About Me
My life was (excluding what is left of my family) shit and then I discovered running... since then have discovered cycling and swimming. The latter of which I am shit at which is a problem as I am a recent convert to triathlon. My life is still shit but I am now considerably slimmer, have an obsession about kit (lycra) and feel smug about being fit when ever other bugger around me is getting bigger and slower.

I don't want to die but guess I will have to sometime but until then I continue to aim to do the London Marathon or the Great North Run (both of which are only for old, fat and stupid people). I did VLM in 2012, my time in it suggests I was old, fat and possibly stupid when I went over the startline.

Coach: What are your legs?

Argie: Springs. Steel springs.

Coach: What are they going to do?

Argie: Hurl me down the track.

Coach: How fast can you run?

Argie: As fast as a leopard.

Coach: How fast are you going to run?

Argie: As fast as a leopard!

Coach: Then let's see you fucking doing it!

Do drugs, get sick, get better, dope, fornicate, start a charity and Livestrong etc.

Currently National Open Water Swimming Champion (2013) at 200m Relay.
