Adventurer Jenny Tough ran 900km across Kyrgyzstan via the Tien Shan mountains
Jenny Tough has travelled six continents, solo. She has cycled around Europe, paddled through the South American jungle, run 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. She believes that everyone has the spirit of an explorer within them, and that adventures are constantly at our fingertips. While some of her adventures have been epic, year-long expeditions, others have been equally gruelling micro-adventures, only hours away from the comfort of home. Her goal in sharing her adventures is to inspire more individuals to go find their own adventure.
Jenny says, "It all started when I was 10... And my parents lead by the ultimate example by taking leave from their 9 to 5, and moving our family of four onto our small sailboat to explore the Caribbean and learn about far-flung cultures, not returning back to normality again until I was 12. What happened in that period undoubtedly sealed my fate as an explorer and adventurer."
