Adam enjoys a challenge and has big goals for the year ahead. He talks to Sundried about life as an endurance athlete.

Have you always been into sport?

I have played tennis and skied since I was little, but having asthma made it difficult to do lots of exercise.

What made you decide to enter the world of triathlon?

I was inspired by friends who compete as well as major athletes like Rich Roll who opened my eyes to Ironman and ultra marathons.

What’s been your favourite race to date and why?

A Brecon Beacons half marathon. It was very hard but dogs were allowed so that made up for it. I think Angus our dog dragged me across the line.

And your proudest achievement?

My choice, my decision, to constantly try to improve who I am.

Have you ever had any racing disasters/your toughest race yet?

I under-trained for Beachy Head marathon and struggled with the second half. I am pretty sure I was overtaken by a man with a walking stick!

How do you overcome setbacks?

With compassion and reflection.

What advice do you wish you'd been given before you started competing?

I wish I had the mindset that it was more about the training and less about the event.

What are your goals for 2020?

I have a lot!

  • 2 half marathons.
  • 2500 metre swimathon.
  • 2 triathlons.
  • The three peaks – Scafell, Snowdon and Ben Nevis – by bike. I will cycle from Poole to Fort William and climb all three in under 240 hours.
  • Climb Mount Elbrus, the highest mountain in Europe.
  • Ironman 70.3 Weymouth.
  • Advanced yoga teacher training with Patrick Beach and Carling Harps.

Who do you take your inspiration from?

I have a huge list of friends and influences, such as ex-Cirque du Soleil athlete Darren Tait, yoga instructors like Patrick Beach and Finlay Wilson, and all-round amazing guys like Rich Roll. I try to surround myself with positive influences via Instagram, podcasts and books.

What do you like about Sundried and what’s your favourite bit of our kit?

I love the ethos and the 'why' behind the company. It is nice to know that employees of Sundried are looked after and they want to make a difference. The products are great, especially the recycled coffee and plastic products! I wish all companies operated like this. My favourite is probably my leggings, I use them for skiing, yoga and CrossFit.
