Spanish triathlete Josef Ajram likes to push himself in life, taking calculated risks that bring great rewards. It is the challenge that drives Josef and in 2011 he will face his biggest yet when he completes the EPIC5: five Ironman contests in five days on the island of Hawaii.
Josef describes himself as obsessive and if he’s passionate about something then he won’t stop until he’s the best at it. He believes that to make dreams come true you need to call upon all the resources available and never become complacent or resigned to anything other than success.
While winning is clearly an objective, the triathlete’s philosophy is to feel good about his performance in the first instance. Josef even admits to enjoying his triathlon training more than the actual competitions. In 2010 he was a finisher in the Everis Tour – 3,850km over 23 stages – and was the Raids Champion of Spain with Team BUFF Thermocool. He also finished the Titan Desert event and the famed Marathon des Sables, where he was fourth with his team ‘Where is the limit?’.
