Mountain leader and cancer survivor Jack Williams tells Liv Bolton how getting outside helped him cope with his illness as well as how he’s now shaping an adventurous life for his family in the UK.
My guest in this episode is mountain leader, hiker and trail runner Jack Williams. Jack’s outdoors life has had many different chapters.
But five years ago, he found out he had testicular cancer. Going through that experience led to changes in his relationship with the outdoors and adventure goals.
He’s now a qualified mountain leader, leading groups and courses in Snowdonia and he’s also focused on family, creating outdoor adventures with his two young sons.
I met up for a beautiful walk with Jack in Llangollen in North Wales, where he now lives. I was keen to hear all about his outdoors story but particularly how getting outside helped him cope with his illness as well as how he’s now shaping an adventurous life for his family in the UK.
I hope you enjoy the podcast and that it helps motivate you to get outdoors and feel great!
