About this blog

This blog is all about my journey to become – hopefully – an Ironman, or at least a half one (aka 70.3), and you.

I want it to be a place to inspire, share, and engage.

I know it’s not much compared to some of the diseases around, but I suffered from asthma as a child, and I want to encourage anyone with disabilities to take part in sports.

My goal was to compete in one Ironman before being forty. I’ve failed, mainly due to a knee pain, and maybe a lack of self-belief and training. Hopefully, I will make it one day. In the meantime, I will share my day to day experience with you.

I try my best to be funny, provide useful tips as well as decent reviews. Please do not hesitate to read my posts, spend a few minutes to leave a comment or give a like.
