My motivation
Fundraising for cause areas including:
Mental health and suicide prevention

Most people close to me know I'm doing an Ironman this year but few know the why (which is something I'm working towards - hence why we're here!). In 2019 I had a terrible year with a misdiagnosis leading to 3 stomach surgeries in 7 months. This put my head in the bin and frankly highlighted that communicating about my emotions/mental health isn't one of my strengths. The one thing that got me out of the ditch was goal setting, with something that seemed completely unreasonable at the time. Although this may be unconventional for others, at the time that was all I knew I could do, so I started telling people I was going to do an Ironman. A few laughs from friends and one financial bet at the Christmas dinner table and my stubborn mind was made. Fast forward 4 years (and a pandemic) and I'm less than two weeks out from pushing for that goal. The prep for this has physically been a massive uphill battle (most recently a partially torn ankle), it has however given me lots of solitary hours on the road allowing for time to reflect on where my head's at (part of the point is to be comfortable in this somewhat vulnerable position).

Sunday 27th August I will be wielding a terrible moustache, running an Ironman. Any donations to help the Movember cause, messages of support or even fellow moustaches (fake or real) will help more than you realise!

Thank you for taking the time to read my little back story on the 'why' and for any support given!
