My sporting background is dominated by Gaelic Football and Soccer but over the past couple of years I've become more involved in individual sports including running, cycling and combined adventure race events.While I definitely don't consider myself an elite endurance athlete (just finishing The Race will be achievement enough for me!) , I'm relishing the chance to push myself to both my physical and mental limits, and it's great to be able to do it all in the name of such a worthy cause as Self Help Africa.
