    K2 Mountain - Jason Black, Endurance Athlete.

    K2 Mountain - Jason Black, Endurance Athlete.

    Internationally renowned global endurance athlete and successful high altitude mountaineer Jason Black has spent the last 30 years as a high performance athlete having scaled the world’s highest mountains and raced to the end of the earth.  

    His accomplishments include summiting Mt Everest and the most technical and dangerous mountain of them all, K2.  
    The fatality rate on K2 is 25% compared to Everest with 6.5%. The main reasons why K2 is a tougher climb than Everest are the lack of Sherpas, support, fixed ropes and claimable routes.
    K2 also has more unpredictable weather and more frequency of avalanches. Then there’s the technicality and immediate steepness of the climb and the logistics of the climb and trek.

    At 8611 meters, it’s the second highest peak in the world, bested only by Everest at 8 848m. 2008 brought on one of the greatest tragedies in mountaineering history when 11 climbers died on K2 in a single day.

    Couch to 220K - Paula Wright, Ultra Running

    Couch to 220K - Paula Wright, Ultra Running

    10 years ago, the 36 year-old Paula was struggling with a life-threatening health condition, seriously overweight due to a debilitating form of diabetes contracted during pregnancy. She was on a cliff edge, her confidence shot, and the prospect of not being there to watch her kids grow up a genuine concern.
    “When my youngest was one, so I’m talking around 2011, I realised that I had a serious problem because I was just that heavy, so I decided I’d start walking. And walking didn’t really do anything, I started a bit of swimming, that didn’t work, I started diets and they would make the weight drop a bit but you can’t live with the diets – you have to live normally as well. So then I decided that’s it, I’ll start running, because I did like a running a bit before.”
    The literal and metaphorical distance Paula has travelled over the past seven years is borderline inconceivable. After all, her beginnings in the sport were humble, in the most extreme sense.
    “I couldn’t run past two lamp-posts before I was out of breath - I was so bad, I was so out of breath, I was just so out of shape. It took me well over seven or eight months before I could run from 0 to 5k, but the first 5k was actually the hardest.”
    This is a small part of her story adapted from the Nenagh Guardian.
