Description

"Only those who are not afraid to push, will ever see how far they can go"

In 2004 Annabelle Bond became the fourth British woman ever to ascend Mount Everest.  She then went on to scale the ‘Seven Summits’ -  the highest peaks on each continent,  in just 360 days, making her the fastest female climber in the world. 

In her first ever podcast interview she tells me what it’s like to stand on top of the world on all seven continents. Incredibly, just weeks before tackling Mount Everest, a doctor’s visit revealed that she had a tumour, something of a cruel irony, given that she was already deeply involved in raising funds for The Eve Appeal Cancer Foundation. She went under the knife to have it removed and after summiting Everest against the odds, the next six mountains succumbed to her will one by one.

Our first turn down memory lane starts with her recounting her childhood, the exotic sights and sounds of Asia in the 70s, before we discuss the influence of her esteemed father Sir John Bond. We then dive into what it takes to climb Mount Everest, we talk about near brushes with death, the importance of setting goals, of healthy competition, life as a single mum, and some final words to live by.
