This talk, based on Jennifer’s most recent book, is an empowering examination of the mindset and action steps that lead to long-term success. She unveils the secrets of accomplished record setters, defines the building blocks of endurance, then uses them to lay a foundation for every individual in the audience to go farther and do more than they previously thought possible.
One Step at a Time: The Long Path of Health and Wellness The first steps to improving your emotional wellbeing and realizing your fitness goals aren’t always easy- or pretty. But you can’t attain the results you want without first defining your desired outcome, striking out on the journey, and staying committed. Jennifer shares her compelling journey from novice backpacker to record breakin...
Jennifer was the first woman to set the overall record on the Appalachian Trail, but she could not have averaged 47 miles per day without a support crew comprised of hikers, trail runners, and her husband. She compares on-trail lessons in teamwork to her experiences as a business manager, mother, and entrepreneur.
Jennifer relays stories of transitions on and off the trail, emphasizing adaptability and linking it to forward motion and success. By providing examples of change that are almost always uncomfortable (and often humorous), Jennifer gives the listener tools not only to survive transitions but to turn them into opportunities for positive transformation.
