That moment is never forgotten. Chasing the finish line, step by step until it arrives in front of you in all the glory you imagined it, and then some more! • I went out with a job to do - to run with a smile and adventure through 13.1 with grit and in hindsight I am proud to say I ticked that box. I’m a runner who does not fare well with the attitude and pressure of “racing” so my mantra of just popping out for a run and seeing what happens suits my personality just fine. But do not mistake that for me not wanting to be rapid, or not wanting to compete with my peers. Having to dig deep and run into my unknown is not rare in my running. Internalising and listening to my body is not rare. Understanding where I am at with every step is not rare in my running. • I run for me. And the runner in me is beaming with pride. So throw your hands in the air with me, cross a finish line and be proud of what you can do!!

What a morning, what a Brooklyn Half!! • It was an absolute dream to complete my first race in my new home city today. • Running with, and getting love screamed at me from, faces I know and adore meant a whole lot. This city has a running culture like nothing I’ve known and I’m very honoured to be part of it. • I made my mark on the NY roads with a PR of 1:17:10 meaning I finished top 10 women with a huge smile on my face. Thanks NYC. 📸 @notafraid2fail

Running - wherever you do it...DO IT!! • I absolutely love running outside as it’s my freedom, it allows me to have my own time but I equally love running indoors as it’s a challenge to my mind, my patience and my form. I find neither a more superior form of training, you just have to do both right and understand how both methods work for you. • Throughout all of my recent races I have used both indoor and outdoor training to improve my running - I adore speed sessions on the Tread as I can see and hold my paces firm while I train my mind to beat any negativity about those numbers showing in front of me. I run long outside and recover outside, and on those days I have a double session it’s always split between inside and out. • Runners run. How you do it is your choice. As long as you do it, do it smart and do it with a smile you’ll gather results along your way. Find you vibe and run with it.

Eyes on the prize. Arms and legs driving together. Everything working as one fluid strong machine. Mind focused. I will keep flying. • How do you motivate yourself when you run? What words flow through your mind to help you keep putting one foot in front of the other. Whatever you hear make sure it makes you smile because that’s how your wings spread wide and you fly. • Work hard. Believe you can. You will.

How do you start your day? ⁣ I full on hope it’s with this kind of attitude. That air pump style of “heck YES” I am going to have a great day because I am in control of its outcome with my vibe. You get back what you give out and I’m a big believer in waking up - even after a crappy nights sleep - and zoning into positivity by recalling a moment that makes me feel like I did in this picture. At this point of @thespeedproject we had just crested the final hard climb on our route and we were absolutely flying downhill. Chris captured exactly how much this meant to me, with tears of joy streaming down my cheeks I mentally logged the feeling of sheer relief combined with a deep sense of pride and if I could’ve recorded the noise I made with this air pump I’d play it back so very often. ⁣A lot of my self-motivating moments come from running but the principles of I can do this because I believe in myself should be applied to everything in life and for me it is. ⁣ So I ask you when you wake up take a moment and inhale a deep breath, access a memory that makes you full of pride and joy, then embrace your day with a smile on your face, eyes sparkling with life and that “heck yes” attitude flowing through your veins!

Checking the road ahead - are you a planner or a free styler? • Personally I tend to presume I fall into the free style category but on closer inspection I recently feel like I’m edging into becoming more of a planner. Now don’t get me wrong spontaneity is a beautiful part of life but let’s narrow our focus and be clear: I prefer a planned run!! • I have many races under my belt that I went into blind; especially trail races where I wouldn’t attend the pre race briefing meeting as I figured I like the element of surprise out there - hell I knew it wasn’t going to be easy to climb over 80,000 vertical steps throughout @sciacchetrail or traverse up and over the tallest volcano on La Palma at @transvulcania so why did I need to stoke my nerves with numbers. • But here I sit and admit when it comes to a road race like @bostonmarathon you need to know the course to know how to apply your running. I had trained in distance endurance, I had trained for heartbreaking hills, I knew my paces but without knowing when and where I could put these methods into practise I think I would’ve come away with a very different story to tell. It’s not a shoe in for a good race but it’s certainly another way you can assist yourself in the preparation to succeed. • So take a moment before your next run to identify the purpose, pinpoint a goal you want to achieve and mentally map it out. Write it below if you want me to hold you accountable and let’s see if a teeny bit more planning and focus in our running can help us finish each session with an ounce more pride and maybe even a jot more energy! Disclaimer: not every plan works out but finding a way to push on with a last minute plan B is bloody awesome too!!

