A Lesson in Motivation from an Ultra Marathon Runner

Last week our very own Maths teacher and Ultra Marathon runner, Mr Yves Luyens gave a motivational presentation to the whole school.

He drew upon his experience of running in the incredible 176km Monte Rosa Ultra Marathon up and down Alpine mountains to encourage all the students to believe that with patience and perseverance even the most daunting of challenges can be overcome: a lesson he hoped the students would apply to their studies and other endeavours.

His presentation included photos and video of the amazing scenery, sunrises and trails over which the three day race took place.

Check out the link to his Youtube video “Three sunrises on the UTMR 2018” and maybe he can inspire you as well to rise to some new challenges for 2019.
