The story of how running has become a major part of my life, and how it has evolved from the first 5 km I ever ran up to 100 km ultra marathons.

See the list of various events I have completed over the last 10 years, including road runs, trail races, duathlons, triathlons, stair climbs and obstacle course races.

Gain an insight into a few of the races I have competed in, and the lessons I have learned along the way (some multiple times).

Are you ever in a running slump? Do you need some added motivation to get you out the door? Then check out these running-related movies for a burst of inspiration to get you back on track.

It's not only movies that provide me with inspiration, it's also the stories of others who have been out there completing the toughest of challenges, giving it their all. Here is a list of many of the books I have read related to running, including adventure tales, training guides and advice on mental toughness.
