Bring your friends along for the ride.

Whatever you do, at whatever level, you’re doing something that most people aren’t.

Most people don’t go running in the dark, albeit slowly. They don’t cut their hike short because they are tired, because they don’t ever start, and they can’t navigate using a map and compass because they have never tried.

But many would like the opportunity to try these things. I’ve persuaded many friends to dip their metaphorical and literal toe in the water of outdoor activities. And I get as much from this as they do. Take your friends with you.

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.
