British adventurer Sarah Outen overcame personal demons to return to the water and complete a trans-Pacific journey this summer. Outen completed a 150-day journey rowing solo from Japan to Alaska, arriving on Monday, September 23.

The voyage was the latest stage of her 20,000-mile trek around the globe called “London2London” using only her body power. Since departing London April 1, 2011, the 28-year-old has travelled some 11,000 miles through Europe, Central Asia, China, Russia and Japan.

However, the expedition was almost washed away in 2012, when her first effort to cross the North Pacific was halted by Tropical Storm Mawar, forcing her to return to London for nine months of training and regrouping. Report by Mark Morris.
