The headlines over the past few weeks have rightly been dominated by a certain female ultra runner – Jasmin Paris. Not only did she obliterate the course record for the scarily-titled Spine Race, she was breastfeeding at the time, so had to pump milk at each checkpoint. I honestly think she is up there with extraordinary sportspeople like Usain Bolt or Michael Phelps, breaking past, what was thought to be, the limits of human capacity.
It got me thinking of other female adventurers out there that I admire. Whenever I need a bit of inspiration and adventure ideas and what other women are getting up to out there, these are the ladies I look to. Just need to add Ms Paris to that list now.
