Eva and Olga are thrilled to introduce this week’s guest, Sophie Radcliffe, to our Big Dreamers. Sophie is an endurance athlete, adventurer and blogger. She has run, swam, cycled and climbed her way around the world. Her challenges have grown each time to reach higher or further than before. She is the only person in history to have climbed the highest mountains in the eight Alpine countries and cycled between them, climbing five times the height of Mount Everest in 32 days. She is also a two-time Ironman finisher.  Not too shabby!

Sophie’s philosophy in life is “One Life, Live It” and her life decisions truly embody that way of thinking.  We hope that you enjoy listening to this interview as much as we loved chatting with her.
