Round Raro 31km race, I joined Annie and the #farmstrong ladies for their final 12 in 12 event. perfect conditions with a light drizzle, and both our groups picked up a mascot dog that followed us the whole run.
In July I did my first ultra marathon and it’s taken quite a while to process.
It was something I signed up to coming out of May’s half Ironman, to keep me distracted and training when Dad was sick. Race day was a month after he passed away and it was incredibly hard to get through it mentally. I met an angel 10kms in and we “ran” for the next 43km together. Tricia - thank you for being amazing. .
Thank you to @kaitiebarker@one_more_tri and @kmon87 for being there at the end with smiles and encouragement to get across that finish line! Thank you for all the encouragement during training. #girlganggoals 🦄
Thank you to my Wednesday run crew for tricking me into signing up 😂 and for all the chats during our lunchtime runs @hollz6e87 and @the_fearless_athlete .
And the biggest thank you to @entropy____ who puts up with my crazy goals, carries my bag home so I can run, feeds me when the hanger sets in and lets me nap on the weekend. ❤️

Who is @universityaverun? "I stretch lightly before each run and try not to start off too fast. I think subconsciously I also ensure that I have the proper motivation to run. The runs where I lose sight of why I'm running end up becoming my halfhearted efforts."
Last night whilst I was running the sunset hit the tops of the trees just right and it looked like autumn was closing in. Today I woke up and it well and truly felt like autumn!
I enjoy running and Bristol has so much beautiful scenery to take in and I find it more motivating. This month I’m even more motivated to run as I’m taking part in #challenge60 for @clicsargent. September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month and I’m running (or walking) 60 miles this month to support this wonderful cause. I used to work for CLIC Sargent so I know how amazing the work is that they do but also my nephew has had leukaemia twice and I know what the family has gone through. He’s doing great now by the way!
It would be great if you could support me in this challenge or even sign up and take part yourself. I can set up a group and we can have a leaderboard if you love a bit of competitiveness too. Just DM me if you want to join the team and I’ll set up a group with weekly leaderboard updates.

Wow, well today was nothing short of epic, I went on a journey and this little running caterpillar became a full blown butterfly! I ran my debut marathon today at the @santarosamarathon and I got to do it with the most badass cheer squad around! I had some of my closest friends and my family on course screaming the loudest out of any other squad out there and my remote cheer squad was nothing short of amazing! Most importantly I wouldn’t have been able to get here without my amazing coach Aaron Jacobsen. I got to the start line feeling prepared and confident and that’s all because of his training. Like with every marathon, there were highs and some lows (stomach issues at mile 24), but I learned a ton and I will remember this day for the rest of my life! I owe a massive thank you to my hubs @juliansunn who did almost every workout with me and put up with all of my whining 😂 And a thank you to my friends and family that have been there day in and day out supporting me through this journey! I love you guys! And like I always say, be thankful for your people, because no one does anything great alone! #debutmarathon#squadgoals#teamworkmakesthedreamwork#neverstopfighting#nevergiveup#keepgrinding#runlove#runinrabbit#rabbitresults#goodr#runadventures#grateful#timetocelebrate#onlybadassespukewhilerunning 🤣🏃🏼♀️🥰💚
So coach, I didn’t get my complete run done today. You see I found a lost dog in need of help and met a bunch of new people. She has no chip but is a total sweet heart. Is she yours? Do you know where she belongs? Do you want her? #run#runadventures#running#runner#lostdogs#newfriends

Moody weather day.
Flying visit to the Wirral to see the folks. I always like to squeeze in a run to West Kirby round the lake & home again. I used to go to school in West Kirby & get the bus there each day. Back then I would’ve thought anyone running there must be bonkers!! #memories#runadventures#runningthoughts

Excited to share our new logo for the EVOSSI Explores Series!
What started as a chat between pals @michaela_d.s@eric_tolentino@ed_evossi on a mountain top in Chamonix, has grown into an idea we’re stoked to share with you 🙌🏼
Mid Sept we’re heading with 23 of you to the stunning Lake District. Get ready for a weekend of epic trail runs, local beer sampling, inspirational talks & good vibes🌿😎
‘Welcome Packs’ will be landing in your inbox Friday morning, keep a lookout 🏃🏼♀️🏃🏻 #EvossiExplore#RunAdventures
Say hello to my little friend! You know how you go running... and on your way home you say hi to a really friendly crawfish getting his morning run in, too? 🤣
Boris and I are friends now.
He went .15 miles today.
He's using the couch to half mile plan.
I saw him stretching afterward.
Come join us tonight for a short run and a 30 minute circuit/strength class led by Nick Weiss from @performancegaines - come sweat with us!😅
30 min run leaves at 6:15pm- circuit starts immediately after.

82.5kg X 1 X 4 + 1
82.5kg X 1 X 3 + 2
82.5kg X 1 X 2 + 3
“I get excited about the places my legs can take me, remote places the rest of the world misses out on. It’s as much a mental battle as a physical one sometimes, and winning either battle on any given day is just so empowering.”
Shoutout to BCR @erinclowder for sharing what running means to her. Happy weekend friends! Go find your adventure...Keep inspiring us all 💙💙
