Ep. 21 - How To Build Resilience & Fiona Oakes Interview

March 9, 2021

Please consider donating to Tower Hill Stables, they have been struggling through Covid and your financial support will make such a huge, direct impact. Thank you.

 

 

I run through a few methods to help build resilience before talking to endurance runner and founder of Tower Hill Stables Fiona Oakes. 

 

Fiona Oakes became the fastest woman to run a marathon on all seven continents & the North Pole in the world. She is the subject of the documentary, 'Running For Good' and in 2015, completed 6 official marathons in 6 days on 6 continents. 

 

This was recorded back in October 2019.
