Original Post:

Not often do we get the opportunity to hear heroes on our doorstep. For the people of Ireland who attend major seminars and workshops to improve their wellbeing, businesses, sports abilities, and many other aspects of life, they normally need to trek off to the capital city. But not this month!! Westmeath man Gerry Duffy is coming to Donegal Town to give an exclusive workshop to business owners and sports enthusiasts an opportunity to learn more about achieving goals and not just making a dream “to-be” list. Gerry speaks from the hip. I once heard Gerry, in the same venue he is returning to, Solis Lough Eske Castle, talking about his struggles to where he moved to in his life. The mouth dropping audience hung on his every word as his emotions and positivity grimed from his athletic physic. I for one, was privileged to actually get speaking to him via an introduction by Joe Coyle. Being in my 2nd year of completing triathlons, I knew the training and dedication that is needed to race one Sprint Triathlon (750m Swim, 20K Cycle, 5KM Run).

 Ironman,Gerry Duffy

It’s only a wee spin down the road

But to hear how a man carried out 10 x Ironman races in 10 days consecutively, only words out come to my head was “He is mental and unreal”. An Ironman race consists of swim 3.8km, cycle 190 km and run a full marathon of 42.2 km to finish. Think about completing one of these between a 9hour and 18 hour period of endurance!!! Now multiply by 10. He mentioned that on day 10, he could not walk out from the swim and had to be carried from the water to the bicycle, just before his 190KM cycle. What kept him going mentally was the fact that he had 93% of the race completed and it’s only a “wee spin” to the finish line.

Can you overcome a challenge?

Questions to Ask if yourself!

Do you set goals?

Do you achieve your goals?

Setting is easier than getting isn’t it!

Are you setting ‘easier goals’ now because of failure to achieve more difficult goals in the past?

Would you like to go from unhealthy to super healthy, unfit to super fit?

Do you have personal, business or sporting goals you want to achieve in your life?

Where would you turn to for help?

Preferably to someone who had set and achieved massive goals in their life time.

 Gerry Duffy Decathon 32 marathons

 Gerry Duffy is one of those people.

Amazingly this previously, extremely shy guy has become one of Ireland’s leading motivational speakers, particularly in the area of goal getting ( we are all reasonably good at setting goals)

So what makes Gerry different? He walks the walk ( and runs and cycles and swims ‘the walk’)
