For me it's all about setting myself a challenge in the year and then training for it.
Next year's challenge is a race I set against a friend of mine. He is a fund raiser for Motor Neurone Disease and has bought a London taxi for driving around the country raising awareness.
Next June we're having a race. We leave Liverpool in England at 6pm on Saturday. He drives his taxi 350 miles to the mountain Ben Nevis in Scotland. I cycle my bike 80 miles to Mount Snowdown in Wales. We each have to wait until first light at 5am, we then climb up and down our respective mountains - Snowdon should be about 4 hours, Ben Nevis is about 5 - get back on our transport and race back to Liverpool.
The winner is the first one back to Liverpool, hopefully within 24 hours of leaving.
What keeps you motivated and do you have any challenges for yourself this year?
