Calfman – like the clappers?

This is completely new territory, I have decided to do some adding up and try to figure out what might work as a bit of a plan for this Calfman race. In my exceptionally limited experience so far the basic plan has been dream up a target time (based on nothing), rock up, try as […]

Not the attitude really ;)

Let me start by saying that I know this is wrong attitude!! What is it you learn in sales 1-0-1, never start with a negative… Guess that was another day I just wasn’t listening!! So having broken into this little mini ramble perhaps I should get to the point?

Lead me not into temptation…

Bucket List Triathlons