Happy Earth Day 🌍 Grab today as your chance to make a conscious decision about how you treat and view our beautiful planet. It is so easy to not consider that our actions would affect the lifespan of the planet as we are just one tiny person right? But wrong we all can make a change. • I feel so lucky to be able to travel the world and run in some of the most stunning places, witnessing vistas that take my breath away with every step. Each time I run in places like this I am reminded that we as humans need to show a little more appreciation and understanding for the world we want to thrive alongside. So next time you’re on a run spend a moment to breathe in Mother Earth and find your Earth Day everyday resolution ✌🏼🌍

This is me, pure me. Happy and elated with my own self. No filter needed because I do not care what I look like when I feel this proud. • I went into Boston Marathon with an open mind and a somewhat strong body, bearing in mind Hong Kong marathon was 2 months ago, and @thespeedproject was a mere 2 weeks ago! I don’t tend to announce a pointed goal for my races, I’m always thrilled to be able to start and do all I can to finish strong. • Boston Strong shone through me. Everyone said run the first 16 miles strong, embrace 5 miles of rough hills until 21 then I knew I could spread my wings and fly. I’ve never been more energised by support as I turned on Boylston I had no idea I was going to get a PR as I’d stopped for the dreaded runners stomach issues and lost track of time. But something inside me bubbled; call it power call it strength call it insanity, but it made me drive harder and faster than I could have dreamt. • Finishing @bostonmarathon with a PR means a huge amount to me and I am allowing myself to emit this pride and soar on a sense of achievement over and appreciation for this crazy thing I do called running.

123rd Boston Marathon what a ride! 2:49:39 a very unexpected 2 min PR. • From torrential rain at the start to glorious sunshine welcoming me over the line, every step was unlike any marathon I’ve run before. • It’s going to take some time for that 26.2 to settle in. I ran totally within myself for the most part until the unknown came into sight and I was able to go there, fearlessly driving my arms and legs towards that finish line, tingling with adrenaline and sheer fatigue. Encouraged by so many friends all the way - you guys made me feel like I was flying. • No one ever said running a Marathon was pretty but the experience is pretty darn rad. Thank you Boston for making that adventure one of the most memorable in my life. 📸 @zhetrick

Mental preparation is as much part of the sport of running as the physical training. The start line of @bostonmarathon is rapidly approaching and it’s time for me to sit back and let the good times roll. • Physiologically there’s nothing I can do to change my predicted performance on race day. I know I can do the distance, in body and mind, I just have to trust the roulette wheel of running a marathon favours me on Monday - even if the weather is looking positively diabolical! Literally everything other than getting myself dressed on Monday is out of my direct control yet with a calm mind I commit to understanding I will run into my unknown, I will feel joy and frustration, grit my teeth, breathe through the bad and strive towards that finish line with every single step. • I’m a mixture of nerves - because I care - and pride - because I’m honoured to follow in the footsteps of every runner who has journeyed from Hopkinton to Boylston before me in this legendary @wmmajors marathon. My running accomplishments earned me a qualifying spot and I am going to enjoy every step of what could be the most prominent marathon I’ve ever run. • No expectations. No goals. I’m just going to run. Let’s do this!

The long road ahead. Through twists and turns, flat rides and hills, sun or snow, night or day, we fearlessly follow our feet, following our heart, most often ignoring the voices in our head. • So many levels of self internalisation happen when I run. From an easy cruising run to the toughest moment in any race I have to listen to my body and quite often let it overpower my mind. • When doubt and fatigue combine, when my focus suddenly lands on my trainers I become the strongest version of myself. Consciously breathing in deeply, realigning a powerful running posture, driving my arms harder while I exhale the negative vibes. • I know I can do it. I believe in my body. I trust my mind to silence itself and settle into my body’s rhythm. One step at a time. Peace. Focus on the long road ahead. Smile. This is me. This is why I run.

