Tough Girl Podcast Part 3

Welcome to part 3 of the 7 Woman 7 Challenges Tough Girl Podcast. I feature at 2:47.30 Minutes before this interview, I was busy having a battle with myself….. “Shall I pretend everything is ok and be positive?” or “shall I tell the truth and say I’m having a hard time with fundraising?” After an extremely full day (video diary below) it seemed the latter happened.

28/03/17The guys from Phoenix FM were celebrating their 10th birthday and hosting the show on the road, which was fascinating to see. A few bits of technology whizzed their voices and music across to 40,000 people in Essex. Incredible!

Primal Events F.E.A.R. : 24 Hour Endurance Event

Event date: Saturday 29th November 2014  I’m eating my dinner one evening and checking what Facebook has to offer when I see a post about an event called Primal Events F.E.A.R. I give it a ‘Like’ and write a comment like “this looks cool” and think nothing more of it. A friend saw I’d ‘Liked’ the post, he knew the Race Directors (RDs) and could … Continue reading Primal Events F.E.A.R. : 24 Hour Endurance Event
