So, who is G Who Dares?

My name's Georgie and I'm an aspiring adventurer, endurance athlete and blogger. I live and work full time in London but when I'm not at my desk you're pretty much guaranteed to find me involved in some kind of exercise. I have a real passion for adventure and fitness. I love to cycle, run, sail and everything in between. Oh, and I'm a total peanut butter addict.

I'm on a mission to reach the limit of my own potential. I’m curious to see what I can achieve both physically and mentally when taken outside my comfort zone. I want to discover what else is out there, go on adventures, learn new skills and most of all have fun!

This year, I've set myself a challenge, actually I've set myself 12 challenges. One per month for a year, anything from cross country skiing to endurance cycling. All of which both scare and excite me in equal measures. I’d like to share my experiences and adventures with you as I take on, train for and (hopefully!) achieve my goals.

I really hope my blog will help to inspire and motivate you to do the same. I want to help you find something you can throw yourself into and achieve more than you ever dreamed was possible.

Take a leap out of your comfort zone, that’s where the magic happens.
