Feeling like you need a motivational nudge toward your goals this year? This episode of Many Happy Miles offers a double dose of inspiration from two amazing women. In this second half of a two-part “So Epic” theme (check out Part 1 here), Dimity and Sarah WF bring on two more mother runners who truly took their accomplishments above and beyond in 2022, including…

  • Rachel Jones, from Colorado, who, recently became the first woman—and only the fourth person ever—to hike the Manitou Incline, a legendary set of steep, mountainside steps, 1,000 times in 365 days. (Spoiler: She completed many of those climbs while pregnant!)

  • Lynn Marks, of North Carolina, who completed her very first Ironman triathlon (that’s a 2.4-mile swim, 112-mile bike, and 26.2-mile run) at the age of 58.

We hope their stories inspire you to bust past your fears and go after your own epic adventure in 2023!
