Wow, I am in awe!
Last week I had the pleasure to meet Rosie Swale Pope who at 57 years old set off to run around the world! Yes, around the world, it only took her 5 years.

She gave a talk at our local running shop MOTI. Very interesting and inspiring and involved stories of wolves, bears, encounters with a naked man with a gun and being stranded with frostbite!

I went to Bath (S.W England for those not from the UK) the next day to support her in her current venture 26 marathons in 26 days around the UK http://www.rosies26marathonsin26days.co.uk/ gosh, I am so in awe her attitude is unbelievable!

Definitely got me thinking and planning for next year!

She's quite a character, isn't she? I met her many (about 30) years ago when she was sailing around the world with her family.
