I FEEL GOOD…the journey to a happier being

Dec 19 2018

The deep dive into the complexity of what makes us human beings and the levels and layers of our intricate design make for a rollercoaster ride of unbelievable excitement as we investigate and interrogate that which makes us tick. Until we actually recognize and realize who, what where when and very importantly our Why we do the things we do, it becomes extremely difficult to navigate the way to truly experiencing and finding real fulfillment and our full expression. As extreme type athlete's the need to bring your WHOLE- self is vital if you are to be your best and rather...

#overit

Dec 19 2018

Lexi is #overit: Here's why. I’m so over the motivational quotes, fitness tees and Instagram boyfriends. I’m so over dog filters and perfectly posed photos. The quest for the perfect Insta photo has been the death of originality and the usher of insecurity. Let me say from the onset that I do believe social media is a powerful tool that can be used quite effectively to build relationships, establish a network, increase visibility and so on. But these days every Tom, Dick and Mary is a motivational speaking, part-time model with a Udemy degree in smoothie nutrition. I get it;...

Race to Stanford

Nov 28 2018

Duncan tell us abut his 'race to Stanford’ I don't like a lot of things. I don't like coffee rides, I don't like selfies while on a group ride, I don't like moms who chuck their 4 screaming children into my lane at the pool and then act surprised when I swim over them, and I don't like making excuses for racking up a whole bunch of PWs ( Personal Worsts) at a race, it's a sign of weakness! Now I've done a few races, (I'm old enough to to be Riaan's dad), some good and some bad....... and then...

How to Grow Lighter

Nov 28 2018

If what we all crave is Connection and vulnerability is the way we Connect - what's with the Brilliant Disguises? There is something in us all that feels too exposed if we showed each other what is really going on below, that which we think and feel when we are quiet enough to listen.  It has many names but I call it the false self or our personal veneer and if we were to be exposed for what we feel is the real me, what would others think and what would others say?  We all wear complex and strategic suits...

DC 2018 by the Jolly (?) Jolly

Nov 28 2018

DC 2018 - what a race, and what a privilege to ride with the MTD team! Things I learned from this year’s race (some serious, some ridiculous, and some written in the post-ride sugar-level crash, so just go with it...): There are two types of fun in the world: Type A fun and Type B fun. Type A? That’s when you know you’re having fun. The music is playing. The people are smiling. And you’re probably embarking on a journey to do DC in 8hrs+.Type B, though? Yoh. That’s only really fun when you look back on it later... When...

The Otter Trail

Nov 28 2018

Darrels Otter Trail The Otter trail, Africa’s most revered hiking trail which traces the shoreline of the Tsitsikamma from one end of the national park to the other. This five day hiking trail, normally preserved for hikers who set off daily in groups of 12 is off limits to trail running outside of this event leading it to be known as the “forbidden run”. For 4 days a year SANParks open up the trail for the runners lucky enough to secure an entry into one of the two events: the challenge for the more average trail runner with a cut...

Winning the Last Race?

Oct 17 2018

I noticed the heading is a conundrum! Winning a race Last? is another way of looking at it, but noticing is the point of the article. Winning is not the only way to win. When you are naturally talented you believe it's your goal to stand on top of the podium and when you are less talented you accept the only podium you will don is the one in your head.  The point being winning is a concept rather than a position. The mindset of a Winner is birthed in the reality of being grateful just to BE  and to...
