A Utah mom of seven is one step closer to becoming the first woman to climb the second-highest mountains on each continent called the “Seven Second Summits.” KSL reports since February, Jenn Drummond has completed hikes in South America and Africa. Now she’s gearing up to summit Mt. Dykh-Tau in Russia. With seven little ones at home, Drummond said the key to training for a feat like this is time management.
“If they have a soccer practice, I might be the mom on the sidelines doing squats, things like that, so I can watch them and be getting a training session done.”
Her ultimate goal is to show her kids that anything is possible:
“Having them watch me make sacrifices and be committed to a goal and making decisions around that goal, allows them to see what’s involved in chasing goals and how that really works. For me, I’m a better version of me when I have goals that I’m going after too.”
