Exploring the world, one adventure at a time.

Hello. I’m Anna, an adventurer, speaker and mischief maker. I get my kicks from exploring the world through long human powered (and slightly bonkers) journeys. On a mission to find the limit of my own potential, I’m hoping to help you unlock yours too. There are trails to be run, mountains to climb, dreams to chase and fears to face down. Let’s dance.

MY NEXT ADVENTURE

Barefoot Britain 

This summer, I’ll be running the distance of 100 marathons, through the UK – from the Shetland Islands to London. And if that’s not bonkers enough… I’ll be running completely barefoot, and talking to Girl Guides along the way about taking on challenges that they believe are just beyond their reach.

It’s official HUMAN BODIES ARE AMAZING!! 💫

I set out to just enjoy the London Marathon today, I never run with a watch (McNuff O’Clock is the best time after all) and I wasn’t breaking that vibe today, so I ran by feel... and I have to say, I felt rather spectacular! 🤸🏼‍♂️🦄

Well until mile 20 then it started to hurt, but hanging on for 6 miles is par for the course. Somehow I crossed the line in 3hrs 44 minutes! 🤷🏼‍♀️🦶🏻

A MOASSIVE thank you to everyone who shouted my name out there on the streets 📣 (including all of the people who said ‘OhMyGawsh - that woman’s doing it in bare feet!’).

The atmosphere was just insane! 💫 I was running on pure positivity for most of those miles. 🙏🏻💕 Special thanks also to the lady singing Tina Turner at Mile 4 🎤, the Drag Queen 👸🏽 at mile 11 who told me I was ‘fabulous’ and the many many steel drum bands. 🥁 🎶

Apparently I got a mention on the BBC as well?! So big - thanks to the Beeb too. 📺 🍻

I can confirm that Sadiq has his affairs in order, and that the streets of London are well maintained. 👌🏻 I especially enjoyed the large smooth white lines around the bus lanes. 🚌 Swit sawoo! Things got a little sticky under foot after the gel stations but other than that... my feet are fine! Sore, but fine. Horraay to the grimey feet 🙌🏻

If today showed me anything - being out there with thousands of others - it’s that you’ve got no idea what the Dickens you’re capable of until you try. Which is why I am a proud Girlguiding ambassador. They help young women explore just that, and they need the help of amazing volunteers to make it happen.

I was collected by the Mothership at the finish line 🏁 and am typing this in the bath. It’s celebratory curry for tea and you best believe that I’m avin’ that Peshwari Naan. Gerrr in ma belly.

Here’s to many barefoot marathons this year... #BarefootBritain 🦶🏻🏃🏼‍♀️🇬🇧

Hello wonderful people of Twitter,

Does anyone know a kind soul up in Unst or Yell (north of the Shetland Islands) who might be up for hosting me for the first few days of #BarefootBritain?

I’m sorted for most of Shetland but am struggling in the north. Massive thank yous!
