This episode of 'The Well Teacher Podcast' is pure escapism, a chance to take forty five minutes away from the walls that might be closing in on us, to step away from the endless news stories and to have a furtive espace from family members!

Instead, I am really excited to take you on Jennifer Bradley’s journey. The only British woman to have ever run across America on foot, she covered over 3000 miles, an amazing 43 miles a day over 80 days without a rest day.

You know you are about the meet a very determined individual, when this Theodore Rossevelt quotation begins the about section of her fascinating blog:

“Nothing in the world is worth having or worth doing unless it means effort, pain, difficulty… I have never in my life envied a human being who led an easy life. I have envied a great many people who led difficult lives and led them well.”


In this episode we discuss how in eighteen months she went from jogging a couple of times a week, to running double marathons every weekend. We talk about movitation, perseverance, and what Jennifer has applied to her work as a Civil Servent as a result of completing these increadible challenges.

I hope you enjoy the episode, and find it motivates you as much as it did for me.

Thank you for listening.
