Are you exploring your limits in the pursuit of something you truly believe in?

My guest Sharon Jessop has not only completed the most consecutive half marathons for a female (102), she has also completed 4 extreme running expeditions since 2017.

Passionate about rhinos, I will interview Sharon as she nears the finish line after a three-month bid to run through 24 rhino bearing game reserves in South Africa to highlight and support rhino conservation.

Sharon is a rhino conservationist, adventurer, expeditioner, conservation community activist, SA tourism advocate and storyteller. Guinness World Record holder and ultra-distance athlete.
