I am retired but very active. I run Ultra Marathons and take part in many outdoor activities, generally trying to live life to the full. Since I have retired I have done voluntary work for a Childrens’ Hospice, race companies running Ultra Marathons and now I am now a Disaster Aid Response Team member deployable as required. I like motivational quotes hence the name of my site. When I start a difficult task such as an Ultra Marathon or a disaster relief deployment, in my mind I am the Man in the Arena.
