Inaugural Skeeter Skoot 50k. My only goal was to finish without my IT Band regressing too much. I straight ran the first half or so. Once my knee started to protest, I ran 3/1 intervals. If I felt ok if go longer, if not, I didn't. The portion on the highway was a welcome relief. Oddly enough I feel better after this run than I did after the Space Coast Marathon two weeks ago. 🤷 The weather was perfect for me. Overcast and breezy. Course was well marked and the volunteers working the aid stations were the nicest ever!! A great day to finish my first 50k. 🙌🙌 Now if you'll excuse me... I have a magnet to buy!! 😁 #myfirstultra #plantpowered #plantfueled  #skeeterskoot #yesichangedmyinsta #hokaoneone #youdontknowunlessyoutry  #nothingventured #50k #irunthisbody #womenrunning #southfloridarunners #ihavearunnersbody
Let's discuss hills!!! I definitely have had my fair share of hills this year and when i heard its a hill, i thought SHIT!  I thought of Box Hill, Leith hill, even Everest Base camp!!! Pros- the hill is NOT any of the above or as hilly as Windsor, Canterbury or the beastly Benfleet! Phew!  Cons- I only did 14 miles & the thought of doing 25 LAPS of a hill sounds like torture. Argh! The routes not pretty butttt I'm praying it will have lots of supporters to get me through!  One week to go!!!!!

When Phill coached me for London marathon and Asad coached me for Prudential 100, they both told me:  1. Do a recce of the course, if possible  2. Train in what you'll be wearing on the day at least once.  Today I did 23km / 14.2 miles of next weeks course!  I ran the last 6 miles of the marathon course a week before, I went to Surrey to practise Box hill & Leith hill and I watched london tri the day before my race! Recces really calm the nerves for me!!! #challenge31 #ultra #myfirstultra #ultramarathon #training #marathontraining #30for30 #30fitnesschallenges #runnersofinstagram #runners #jecks30for30 #trainingmode #fitnessjourney #runningjourney #thisgirlcan  #instarunners #ukrunning  #eastendroadrunners #runningcommunity #ukrunchat #thisgirlcanuk #womenthatrun #londonrunners
Congratulations to @Floruns on his first #ultramarathon! Finishing 6th overall in 7h42min at @UTCT sporting X-BIONIC's #twyce. "It was the biggest running challenge I had ever faced. Much to my dismay - the closer the finish line got, the more I had to remind myself to bring it home.." the #xpert adds, dazzled by the results of his debut.  Check out his blog and race analysis through bio!  Many thanks to @sportograf for capturing this heartfelt moment.  #utct #myfirstultra #discover #trailrunning

Tidig morgon på Gran Canaria, denna fantastiska ö! Vilken vecka det har varit.  Runstreaken består ännu, vilket känns bra. Det blev en kort runda i Vasastan nu på kvällen, frös bara om händerna. Från 27 till 4 grader, en viss skillnad.  Nu har jag fyllt på D-vitamindepåerna för en tid framöver och kan börja träna inför ATR, dvs samla höjdmeter i skogarna.  Ljuvligt! 🏃‍♀️🌲👊🏻💪🏼 #laufen #jagspringer #fitover40 #tränavarjedag #runrunrun #marathon #myfirstultra #fenix 5 #flipbelt #asfalt #hemmaigen #garminfenix5 #runstreak #maspalomas #grancanaria  #spain #laufen #löpning #spring #running #beachrunning #laspalmasairport  #landvetterairport  #springigbg #nike #playadelingles #sauconyguide #reflexväst
What do you do when you get stuck due to travel restrictions? I run! It was just a short, sweet little three miler but surprisingly everything felt great even though I just had my 50k on Sunday. It truly amazes me how resilient both my legs, mind and heart can be. They continue to allow me to do what I love to do most: Run. #myfirstultra #marathoner #firstultramarathon #runtherapy #runhappy #running #runfree #run #runner #instarunners #ultrarunner #ultratrailrunners #trailrunner #trailrunning #trailrun #ultra #ultraroadtrip #roadtrip #snowrun #mountainview #justrun #brooksrunning #brookswomen
Taken from the EERR Running beast @marctaffy THIS. IS. THE. ULTRA 😱. That looks absolutely awful! I'm so screwed haha  But look at the bling! To end my 30 fitness challenges for 30 plus 1 with that medal would be AMAZING. I've got to earn it first 😭.

Just when you think you’ve seen it all, you get a view like this. My eyes have never seen as much beauty as they have on this trip. It’s safe to say the southwest and pacific southwest have firmly planted a place in my heart.

Now it's official, I'm committed! Signed up for my first ever ultra: the Lost Cat 50k! I'm beyond excited and a little bit petrified. Time to make that dream a reality, and help support a good cause!

