through.  I have so many things to do in the next 6 months and  will hopefully be revealing them very soon.

I have to admit the 67km event in Donegal a few weeks ago has wiped me out as I still have a virus swimming around my bones, but I'm hoping come Sunday morning at Donegall Quay, the adrenalin kicks in and the Duncan Goodhue comes out in me in the swim, the Chris Froome in the cycle and the Mo Farah in the running - its best to aim for the top!.

So I will keep you posted on how I go and I just hope that my goals and progress is helping others believe that you to can take control of your body and mind and achieve your goals.  The best place to start is to write them down.  So far this year I have hit every target -I think I need to aim higher.
