This is something we only get to say once a year but it’s always our favorite announcement… Registrations to Ultra X Sri Lanka to be held in March 2022 are OPEN!

We are already counting down the days.

Since reading his excellent book "Spoon-fed" I've been an ardent Tim Spector groupie and followed the ZOE COVID Symptom Study he has been leading closely.

10 days out from the PM's briefing it's good to hear some positive news!

Thanks for sharing @Sam Heward. It's crazy for us in Australia to hear these numbers, man, it's just mind boggling. Our hearts go out to communities all over the world who are feeling the deep effects of this terrible situation. Wishing you all well, and hoping for a return to some levels of normality soon. Stay positive and strong. 😢

5 reasons to be optimistic.

1) January is over.

2) Vaccination programmes are (generally) going well.

3) Infection appears to offer long lasting protection and the variants can be beaten.

4) @Ultra X are launching not one, but two new events in the next 7 days. Mega.

5) The Rugby is back.

Occasionally (very occasionally) a new connection on social media leads to a real life conversation. Of them occasionally (very occasionally) you end up connecting with someone truly inspiring. That happened this week and we're gonna make some cool stuff happen together.

Anyone who wants to chat business, endurance sport, running or just chew the fat on what's gonna happen next with covid do drop me a line ([email protected]) 🤘

About 12 hours before this picture was taken we'd had to reroute a 40 km course due to an elephant on the trail, find a new campsite (we had a new finish line) and source some booze (not easy over the Sri Lankan New Year). ⁣

For the last couple of years, I have set new year’s resolutions/goals here. The aim to keep me accountable. The problem with these is what happens when the goalposts change. ⁣

2020 forced us all into taking a back seat. Covid's provided an obvious reminder that life is so often out of our control. My goals went by the wayside. I failed.⁣

Following this, I've had a bit of a conundrum. Setting aims is important, sure, but success and failure aren't arbitrary (I actually think they are both steps in the same direction), and restricting a life of opportunities into single targets seems like a mistake. A load of good happened in 2020, even if it wasn't in the way I'd have expected. ⁣

Perhaps the idea of landing somewhere specific is too finite. Instead, this year how about setting some values, surrounding yourself with some good people and heading down the open road, realising that you can't decide what happens next, but you can control how to react when next comes... ⁣

21 I'm coming for ya.
