In the first of two anniversary episodes of the Her Spirit podcast BBC Breakfast Louise Minchin and BBC Triathlon presenter Annie Emmerson talk to Claire Danson, Deborah James, Stacey Copeland and Maxine Peake.
All four guests talk about there challenges over the last twelve months from Stacey Copeland's retirement from boxing, Maxine Peake's acting industry suffering catastrophic affects, Deborah James battles with bowel cancer and the 3am feeling of loneliness and Claire Danson adapting to a life as a para-triathlete.
It's an episode all about female support, fun and laughter and the power of togetherness. It includes so many great ways to look at life over a challenging year and making sure you have many "positive petrol tanks" around you.
