BE-ING INGRID

IN PURSUIT OF A ROUTE LESS BOR-ING

ABOUT ME

Home: Welcome

BE-ING ORDINARY IS NOT ON MY 'TO-DO' LIST

I was born the usual way, on a Wednesday, the youngest of four children. The year was 1970. The only thing strange about my birth was that it was in Springs, and not Bedfordview. A tough break for someone who dreaded be.ING ordinary.  Moving to Benoni didn't help much. 

As a child and young adult I lived for ball sports, especially tennis and hockey.  But my soul became restless. I yearned for adventure. This was probably inevitable. My parents were descendants of the Voortrekkers and 1820 settlers, so the allure of hardship and suffering was bound to be embedded somewhere in my pre-frontal cortex. I just had to be me. Naturally I vegetated to endurance sport, an activity as  inconsistent with my physiology as describing someone as pretty ugly. Unfortunately I had not chosen my parents wisely.  During my conception they certainly sounded like endurance athletes. I soon learned that they were NOT Olympic rowers or supreme aerobic athletes.  


As a result, my quest to become an endurance athlete has been a journey. Unlike Spiderman I have yet to be bitten by a radioactive spider. I live in hope. In the meantime I secretly wear my son's Spiderman suit and hope ......that I don't burst out of the seams or stretch it too much.

I can only try to be me. I invite you to share my journey and many adventures. The highs and the lows. The success and the failure. I have some crazy things planned. You are welcome to come push your boundaries and suffer with me. Or, just watch, laugh and learn as I take my middle-aged body on some badass, epic adventures.

BECOM-ING SUPERTH-ING

Home: Welcome

OK: WHAT IS  ON MY 'TO-DO' LIST?

AND WHAT IS ON THE 'HAV-ING DONE' LIST?

By now you get the idea that I love push-ing myself to the limits. And I love shar-ing!

I have spent the greater part of my life enter-ing challenge after challenge.

And from 2022, I am plann-ing one per month.

But before that, I want to share some of my past adventures. Check out my blog...

And my book!

The blog is a freebie - logically.

You can download the book in PDF format. Feel free to share it...but kindly ask your friends to rush to this site and show their love with a subscription / donation.
