Manage episode 290007966 series 2552883
„My biggest mistake: I never prepared for the afterparty.“
In this podcast episode I‘m talking to Jenny Tough, one of the most inspiring and successful women in self support bikepacking racing. She‘s won both, the Silk Road Mountain Race and the Atlas Mountain Race. Besides this she is a pioneer with worlds firsts in trail running, challenging herself to run across a mountain range on every continent. Spoiler: there's only one left to finish this project.
Jenny Tough has traveled to more than 70 countries by herself. We talk about being a woman in the outdoors, solo racing, trail running and how she prepares for expeditions in countries where women don‘t have equal rights. She also speaks openly about her own struggles with body image and confidence and the change in perception she wants to be a part of.
I am honored to present you a multifaceted conversation with a wonderful person who shares her values, her experiences, her WHY and much more. Enjoy this English podcast episode of Die Wundersame Fahrradwelt!
