As part of the plan to finish my first Ironman race, I have decided to use a coach.

The reasons for this are -

I am very busy with our business, and all the change that this is going through, and will continue to go through during 2011.

I have the best family anyone could wish to have, and spending time with the 3 loves of my life is essential.

To be able to receive a tailored, custom made plan, and be able to get feedback on it.

I really like the idea of being advised and mentored by a coach who has an amazing track record of 10
IM finishes, and who qualified for Kona,

To this point, my goals for Ironman Wales are to, -

Enjoy the hell out of what should be a quite amazing day in my homeland.

Finish the race, injury free.

Finish strong, with a smile on my face,

Finish as close to the (yet to be determined) target time.

Have the genuine option of getting my second tattoo.

I am going to start my coached regime on New Years Day 2011, and boy, will that be one of the best resolutions I ever did!

So, the investment for now, will not be in the form of more carbon, lycra, or other lovely kit, but more of an investment in structure, advice,and genuine experience from someone who has most definitely 'been there & done that'

  1. Hi Jason,
    I'm working with HealthRally, a new software company focused on health motivation. I found you via your tweets, so I'm assuming you are health-oriented, tech savvy and like to try new things.

    We'd like you to try HealthRally and give us feedback before we bring it to the public. We think you would be a great fit. is a private social network where you choose a health goal like losing weight, pick a reward that could motivate you, and then invite your close friends and family to cheer you on and motivate you to succeed with pledges toward your reward.

    It's a new approach, and we are seeing our first group of users achieve their goals and have a bunch of fun in the process.

    Can I send you a link to sign in and try?

    Just send me a note at
