Ramsey Island 3 & 6 Peaks Challenge 2019  The Ramsey Island Peaks Challenge It was great to be back on the Island for what is becoming our annual run around it and it’s peaks. After postponing the July Ramsey Island Peaks Challenge due to the sea state yesterday really was ideal conditions. The Sun was out but cooler temperatures meant it was a bit more bearable. However it is easy for me to say that from my position of sitting on top of Peak 3 enjoying the sea breeze. As everyone else who reached me was blowing, sweating and walking.

  What’s in a name! Man Up to MUUK: Now what seems like another life time ago, we decided to spread our wings from the Whitesands Challenge to Ras Dewi Sant and thought, we need a name and a website.  This was discussed with a few, but no name stood out and then a former work colleague and pretty decent marathon runner himself came forward to say, “what about Man-Up, it seems to be the in saying for endurance sport these days?” Now I can’t say I’d used this saying or thought much of it, So I googled it as you do, and the

Tour de Shane 2019 I’m not sure if it was the Sun in the sky or the love of cycling, but spring was definitely in the air. TDS 2019 proved to a very enjoyable occasion for all our staff and Marshals and the riders themselves based on the feedback we have had. This was the 3rd Tour de Shane we have held in St Davids and the change of route went down very well. Some of the changes were actually new to us (Hasguard Cross!) but everyone recovered!! We are always looking at ways to improve and make things better and that

The Race to the Top – a reflection on time in the mountains Having spent a few days in the mountains, the following thoughts ran through the mind whilst meandering my way around the peaks of Snowdonia. 1) How tackling mountains relate to life! 2) Don’t let failures define you So how exactly does life mirror a day in the mountains? Well these are my thoughts. Dreaming of Success We all have dreams of reaching the top of something or being the best we can be, but have we all got what it takes to turn dreams into reality?

And then following this all to easy crumble of will power had the frustration and depressive feelings of realising that January is just another month and 2019 is just another number and that they weren’t a new dawn! And the start of a new you. When this happens and resolutions are broken, the easiest thing is to just give up

World Gone Mad Now my year review could all be about things that inspire me; the sunshine, beach and great photos but no, no and no say it as you see it!  As another year comes to an end, what can you say? The world appears to be going mad, maybe even the beginning of the end, if you are to believe some conspiracy theorist.  We seem to live in a world where complete strangers feel the need to tell people how they should live their lives or if you speak out with your opinion you are labelled!!! Certainly not

The Next Challenge As November strikes this means the end of 2018 is in sight and our thoughts start to focus on 2019 and what will our goals be for the year ahead. What will motivate you to train throughout the winter, encourage you get out there, be healthier and give you a focus through the dark and gloomy months!
