It’s been a while since I have posted anything- But it doesn’t mean I haven’t been doing anything… So here is some news.
I had a bit of publicity towards the end of last year- This Article in my local newspaper and My Cape Epic Article in the Diabetes Focus Magazine.
I came 147th overall out of 600 in the ABSA Cape Epic this year with my partner Bruce Huges- What an awesome event that pushed me to my limits. I have been writing an awesome article to be published soon. So keep a lookout.
Hit the Orange River marathon again- Great vibe!
Kat and I came 3rd this weekend the WCAD Palmiet 100km Adventure race. My First adventure race I learned a lot! Mainly about Route selection than anything else.. Oh and to take a Syringe & needle (that I had for blisters) in case your insulin pump swaks out!

This adventure racing series is going to be awesome! Can’t believe I have not done any AR before.
I’d like to say congrats to Dannie Otto (Also a Type 1 Diabetic) who completes the Knysna Oyster Festival Big 5! In a very respectable time coming in 50th overall! This consists of a half marathon, 75km MTB, 100km Road Ride, 15km Featherbed Trail run and the DueSouth Exterra…….. All in one week!
Next event.. the MTN 104km MTB Ultra Marathon in wellington. Wish me luck…
