Life is a Sine Curve is a concept that came out of a mixture of what I’ve learnt as an ultramarathon runner, from 30 years leading international teams in business, in my own personal life experiences, and now as an ultra running coach. I believe in ‘stretch goals’ and aspire to be the best person I can be. The principle of Life is a Sine Curve has helped me to set and achieve the right goals for me and my family.
If some of this resonates with you, then I hope you will be equipped by the concept and posts with the practical tools you need to traverse the highs and lows of life – in sport, in business, or in your personal life.
I live in the South West of England with my wife and two children. During my career to date I’ve worked throughout Northern Europe, the US and Canada. I ran a couple of marathons in my early thirties while living in France, and then saw the Marathon Des Sables one year on Canal+ and was instantly inspired to take on the challenge. After three years of training, I completed the MdesS in 2011 and have since conquered a number of ultramarathon events.
Ultra running isn’t something that comes naturally. As a younger man, I was a rugby player and do not have the lean stature of classic long distance runners. Nevertheless, I find the highs and lows of the ultramarathon journey compelling and rewarding – and a fantastic training ground for all aspects of my life.
I am now also one of Extreme Energy’s ultramarathon coaches, making training for any goal – from a first ultra to the Marathon des Sables – easier, faster (and more fun) with help and support. Hear more at www.xnrg.co.uk.
