Today I am speaking to Lowri Morgan @_lowrimorgan - ultra runner, broadcaster, running coach and Mum of one who is currently training for Ironman Wales. Apologies for my dog briefly interrupting our chat!Lowri talks about her adventures before her son - including the Jungle Ultra and being the only person to complete the brutally cold 350 mile 6633 Ultra in the Arctic.When she became pregnant she continued to run 5 miles a day and started running again 2 weeks post birth to train for the 3 Peaks Yacht Race in the first all female team.Lowri then went on to compete in the Dragons Back Race across Wales and talks passionately about her love for endurance events.Becoming a mum has not slowed Lowri down and if anything she believes it has made her stronger and that she is able to be a role model for her son and show him that we have to work hard in order to achieve.You can find out more about Lowri on her website - lowrimorgan.co.uk, her coaching at @run.fluence and read her book -Beyond Limits.I hope you enjoy this episode. If so, please take the time to leave a review on Apple Podcasts and even better, share this with a mum friend or anyone you think might be inspired by Lowri's story.

I can only say 'WHAT A MINDSET'! They told her she couldn't, so she did. What makes someone tick, that has run a 150 mile Amazon Jungle Ultra Marathon? Or a 350 mile Arctic Circle Ultra Marathon? Listening to Lowri was inspiring. She has done so much in her career across a heap of different sporting and media disciplines, and it's all fuelled by understanding her WHY!

Lowri Morgan is blooming' incredible. She is an ultra runner (despite a being told after a rugby accident that she would never run again), BAFTA winning presenter for S4C, Eisteddfod winner, and has lived with a nomadic tribe in Namibia. She is one of the few people on the planet to have taken the 2.5 hour submersion journey underwater (that's just to get to the sea bed) to see the Titanic in her final resting place. She has completed the 200 mile Dragon Back Ultra Race, the 350 mile Arctic Ultra and the 220km Jungle Marathon. She is quite possibly the toughest women I've ever met. She is a lesson in perseverance, in saying 'yes' and the woman who brings us the nine life rules of Nel. Buy Lowri's book, Beyond Limits from your local book shop or the usual outlets.
