Monday Morning Motivation: Jasmin Paris

Jasmin Paris fell running.

I already had a Monday Morning Motivation post planned, but after Jasmin Paris’s amazing performance last week, I knew that I had to dedicate this week to her.

On Wednesday, Paris won the Montane Spine race, a gruelling ultra covering 268 miles across the Pennines. Whilst completing a race of that distance is an amazing feat for anyone, there are several facts that make this even more amazing:

  • Jasmin was the outright winner, beating other experienced runners of both sexes
  • She broke the course record by more than 12 hours
  • She is a nursing mother who expressed milk along the way

If that doesn’t inspire you to get out there this week, I don’t know what will!
