Solo - Jenny Tough - October 2023
Solo chronicles renowned endurance athlete Jenny Tough's adventures running solo and unsupported across the world's most inhospitable mountain ranges.
"Jenny shows us all that the journey to self-belief comes with just as many ups and downs as the mountains she traverses and that, with a little trust in ourselves (and a few good cups of coffee) the next seemingly insurmountable pass is never beyond our reach."
Anna McNuff, adventurer and enthusiast
Beyond her incredible adventures, Solo also shares the more personal story of Jenny's quest to deal with feelings and emotions that were holding her back.
Like runners at any level, she knew already that running made her feel better. Yearning for the empowerment of shaping her own destiny she decided on the audacious goal of running across six continents of mountains, all on her own, starting with one of the most remote locations on Earth in Kyrgystan.
Solo chronicles every step of her journey across the Tien Shaw (Asia), the High Atlas (Africa), the Cordillera Oriental (South America), the Southern Alps (Oceania), the Canadian Rockies (North America) and the Transylvanian Alps (Europe), as Jenny learns lessons in self-esteem, resilience, bravery and so much more.
Invigorating, encouraging, joyful and, above all, a call to find strength, confidence and self-belief in everything we do.
"This book will broaden the horizons of all who venture between its covers. "
