Moving out of
your comfort zone

with Sarah Curtis

This week I have the absolute pleasure of speaking with Sarah Curtis, founder of Move Your Mind and one of the original 10Ironwomen, 10 inspiring women who undertook the Barcelona Ironman in 2019.

Sarah integrates her active lifestyle to all aspects of her world including her work as a counsellor & psychotherapist. Taking her sessions out of her practice in Shoreditch she is able to offer running or walking sessions to those who feel more comfortable out in nature.

Sport has always been a part of Sarah’s life but she hasn’t always been a lover of running. It was through joining running groups in London that she found a supportive community of runners and motivational women which saw them take on the challenge of running from LA to Vegas and later the unthinkable challenge of an Ironman.

I was really eager to understand the decision process Sarah went through when she agreed to take on these challenges and if she was daunted by the size of the task,
but as she explains the hardest part of these physical or mental challenges is saying yes in the first place. From there she fully commits and goes for it. Pushing yourself physically or mentally really is just one decision away.

Since completing the Ironman Sarah and 10Ironwomen have become a movement with a mission to see a 50/50 gender split at Ironman events, so if you’re even slightly considering it Sarah will get you inspired to take on the challenge.

You can check out the amazing women and follow their ironman training @10ironwomen on Instagram and learn more about Sarah’s inspiring work at and @moveyourminduk.

Don’t overthink it, make a decision and go for it. Ultimately, just go for it and see what happens, if you feel close to sure it’s what you want to do, go for it.
