Description


In this episode I chat to Veterinarian, Ultra runner and Adventurer Kirra Balmanno.  We discuss her journey over recent years both professionally and personally.  Kirra relates how the challenges of trying to be and do it all  as Vet and Athlete early in her career led to a spiral of injury,  set backs and burnout. She used these experiences as impetus to drive her ambition, sense of adventure and voyage into the unknown.  This has led her on a life path which she previously could only dream of.   Kirra describes her trail running and endurance feats as a microcosm of life, riding highs and enduring the lows. We discuss how she reconciles Kirra the studious, perfectionist professional with Kirra the spontaneous, adventure seeking explorer.  We cover minimalism, what it means to be happy and the empowerment afforded when we push past physical and mental boundaries.  In a year of adversity, challenge, and many lows Kirra reminds us that resilience and the ability to endure demands that we keep our sense of hope, spirit of adventure and continue to dare to dream big.
