What will I be up to in 2017?

"I`ll never find out what I can do, unless I do all I can to find out."

To realise the value of one year:
Ask a student who has failed an exam.

To realise the value of one month;
Ask a Mother who has given birth to a premature baby.

To realise the value of one week:
Ask an editor of a weekly newspaper.

To realise the value of one hour:
Ask the lovers who are waiting to meet.

To realise the value of one minute:
Ask a person who has missed the train, bus or plane.

To realise the value of one second:
Ask the person who has survived an accident.

To realise the value of one millisecond:
Ask the person who has won a silver medal in the Olympic Games.

Time waits for no one.
Treasure every moment you have.
You will treasure it even more when you share it with someone special.
Just remember - none of us will be leaving here alive, so reach for your potential.

Event Schedule for 2017

So who cares you might well ask - It is more of a way for me to make sure my friends, acquaintances, race directors, workshop attendees, or those just kind enough to wish me well can know where I`ll be or where they can visit me.

Yours truly with the greatest sports commentator in the universe - Mr. Phil Liggett
