By | March 1st, 2013|Charity, Friends, Motivation, MS, Training|

Today was the first day of the challenge of just over 1000km for our group of riders.  But to send them off in style we rode to Torquay College where the children were all in their stadium waiting for us, 900 of them with teachers and some parents as well.  It was fantastic to have these [...]

Change How You See the World

By | February 20th, 2013|Family, Friends, Motivation|

Today I received an email from my Aunt Rheta and Uncle Bob in Canada.  The email was short and simple and said  "This is a wonderful, thought-provoking, one minute clip.  Full of wisom...and very brief.  It's not a joke, it's not religious, it's not political.  It's just special."  And oh how right they were.  So [...]

The Life of a Fundraiser

By | February 17th, 2013|Friends, Motivation, MS|

If you ever have anything to do with a charity organisation you understand how hard it is to fundraise.  I think that most people will receive on average about 4-5 requests a week for money for this walk, or that ride, or to sell tickets for someone!  I'm afraid that I am one of those [...]

A Sporting Weekend!

After my first week of the new drug I have been put on I didn't get to do much exercise on the week days this past week as they weren't really sure how the drug would affect my heart with the intensity of working out that I do.  By Friday I was going nuts so [...]

The Right Attitude

By | January 4th, 2013|Family, Friends, Motivation, MS|

While growing up I think I probably heard from every adult in my life that "if you have the right attitude you can do anything".  This wasn't just from my parents but teachers as well.  I think as kids we all just roll our eyes at what is said to us by the adults and [...]

Tim’s Voyage (Madness on the Sea!)

By | December 29th, 2012|Friends, MS|

Today I met up with a friend of mine Tim Spiteri for a coffee to wish him well on a journey that he is about to undertake.  It isn't the type of journey that most of the world would ever do.  He is about to row from the Canary Islands to Port St. Charles in [...]
