About you Im always down for anything adventurous, being outdoors and exploring new places. I don’t like doing things the conventional way and am always looking at ways to turn ordinary activities into something exciting! On my recent trip to the USA for the Spartan World Championships, Warrior Dash WC and the OCR WC I backpacked my way around, hitch hiking, camping and staying at people houses, it was an awesome way to see the country! I love to meet new people and exchange stories and experiences so this made the trip lots of fun. I’m very open to sharing information and helping others make a success and positive change to their training and racing and am happy to help where I can.
