Ironman made me a Multi-tasker – Luvuyo Bangazi

One of the best gifts from doing Ironman in my mind is the ability to multitask. How we juggle and try to keep balance is a skill that needs work daily. So my wonderful coaches at Team Tissink prescribed a 4hour bike ride and 30min run on Saturday. My kids schools prescribed Monkeynastix at 9am (3yr old) and Fun park run at 9am (8yr old). All the meanwhile Smile Foundation had a Cyclothon at Baywest from 9am -1pm, another initiative...

Steelhead 70.3 – Gareth Wright

Moving to the United States of America at the beginning of February brought more challenges to my training than I thought. The biggest challenge that I faced was training on my own. I was not looking for a training partner/partners to train with on a daily basis, but for company when the going got tough… and boy did it get rough at stages emotionally! Looking back at the past 6 months, it may have been a blessing that I trained...

I don’t think I’ve ever seen swim conditions like that before. When the announcement came that the swim was cancelled, we were all disappointed, and thought that it wasn’t actually that bad. But walking down to the beach,...

An Athletes photo.  Those that know me well, will know, that did not sit well.  I wasn’t an athlete, I was a swimmer.  Yes, I was probably one of the better swimmers around but just a swimmer… The dream started to really burn when my...

My Journey to, and through Addo

In early September 2015 I heard rumours that the old school Addo 100 Miler trail run might be brought back for the first time in over 5 years. As the kind of person who always takes the “big/toughest” option in everything that I choose to do, this immediately was something that I was interested in. But, at that same moment a little devil jumps up onto your shoulder… “But Johan… you couldn’t even make it to 60km in the 2015 Addo 76km...
