It is only in the last few years that health and fitness has really become an essential part of my life. I guess the first ‘sporting achievement’ would be losing 20kgs and gaining a new sense of confidence and happiness! Because of this I have amazed myself in what I have been able to achieve as a result: 3 half-marathons, various Spartan Races - the last one being “The Beast” (21km, 40+ obstacles), Tough Mudder, and now my first ANB BB Comp!
Obstacles you have overcome or life changing moments you would like to share
The biggest obstacle was the person staring at me in the mirror every morning when I was at my heaviest (100kg)! I used to kid myself that I was still relatively healthy and in okay shape. I remember being shocked by seeing photos of myself and seeing EXACTLY how out of shape I had become – looking bloated and unhealthy, and worst of all - unhappy.
