I missed the chance to hear Jason Lester speak in person as I was stuck in meetings. I didn't know who he was prior, but one sentence made me want to read up on him.

He's a disable athlete that has completed FIVE Ironmans in FIVE days.

Knocked down by a lady driver who ran a red light when he was 12, he not only broke 20 over bones, his right arm was left completely paralyzed. He used sports to get himself back into living life and is now an accomplished sportsman. He swims using just one arm..

I heard that he was distributing some copies of his recently launched book - Running on Faith so I rushed down. Didn't manage to get a copy but I spoke to him for awhile and he told me that would be coming to Singapore in early December to launch an ultra race!
