Heather you are an amazing woman – for your endurance, setting such thrilling goals and having perseverance to achieve then. I have great admiration for inner and outer strength…and your honesty in the presentation. You were very honest about your feelings which is what I think will distinguish your talk from others. The message you give is wise and important and one thing those of us who choose not to climb mountains can share.

Glenn and Heather you presented to our conference what I would term the ultimate in fearlessness and certainly instilled in us to forget that often used saying, ‘I can’t’. I think everyone will remember the hour we had with you on that Sunday morning for a long, long time and all the much better for it.
Glenn & Heather your presentation was fantastic. It has drastically changed the way I look at things. I have changed my lifestyle quite a bit. Thanks to you guys I now exercise 4 times a week and...after 2 weeks of thinking over and over that incredible achievement, I would be ready to train and go for it.
