My name’s Andy Dukes and if you’re looking for a mid-life crisis, you’ve come to the right place. That’s what my wife would say anyway – with a simple raised eyebrow. The truth is that I don’t feel like that at all. I’m one of the luckiest guys I know. I’ve got a great job, a wonderful family and feel healthier than I did 20 years ago. So what better time to have an adventure? I’m 46 years old and young enough to make this happen.
I’ve no interest in working for the next 20 years and then stumbling into retirement. I’d rather have some fun now and then go back to work afterwards. If you enjoy working then it’s not a problem.
So, the mission is simple, on paper at least – ride around the world and run six marathons on six continents – maybe seven on seven? Let the adventure begin!
