"The fight is won or lost far away from witnesses - behind the lines, in the gym, and out there on the road, long before I dance under those lights."

I am a father, husband, triathlete and trail runner. I moved to Canada 7 years ago from Ireland. I am at my happiest when I am in the trails running or in the water swimming. I started my triathlon journey 10 years ago. When I started I said I wanted to finish an Ironman before I was 30 and I got that chance in 2013. I finished with a massive smile on my face. In 2017 I will attempt my first off road triathlon and attempt to crack 5 hours half Ironman, it is going to be a lot of hard work but I am setting my goals high.
