Always believe! Life is too short grasp any opportunity to try something new.

I’ve never been a runner, but in 2015 I did my first ever trail half marathon. Now I focus on Trail Ultras even though my last one had a DNF what I learnt about myself and how I could push both my body and mind has changed my outlook. Boundaries are there to be pushed and energise the body and the mind.

If I'm outside I'm happy! Fell running, mountain biking, climbing or skiing I just love getting out and pushing myself as hard as I can. As a women in adventure, I have found female role models really inspiring and motivating. There are definite moments I have really doubted myself and considered packing something in or giving up, but it's at these points looking to someone I can relate to, be that a friend or pro, really helps. Though this project I would love to find more of this type of relateable inspiration as well as being part of the wider movement to help remove any barriers to participation.
