For me, why I’m doing this is much more important than what I'm doing. I want to show that limitations are perceptions. I want to show that despite being an ordinary person and not a professional triathlete, I can still do the most extreme triathlon ever completed.
A lot of people have told me I’m crazy. My idea is extreme, but I don’t consider myself extreme or crazy. With a challenge like this it’s very easy to see the progress and see when you have achieved something. There is an end date and a clear result, but with a lot of other things in life it’s not that clear cut. Yes, it’s a crazy challenge, but I’m not trying to do it without the right preparation. Like anything in life, I’m taking small steps in order to make this possible, but lots of people seem to just look at the end goal and not the steps I’m taking to get there.
Besides, if people don’t question what you’re doing and whether you can achieve it, it’s because you’re not pushing yourself enough. You need to divide people. I believe that’s critical in order to make a difference.
