What are you messing around for being miserable? Change it. Living Adventurously 40.

Anna McNuff is fascinated by the powerful and delicate relationship that exists between mind and body. She ran 90 barefoot marathons through Britain to see if she could do it.

Anna McNuff is an adventurer, author, Ambassador for Girl Guiding, and the co-founder of Adventure Queens; the UK’s fastest growing women’s adventure community.
In 2019, Anna ran 2,352 miles (the distance of 90 marathons) through Britain – completely barefoot. 
Starting in the Shetland Islands and ending five months later in London, she weaved her way along rugged coastlines, through small villages, across moors, along beaches, over farmland and even pitter-pattered down the odd  A-road too.
Anna says, "I get my kicks by travelling the world on long, human powered journeys, and in sharing those journeys with others. When not running up mountains or sleeping in the wild, I encourage others to grab life by the balls (non-scientific term), and speak and write about the importance of adopting a growth mindset (scientific term), in everything we do.
With a background in psychology and a career as an elite athlete under my belt, I’m fascinated by the powerful and delicate relationship that exists between mind and body. I have an insatiable thirst for exploring the limit of human potential, and in better understanding the (often misunderstood) feelings of fear, self-doubt, vulnerability and courage."
Anna is awesome.
