This week we meet Alex Heminsley, or “Hemmo” – in many ways, the female George Plimpton. She’s an author, reviewer, wit, runner, swimmer, broadcaster, and champion of women in sports.
Alex is incredibly inspiring; she chases down goals with more tenacity and creativity than anyone else I’ve ever met. You may have seen her best-selling book Running Like A Girl, the funny, informative and true story of how she came to run five marathons from a standing start.
Alex embodies the value of setting ambitious targets and going after them with all your energy and a great attitude. We discuss a life of challenges, sportiness, glamour, creativity and humour in this entertaining chat.
