Almost a year ago I challenged myself to the extreme with Coast to Coast Scotland. It was a 170 km breathtaking course in the most mysterious and wild locations in Scotland. In 2 days we went from Nairn to Isles of Glencoe; cycling, running and kayaking. What an amazing but tough event it was!
How did I end up in Coast to Coast?
People who knew me 10-years back would never refer to me as the sporty type of person. I was a bit overweight (about 5-10 kg’s) and surely I wasn’t in a good shape. My priorities at that time were with my young family and with my career. A very stressful combination and I convinced myself I couldn’t find the time nor the need to exercise. 10-years back I couldn’t run longer than three minutes without gasping for air.
Sometimes I did an attempt, but finally not having enough character to carry on. Maybe you recognise this from your own behaviour. Then what made my behaviour change in the end? Well, the short answer is: I met Matthias, my new sporty partner, I noticed something during my yoga-classes and I was invited to a party.
