If you haven’t heard of Margo Talbot, you should. World renowned ice climber, mental wellness coach, public speaker, writer, mentor, role-model- the list goes on. Margo is a woman of many incredible talents.
I ran across her book, All That Glitters, a few years ago, and I loved it. She shares an in-depth look into her journey of healing through ice-climbing, along with many other rad and adventerous stories. The book is gripping.
I then heard her speak later on at the Banff Film Festival. Her openness, honesty, and transparency really spoke to me. One of her stories has stuck with me; I carry it with me when I doubt myself in the outdoors.
About a month ago I meekly approached Margo in the climbing gym asking for her support in my athletic pursuits. I’m a complete stranger. Margo didn’t even hesitate and gladly jumped at the opportunity to help out another female pursuing mountain athletics.
