Peter Barr

Sunshine Coast, Queensland, Australia

I grew up on sheep & cattle properties in NW Qld Australia, I spent 12 months working on a Merino Stud in the NSW Riverina then 12 months in New Zealand playing Rugby & working on a mixed farming operation in the Southern Alps. I then spent the next 20 yrs working & managing the family properties in central & western Qld, Sheep, Cattle & some Farming.

My passions are family, friends, food - including cooking, sports, mainly middle and long distance running, snow skiing, water skiing, surfing. Now living on the ocean after living so long in central Australia is wonderful; I love the ocean and the coastal lifestyle. Travelling the world is also on my bucket list and would like to do more of that.

I enjoy the physical and mental challenge that distance running presents; it's a bit like life really, train hard but smart, (listen to your body) prepare & manage the pain, stay focused, push yourself to the limits and learn from your mistakes! I love pushing past the pain barrier (the wall) if I can learn to manage that, I think I will be equipped for any situations that life can throw at me !

Bring on life and the next run!
