Mike's Ironman for the Smile Foundation

Mike's Ironman for the Smile Foundation

Personal message

What inspired me to enter 70.3 – literally started out as a “if you do it I’ll do it between Paul Bester and myself”, since he’s now going for 70.3 number 2 I had to finally take the plunge.

And as he so aptly put it, it is the cheaper option for a “mid-life crises”, although at the rate I’m going I’m not sure my Discovery Medical Aid will agree.

Been on the bucket list for a few years now, so here we are.