We piled into Blues 4x4, foot to the floor. Seeing the lonely RV ahead brought sanity-just what I needed to revive my body & mind to support my teammates with a solid 4 hour shift. I can’t explain the goosebumps when we saw Rossi appear;silent glances told me everything. Carissa and I hugged, cried. I was empowered to go and run giving everything. It was dark, cold, silent. We didn’t know what the road ahead looked like. We didn’t know how truly wrecked our teammates were from their heroic slog.We ran on. Leg after leg. Chasing sunrise for the final time, hoping to reappear on the TSP map in the lead shocking everyone with our tactics.The trail continued. A massive unchained Doberman shot out of a quiet yard, the car sped up and blocked it. A winding hell of a hill that Bromka said “might carry on for a couple more miles” sank my heart, my legs throbbed until we crested it and flew into a glorious downhill speed fest. I was reinvigorated with fast leg turnover, flying past RV seeing Chris, camera poised snapping away smiling at me as though we had won! I fist pumped the air as I passed at 5:14 pace. We continued to handoff, loving every step knowing we were so close to combining our trios to be the powerful group of 6 doing all we could to get to Vegas first! • Every leg of the final 2 hours we competed with one another,running some of our fastest splits with the crew! 10 miles to go,we heard Adidas were 30 miles behind. Emotions were high. Then the Welcome to Las Vegas sign appears. It seemed like the past 31 hours hadn’t happened. Tears. I have so much attachment to TSP 3, too much to go into now but those close to me know that getting to the finish line with a new TSP record, was a feat I wasn’t sure I would ever do. It closed a chapter. • This adventure was insane. Our whole BRS team gave their all. We were rebels with a cause. We shook things up. We just had to keep running, keep believing in each other, fulfilling the burning desire in our hearts to run as one even when we felt so alone. • My gratitude for the team is inexplicable. We respect for every team is off the chain. We all are TSP, together and I thank you all for an unforgettable ride ✌

Chris was about to take our van off ahead so we could stop driving over back jarring terrain and try to sleep, we over took Bromka and the other 3 for a few minutes until the walkie crackles...they’re stuck, we need to jump back into rotation to help Carissa. Jason goes into the night, Watson’s excruciating plantar fasciitis means we have to rest him so I jump in next. • Omar appears, yes!! We hand off and he disappears into the thick desert darkness, we watch him go, fearless for now. We go to jump into our vans to continue on but we can’t. All 3 vans are stuck fast, we can’t see a way out. No one moves. We stare in disbelief. Omar has gone, each step taking him farther into the night alone with no idea where he should be going. • After what felt like eternity headlights find us, @blue_benadum scoops up Carissa and Rossi, they speed off scaling a gnarly hairpin soft sand incline which petrifies us to watch the rear of Blues 4x4 kick out. He just made it. • Will they find Omar? How the f*”k are we getting out of here to catch them up and keep running? No phone signal. Help. Bromka said the team had a heavy amount of tough running ahead; we were going nowhere. Anxiety built, fear kicked in then disappointment hit. We were doing so well but we took a risk - could I be happy with that being it for us. • The desert is a cold place at night, nothing appears as it really is. I had to take myself away from the group to be alone in my own thoughts. I felt broken. My heart was breaking with every passing second sitting there doing nothing knowing the other 3 were bowling on, blindly hoping we would be reunited ASAP. Hours passed. My body was frozen. It felt like hell. Everything we tried failed - the vans couldn’t get through the soft sand, let alone scale the steep edges of the sandbowl. Hiding my tears, I closed my eyes to try to rest. • Headlights. Has @adidasrunners caught us? Nope. Blue was back to get us out. In the words of Rossi - LETS F*CKING GO! • To be finished tomorrow ✌

If we are on the same team and you’re pretty sure you’re done, you don’t just accept it. You fight. You dig deeper. You never just give up. • We couldn’t script what happened to us during @thespeedproject and you probably think we are all exaggerating with each post but no. At 4am last Friday morning I toed the start line representing Blue Ribbon Sports at Santa Monica Pier sick to my stomach with nerves of being the first runner and at what lay ahead. The tension was palpable, 44 groups from around the world all about to embark on a mad run to Vegas through the desert. No rules. Just get there as fast as you can. • I set out fast, maybe too fast. Knees up driving my arms hard, rolling over the ground with adrenaline surging, sucking in the damp cold morning air, starting a hectic cough that would affectionately become known as “desert lung”. Boom 2k at 5:57/mile handed off to Jason and I breathed a - crackly - sigh of relief. • The next 17 hours passed by in TSP magic, a blur of hand offs with my teammates, warm California sun, smashing out countless very fast splits, @drwadetherapy working his magic to keep our bodies nimble as we tried to rest and stay fueled and hydrated even when I couldn’t bear ingesting anything. • We turned off the trodden route onto a maintenance road that could save us miles. Convinced @adidasrunners were hot on our tail we all committed and went in. Pitch black without a headlamp or the van lights. Undulating rocky sandy terrain, a slight uncertainty that we were even on the right path. Every hand off was a victory as much as it was every time the vans kept moving along the track...until they didn’t. Sean Jason and I had just finished our 3 hour stint and Carissa Omar and Rossi were up. More tomorrow ✌🏼
