The Roman philosopher Seneca once said, ‘the body should be treated rigorously, that it may not be disobedient to the mind’ and that really resonates with me. I aim to be the best version of myself, physically and mentally, and challenging myself to persevere, to push through the pain and to focus on what’s happening is a fantastic way of getting in touch with the real me. I know now that the mind will want to quit long before the body does and that gives me strength. I aim to summit Everest before I’m 50, and I know I have the will to do it.
