Further. Faster. Podcast Ep8 (Solo endurance athlete Jenny Tough)
Nov 29, 2018 Season 1 Episode 8
Montane

Welcome to episode 8 of Further Faster, in association with Montane. This is the podcast that invites ultra athletes, mountaineers and explorers to understand how, and why, they do what they do. 

In this episode, presenter Daniel Neilson talks to the remarkable expedition runner and fastpacking athlete Jenny Tough (yes that's her real name!) 

We say expedition runner, but it’s hard to really know how to define 30-year-old Canadian, now living in Scotland. She’s a runner, of course, but these days not racing so much. It is perhaps best to define her through her remarkable feats of endurance. Fastpacking across the mountains of Kyrgyzstan for three weeks, solo and unsupported. And most recently across the Bolivian Andes.

In the episode, Jenny talks about how she overcomes the physical and psychological strains of running for so long on her own. We talk about her training, and recovery, and also about the people she meets who make the mountains their home. There’s also some knitting chat. Jenny is great company.  Listen in.
