Running/swimming in all their forms are in essence, free lifestyle sports, especially when you venture into the mountains, seas & lakes. You can literally “go anywhere, anytime” long as you have the basic kit and the appetite for adventure.
For the more adventurous trail running/sky running & open water swimming are difficult to emulate, furthermore providing the backdrop of nature, in all its magnificent glory, immersing yourself in the open water or mountains/trails; is thrilling.
It reminds of the verse from Ecclesiastes 9-13.
“ I know that their is nothing better for people than to be happy and to do good while they live to find satisfaction in all their toil” – this is the Gift of God.
The Mountains, Seas & lakes are a gift. I urge all my students, coaches, teams, schools & parents; to delve into them, to pursue, overtake & recover all.

I wanted to send a big thank you to his loyal & beloved Riflemen who have arranged a special gathering today at the cemetery in Winchester where he lays to rest.
I did not have much time with him but his leadership, energy and compassion for his Soldiers truly moved me as a young boy. That awesome dynamic magnetism that shone through him. He was a magnificent Commander, soldier, man of action & leader of men. Greatly missed by me and my family and off course his Riflemen who would of followed him anywhere.
” Make the days count, be brave and Bold” he told me while I was perched on his desk at Regimental HQ in Gibraltar, words I have never forgotten and echo daily.
