Only a few years ago, Paul worked in a sedentary job and, by his own admission, was overweight and desperate to get in shape. In a bid to turn his life around, he decided to attempt a triathlon and, having successfully completed his first challenge, he hasn’t looked back.
Last year, Paul completed three Ironman races and, keen for a new challenge, he is now training for a 100 mile race, the Winter 100, on 24 November for Starlight. The event will require Paul to dig deep, pushing through physical and mental barriers and using every bit of energy he has.
Paul said, “Running a 100 mile ultra-marathon has long been an ambition of mine and competing to help raise funds, for such an incredible cause, makes this race all the more important. Knowing that in a small way my run will help Starlight’s work is what will spur me to pass that finish line, even when I’m enduring my toughest moments.” To read the full story, click here.
