Barefoot Running, Mental Wellbeing and more...
Well I reckon it's officially summer in the UK. Went for a bike ride yesterday and felt incredibly over-dressed in long sleeves...
Here are some exciting adventures for you to keep a watch on:
Anna McNuff will be running 100 marathons across the UK barefoot. You can sign up to run a section with her or ask her to visit your GirlGuide group. More about the adventure here.
Jenny Tough finished running the Southern Alps last week (23 days & 760km). That's mountain range 4 done, two more to go! More from Jenny here: http://jennytough.com/run-the-world-mountains
Fiona Quinn will be cycling from Gibraltar to Athens over 6000km and more than 60,000m elevation. All about the trip here: http://fionalquinn.com/mediterranean
Women in Adventure and Shextreme have released their survey results on Mental Wellbeing of women in the outdoors.
Ellie Dominey has written a very thoughtful post about motherhood and being an athlete. She's a triathlete and 1 month into being a mum. Post here.

QUOTE OF THE WEEK
WHEN EXCITEMENT AND FEAR COLLIDE THERE CAN BE ONLY ONE OUTCOME: ADVENTURE
- Anna McNuff
ISSUE 8 ONLINE NOW
Issue 8 is now online and DOWNLOADABLE.
Several of you emailed asking if you could take the magazine away with you on adventures without internet. It felt wrong that you couldn't.
I couldn't imagine anything more fitting than snuggling down into a sleeping bag with Intrepid Magazine.
So, you asked and we give: there is now a download link beside the usual online viewer. It's only Issue 8 at the moment, but I'll be going back through the library very soon.
