In Episode 58 we speak with Alice Henley, a woman of South Florida who thrives on land and ocean endurance challenges. Alice shares her stories of finding her passion for prone paddling, her evolution as a competitive racer, and her mind-set to pull through the heavy mental challenges endurance sports present. Alice takes us through being seasick in the 2017 M2O race, and the incredible story of her 2018 M2O solo crossing where almost everything went wrong -- except her will to finish (this may be the gnarliest M2O story I've heard so far...). We hear of the marine rescue scene in South Florida, Alice's well-rounded cross-training regimen, and Alice's major focus on Crossing For A Cure where she plans to paddle 80 miles from Bimini, Bahamas back to Florida to raise money for Cystic Fibrosis in June, 2019 (link to donate is below!!!)

Thanks for sharing Alice's ocean life with us. You can find pictures and video of her on Instagram , Facebook, and support her Crossing For A Cure paddle by donating on her fundraising website. You can also find good stuff on the ThisOceanLife.TV Instagram and Facebook pages. We are on Twitter ranting about anything cool happening in the ocean.
