This week we've got a really inspiring interview for you. Helen was lucky enough to catch up with ultra runner Ollie Stoten in Chile after he and his Spear 17 teammates completed an unsupported skiing expedition across the Antarctic land mass. More people have walked on the moon than have completed such an epic journey, unsupported. What's even more impressive about Ollie and his teammates is that they are Army Reservists and two years ago they had almost zero experience of Polar Journeys or Cold Weather environments. You can take a lot from Ollie's interview with regards to mental strength and physical endurance. He also tells us how he coped in temperatures which reached -57c, what they ate and how you go about your business when it's that cold.
