From freezing cross country meets to epic swimruns, Helen Croydon has a long list of gruelling endurance events under her belt. But it wasn’t always so. I caught up with the former party girl to chat about her new memoir, This Girl Ran, and find out how she went from immaculate, rain-hating city girl to gritty endurance sport convert.
I’m a copywriter and ex-journalist who fell in love with obstacle course racing last year, and I LOVE reading about badass women in sport, fitness and adventure. So I’m on a mission to find them, share their stories, and quiz them about their training, their motivation, and insider tips (totally hoping some badass magic will rub off on me along the way!). Plus I’ll bring you how-tos, must-have kit and tales of epic from some of the coolest and toughest events on the planet.
