Sally Orange is an endurance runner, adventurer & mental health campaigner.
She is the only person on the planet to complete a marathon on every continent in fancy dress (as different pieces of fruit!), which gives you a flavour of her colourful personality.
She holds multiple Guinness world records and world firsts, has run over 50 marathons, completed 8 full Ironman triathlons and has completed 22 years’ exemplary service in the Royal Army Medical Corps as a Physiotherapy Officer. This included an operational tour of duty in Afghanistan.
Having faced her own challenges with severe depression and chronic anxiety, Sally speaks openly in an attempt to remove the associated stigma. She encourages others to manage their own mental well being through healthy eating, physical activity and a positive mindset.
TW: In this episode the topics of mental health and suicide are spoken about. If you are having a difficult time you can find support here.
