For the next few weeks, we'll be coming to you with conversations I had at one of my favorite cafes, Farm Girl in South Kensington, London.
This week's guest is Vicki Anstey, an almost overwhelmingly inspiring woman. Vicki is a world record holder, adventurer, award-winning entrepreneur, speaker, coach, and athlete. After 20 years in a relationship that limited and stifled her and a successful career as an advertising professional, Vicki became a fitness pioneer and later one of the first ever women to participate (at age 41) in Channel 4’s SAS Who Dares Wins, reaching the final stages after 11 days in extreme conditions at an altitude of 3,000ft in Chile.
In 2021, exactly a year before this episode was published, she and 2 other women, the Girls Who Dare, set a new World Record for rowing unaided across the Pacific Ocean, confronting her fear of deep, open water to do so. It took 60 days, 17 hours and 6 minutes. Her latest endeavor was a 5 day race in the Arctic, covering a distance of over 230km in temperatures of -35 degrees, carrying everything she needed to survive In 2023, she plans to participate in the World’s Toughest Bike Race, the Race Across America (RAAM), covering 3,000 miles across 17 states in just 7 days.
