Ultra Running with Sophie Power
Season 2, Ep. 9
If you have no intention of running an ultra marathon...don't speak to Sophie Power. Chatting with her will inspire you, help you trust in yourself and believe that you can achieve anything you want! Sophie became world famous when a photo of her breastfeeding her 3 month old son during the UTMB race went viral. In this episode she shared the message she wanted to convey with this photo, why she's so keen to get women to partake in ultra races and how she balances motherhood, work and training.
