    Steph Cooke - A mature plodder's forays in trekking and ultra racing. Marathon des Sables and going on - A Pennine Journey.

    “Being a very shy and uncoordinated child I used to avoid anything active until a family holiday to the Lake District ignited a passion for walking and the outdoors. 

    I love to get outside and active and to push my body to see just what it’s capable of. 

    The excitement of tackling a long-distance trail appeals to me, but I also enjoy discovering the adventure my local area has to offer. I find joy in immersing myself in nature- wherever you are you can find great beauty.” - Steph Cooke

A dude can enjoy this.

I found this person Sarah Williams on YouTube. She is an actual person. I figured this was just woman stuff but the inspiration and lessons definitely transcend gender. This person is like Navy Seal mental toughness or of course SAS as she is a Brit. This kind of warrior mental strength is hard to fathom but she lets us into the thought process to make mental warrior’s out of anyone with ears to listen.
