This week on the Outside & Active Podcast, Dom is joined by ultra runner and influencer, Charlotte Clarke. Learn how Charlotte overcame 2 heart surgeries to arrive where she is today, encouraging people to get active and challenging herself in the ultra running world.
Charlotte is an ultra marathon runner. Her aim is simple, to encourage others to get active no matter what obstacles they have had to overcome. For Charlotte, this was two heart operations, but this has not stopped her going on to show what the human body really can do.
As an ex professional dancer and personal trainer she has always found the joy in movement and is an advocate for others finding this joy in movement however that may look for them.
In this first episode of Season 6, Charlotte talks through her 2 heart surgeries, her battles with mental health, the foundations of her love of ultra running, and offers her advice on how to stay safe when running. This was a fantastic conversation with someone who used to be an old colleague, and then one day I walk into my current office and see Charlotte on the front cover of Women's Running magazine. At that point I knew I had to get her onto the podcast!
