I don't like talking about people as my hero, I'm not sure why, it just seems as though I'm making them out to be more than they are. However, this guy, Mark Beaumont, is a significantly better and way more accomplished rider than me. He has already broken the world record for riding around the world, but I meet him tonight as he is on his way around the world again. This time his aim, and he is currently in target, is 80 days. A good week of riding for me is half of what he is doing everyday to make this.
We as humans are capable of incredible feats. It surprises me how few of us have the willingness and mental strength to achieve what we're actually capable of. Maybe one day I'll take on Tour Aotearoa and achieve something far greater than I ever have before (physically).
