“We do need to give ourselves credit for the sacrifices we made along the way…”

This entertaining piece is a conversation about blood pressure, swimming, extreme physiology and the joy of exercise. You will hear Desiree Chappell and Monty Mythen chatting with Nuala Moore, an Irish swimmer known for open water swimming and ice swimming. She was the 2011 winner of the Margaret Smith Award of the Irish Long Distance Swimming Association, given for increasing the profile of open water swimming; in 2006, she was one of six swimmers to swim around the coast of Ireland in a relay, the first-ever swim of over 1300 km around the coast. Then in 2008 she did a double relay crossing of the English Channel.

Her book “Limitless: From Dingle to Cape Horn, finding my true north in the earth’s vastest oceans” is available to buy in Dingle, or on Amazon:
