The Tough Girl Podcast is all about motivating and inspiring women and girls. I interview women who've overcome physical or mental challenges that have pushed them to their limits. They share their journey and what they’ve learnt. They talk about their failures and their successes, they give advice, tips and encouragement. I’m incredibly lucky to interview a real mixture of women, from elite athletes who are training for the next Olympics, to Arctic explorers, cross channel swimmers, ultra endurance athletes and normal women who’ve done extra ordinary challenges.
It’s about sharing stories, which will inspire and motivate. For example, Ali Young an awesome women who loves all types of running from 80m sprints to 24hr endurance races. She shares her top tips for getting into running, what your body goes through and why she's so passionate about the sport. I’d be very shocked if you listened to the episode and didn’t want to go for a run afterwards!
I’ve interviewed Antarctic Explorer - Felicity Aston, Ultra Running & Gluiness Word Record holder - Mimi Anderson, Double Olympian - Liz Yelling, Ocean Rower - Sally Kettle to name a few!
The podcast went live on Tuesday 4th August #ToughGirlTuesday and by the end of 2015, I’d interviewed over thirty women!
I’ve got some fantastic guests coming on in 2016 for example, Kathryn Bertine - Road Cyclist & Activist, Squash Falconer - who summited Mount Everest as well as doing many other awesome challenges.
