Find Your Limits, And Beat Them…

By challenging ourselves we can find our limits. And then we can beat them.

I prefer to live on the edge - the edge of my limits. I find my edge. I feel it for a while. And then I take a leap. A leap to see if I can beat that limit I have found. Each time I leap my perception of what I can do - what I am capable of achieving - changes. For me, life is about finding - and beating - my limitations.

In 2004 I received a diagnosis of CMT - a progressive degenerative nerve disease.  In 2007 I received a diagnosis of Ehlers Danlos Syndrome Hypermobility. In 2009 I decided that I needed to change my point of view about living with limitations.  I decided to see just how strong, fit and able I could become. So that if, someday, I were to decline, I would do so from a position of strength and with a lifetime of laughter and experiences that I would have collected along the way.

On this site write about all aspects of my life - from sport to the kitchen, from what I read in the newspapers to what I hear from my doctors. I share how I manage my health and well being, and about my approach to fitness and healthy living.  You can support the efforts to find a cure for CMT.  You can follow my progress as I seek to constantly redefine - and beat - my own limitations.  And I hope that you can find a bit of inspiration to do the same.
