Our latest Inspired Edinburgh guest is Jenny Tough.
Jenny is an adventurer, endurance challenger, author, film maker, speaker and world traveller.
She’s travelled six continents solo, cycled around Europe, paddled through the South American jungle, ran marathons on four continents, hiked throughout Asia, trekked in Patagonia, dived with sharks, surfed in the North Sea, competed in numerous adventure races, and lived in five countries!
In 2016 she wrote her first book, ‘Keep The Sea To The Right’ which tells the tale of her solo 3,800-kilometre circumnavigation cycle of the Baltic Sea coastline and most recently she became the first person to run across Kyrgyzstan, an expedition which involved 25 days of running with a 12 kilogram rucksack, accessing ancient nomad trails high up in the Tien Shan mountains.
Her goal in sharing her adventures is to inspire people to go find their own adventure!
