Invest in you

It’s easy to be put off making the initial leap into an outdoor activity by the cost of kit. Think of it as an investment in you. I spent a fair amount of money on a wetsuit, socks, gloves, tow float, hat, in order to start going wild swimming. It is without a doubt, the best money I have ever spent. I feel happier, healthier and more in control of my life than I can ever remember.

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.
