I’m a fairly typical NZ guy who was once quite fit, I grew up in the country, cycled to school, ran to university and walked and ran to work when I moved to the UK on my O.E.  and then something happened, the work hours got longer, the beer more often and then suddenly I wasn’t fit anymore, and I was getting fat, but that’s OK, I was still slim(ish) and fit(ish) so I didn’t need to change anything and just watch what I ate and do a bit more exercise and what do you know, I just got a little fatter and a lot less fit.

Then I turned 44 and I realised I couldn’t run for 5 minutes without feeling like I was going to be physically sick… I had turned into the guy you wanted to meet a bear with – you know, I don’t need to run faster than a bear, I just need to be able to run faster than the slow guy – I am that guy now…
