You are capable, you are strong enough.

There is always a mental block for women in the initial stages of participating in something that is male-led. Just sack off that feeling of anxiety – you are capable and you are strong enough. You’ll never build on yourself if you don’t take opportunities that challenge you. The Great Outdoors is amazing for your physical side, but even better mentally and emotionally. You’d be surprised at how far you can push yourself and how much it ends up improving your life indoors!

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.
