Post natal depression

How getting outside helped me through a difficult stage in my life:

From not being able to make a decision about anything, I couldn’t even choose butter in the supermarket. By getting outside and setting small targets, I have completed 6 marathons, countless half marathons, 3 Ironman triathlons, 7 70.3 triathlons and lots more individual events. I have two super kids that love to be outside with me.

Getting outside and getting active is my life. Without it, I can’t exist.

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.
