I am Tofe Evans, an ultramarathoner who has run over 5000 miles in the past 3 years (including 60km down the slopes of Mt Everest) to raise money for cancer research
Hi all, I'm Tofe (but people usually just call me crazy). Proof.
I've spent the past years doing the wildest endurance events I can think of to push my limits and raise money for cancer research.
It started with my battle to overcome depression. I realized that I was able to escape from the dark pit of depression when I was pushing myself. I started doing crazy events like:
- Ultramarathon down Mt Everest to raise money for Cystic Fibrosis
- A 24hr, 162km run in memory of Craig Percival
- 100km walk holding 25L of water across my shoulders
- A 12hr swim dedicated to SLSC Nippers
- An 80km Stand Up Paddleboard for Youth Adversity
All in all, I did over 40 endurance events in one year (here's a list) and still do them to this day. I realized was that these events helped me develop practical resilience — a combination of gratitude, adversity, and mindset that made me happier and more fulfilled.
Five thousand miles later, I'm in the best place of my life. I've raised tens of thousands of dollars for charity, and had the privilege of sharing my story at SXSW and other major stages.
My goal now is to help others develop practical resilience. My book, Everyone Has A Plan Until Sh!t Hits the Fan, is the bible on the topic, and I also just released a course called Six Pack Mind for those who prefer to learn that way.
If you have questions about practical resilience, endurance athletics, or what the hell is going on in this crazy head of mine... AMA!
