Step into the life of marathon swimmer and founder of the Port to Pub open water swim event, Ceinwen Roberts.
Ceinwen talks about how swimming was a key part of family life growing up and how, in her first Rottnest channel crossing, she found the spark and challenge that would lead her to becoming only 1 of 83 people worldwide to have swum the Triple Crown of Open Water Swimming. She also talks through her upcoming challenge to swim a 4-way crossing of the Rottnest Channel in March/April of this year that will see her swim for over 24 hours.
We then go into the story of behind the beginnings of the Port to Pub event that crosses the Rottnest Channel and the scale of involvement to manage such and event.
Ceinwen is a very grounded lady that gives off a magnetic 100% authentic energy - she is very clear that despite her achievements, she doesn’t she herself as anything special, just someone who is willing to open up to possibility and explore just what she is capable of doing. She talks openly about the challenges of balancing her full life that includes a family of two little girls and how swimming, and the ocean, is also a key tool for her to maintain solid mental health and stability among it all.
For the listener, you will be given a very clear example of the scale of what can be achieved if you actively choose positivity and gratitude as the basis to approach everything that life presents.
