During my holiday time I've lived with a remote Masai tribe for nine days, climbed Mt Kenya (16,000 feet high), Mt Kilimanjaro (19,340 feet high) three times and Mount Toubkal (13,655 feet high). I've also “run” the Reading Half Marathon three times, the Great South Run and The Grim (8 miles cross country on the Army off road vehicle testing grounds at Aldershot) twice, plus taken part in the Three Peak 24 Hour Challenge, climbed the ridge route up Mount Snowdon and been canoeing.
Although not the “finest” physical specimen I have a stubborn will to win at all of my challenges which has carried me through safely
