Gregory Burns

We are here to complete, not compete, when you compete you measure yourself again others, but when you complete, you are trying to beat yourself.
It has been such an honour to me that Gregory Burns, the inspirational athelete who completed Ironman Korea on a hand bike and wheel chair, has found my humble blog. He left me a message for his new blog, this is a compulsory reading for the regulars of Freeyasoul Adventure. Here is what he said in his speech to us in Korea, "We are here to complete, not compete, when you compete you measure yourself again others, but when you complete, you are trying to beat yourself."

Congradulation Greg and look forward to here about your next challenge!

Wow that is one of the best quote I've read in a long long time. "We are here to complete, not compete, when you compete you measure yourself again others, but when you complete, you are trying to beat yourself."

well said.
so what's your next race? or are you taking the rest of the year off? i assume the usual trialwalker and the wilson's trail race is too easy for you now. :)

two more action asia (taiwan, hk) trailwalker will do it too, aim for sub-20hrs. next year, I am planning to do the Gobi March, do you think I should really pick up triathlon and do a Ironman in 2008 with Alex?
