Lowey is already a legend at 25 but give yourself a break - you can't keep up with the likes of him!


i like stories like this


Alex, this is what I like about you. I read your blog, and it makes me want to do something. As a near 45 yo myself, I'm just going for a run now, and have vowed to do next years London Marathon. Cheers mate.

great post and you're right - Tom, Fergal and Mickey have raised the bar massively

now get out there and get training!


I have trained with you Alex and YOU ARE FIT! who cares if people are fitter than you, lifes to short for all this. Just remember you only go round once and as long as your fit and healthy (which apart from your niggly problem areas you are) you should be consentrating on having fun, enjoying yourself, being nice to your body and doing what YOU want. Stop comparing yourself to other people its not good for you , you are you and thats that ! I think you should go off to Costa Rica, have a nice time, spend quality time with your family and not worry about this and surf your arse off, But I insist that you come back smilin with no worry lines that your not as good at something as someone else. IT DOESN'T REALY MATTER.

Cheers to all on this (especially you Allie!).

I think what I was trying to say is that it's inspirational encountering the likes of Tom Lowe, but that, yes, the truth is that the days when I might have been as fit as him (if they ever existed) are over. That said, it's good to keep the faith. Even if I was at half the pace of Stef and Tom, it was still great to be in the fresh air, opening my lungs, training.

Does that make sense?

Right, off to Costa Rica soon - with a smile!

Finally, the ballet is the daughter of enumerations. the sweat of my people, I said look, no, no part of. My daughter, the family friend was sitting next to us, be a two hours to see such a big difference, thanks to the good I have chosen. I was, and nobody on the other hand, we see a lot of Famous Watches Brands..

The man who has made up his mind to win will never say "impossible ".Do you think so?


Hmm, you say 'decent and likeable bloke'; however he did once stab a classmate in the eye, leaving him half-blind. True story.

We must always not hesitate as well substantially while in the initial 50 % of our lives, even though we must always not regret at what we’ve performed through the other 50 %. Did you concur with me?

There is certainly without doubt that pleasure is one of the most treasured issue on the planet. Lacking it, lifestyle can be empty and meaningless. delight is made up in contentment. A guy who's dissatisfied with his current situation is often in distress.

The more difficult you operate, the sooner you are likely to be successful. Excellent luck, decent wellness, hood cheer. I desire you glad everyday

In my opinion, most certifications (i.e. Microsoft, A+, etc.) are useless pieces of paper that, at most, show somebody spent some time scanning through books or sample tests and can regurgitate answers to questions that might appear on a "certification" exam.

Hands-on industry experience is far more valuable and useful in the real world. It proves (1) that you indeed possess sufficient knowledge of a given topic/technology, and, (2) if you are confronted with a problem or situation in which you lack expertise, you are resourceful enough to obtain (whether it be via colleagues, reading manuals, conducting web research, calling vendor support, etc.) the information necessary to arrive at an effective solution.

Hi Tom, trying desperately to get in touch with Matt , received two letters from him while he was somewhere in the world, and so were we. Back in Yalls until March then back in the u.k. Would dearly love to catch up with him. Great surfing career Tom. Come a long long way since we first met you in St Ives and Dunsborough.Congratulations.
