Tribesports User of the Week: Malachy K

Malachy profileWhich has been your toughest Tribesports Challenge and which are you most proud of?

I always seem to have problems sticking with any challenge that lasts for more than a week, maybe I should write it down on a sheet of paper and stick it up next to the bedroom door, so it's the first thing I see in the morning.

Most proud of running a half marathon as my first ever race and trashing my target time by almost 20 minutes.