Yep I'm still spamming #hurtwood50 pictures 🏃‍♀️ I've never looked so dorky in my life but I've also never been so happy to finish a race!  The only slightly disappointing thing about the race was the pictures - the photographers were obviously following the faster runners up the field. There seemed to be the same people in all the official pictures looking awesome running over rough terrain, at the top of leith hill and even a guy falling over. But for us slower runners we just got a picture at the end, I would've loved to get an awesome action shot but hey! Maybe next time 😊  #ultrachallenge #ultramarathon#myfirstultra #hurtwood50 #runnersofinstagram #running
A day off, a rest day, but a day that falls into the pattern of the #runstreak  so I was out there tooling around. I love having a National Forest in my actual backyard. I was so excited about my matchy-matchiness from earlier that I ran in my outfit. That's a definite plus, especially when it's winter laundry season! I swear I have three times the laundry now as in the summer.  Don't forget, it's #tacotuesday eve - go to your podcast listening platform and subscribe to @tacocitypod so it's cued up for your morning run! #🌮
#medalmonday goes to my all time favourite designed medal at the #hurtwood50!  The toughest race I have ever done, but also the most enjoyable day out! The mud, the hills, the lovely competitors and Marshalls, the food and best of all the feeling of completing my first ultra marathon.  I definitely am struggling to walk right now and my feet are covered in compeed plasters but I had the time of my life! Thank you Freedom racing @tom_freedomracing for such a well organised and enjoyable race and a big well done too all the other amazing competitors!  I am an ultra runner!! 🏃‍♀️ #ultrachallenge #ultramarathon#myfirstultra #hurtwood50 #dorking #freedomracing #ultrachallenge #completeditmate #runnersofinstagram #ultrarunner
My first  ultramarathon medal ..... ————————————————————— I still can’t believe what I have achieved .  5th female home  and I even wasn’t training for that race seriously. .  New experience  and a new recovery experience . My legs are fine  just a bit sore but the problem is that second night I can’t get a proper sleep ... will see how I gonna manage tonight... it looks like I am still in ultra mood 😅😅adrenaline 🤔 . ( a photo back from the ultra at hotel 11 pm 😅😅😅 following double dalmore  whiskey 🥃) . . #medalmonday #medal#ultramedal#foxlakenocturnalultra #nocturnalultra #runner#imoveme#ultrarunner #ukrunchat #myfirstultra
I officially became an ultramarathon runner yesterday when I completed the OTHTC High Desert 50k! I even managed a 3rd place overall female finish! Even though I did well, it was not a picture perfect race and I did struggle. I was in first place until altitude sickness hit, I battled a side stitch the whole race and I tripped and skinned myself up pretty good right before the finish line. I knew going into this everything was a factor as I drove 1,600 miles from flat prairie land to race here in the High Desert. I’ve found the more I challenge myself the more I amaze myself at what I can do. I lost 120lbs since March 2017, I have finished every race in the top 10%, I ran a BQ for my first marathon and placed also and now I took 3rd place overall in my first ultra. Sometimes I look in the mirror and wonder how the hell little old me has accomplished so much. What I do know is that I’m proud of the woman I’ve become and that running has saved my life in so many ways. I am grateful, thankful and blessed! #medalmonday #mondaymotivation #ultramarathon #ultras #ultrarunner #runnersofinstagram #runner #marathoner #firstultramarathon #myfirstultra #podium #podiumfinish #3rdplace #newrunner #lovetorun #runhappy #borntorun #instarunners #running #trailrunner #trailrunning #50krace #othtc50k @hokaoneone #badassmotherrunner #racelikeagirl #runlikeagirl #hokaoneone
I'm wearing so much multi-functional headwear that I no longer appear to have a neck. Also with them stretched over my bun I look like the Predator.  I need a day without wind, I'm pooped.  RSD 32. #streakingwiththecrazykids
Yesterday was brilliant to watch! I do love cheering on runners!  The @whatyoudomatters 2018 running squad have managed to raise £453 so far!! WOW! & now it's my turn as I face my first ultra marathon (50k) in 14 days!!!!!! I am bricking it! Whoever invented ultras must of been mad!! But seeing the runners run in the wind & rain for my company was truly inspiring! . . .  I was scared for London marathon... but I did it. I was scared for the swim at my 1st triathlon.. but I did it. I was scared for Ride 100.. but somehow I did it! I was super nervous for Everest Base Camp but I did it.  I'm doing this ultra for so many reasons, for What You Do Matters & it's future, for people who inspire me & believe in me, for the hard time my family lot & I have been through recently, for myself to end the year knowing I gave the year of 30 absolutely every bit of me.  Massive thank you to yesterday's runners! I hope I run with as much strength, happiness & commitment as you all did.

Officially now I am a  ultramarathoner . My first ultra. ——————————————- Race photos are here from last night’s #foxlakenocturnalultra . .  Just today I start to realise what I have achieved . . .  The pains all over my body are helping me realise how far I actually run - 11 loops 35 miles . . .  #ultrarunner #myfirstultra #ukrunchat #myfirstultramarathon #runoutdoors #runner #run#imoveme#beatyesterday #racephotos#ultranight
Ultra challenge complete! 50k is no easy challenge and I couldn't have done it without this lovely lass next to me every step of the way feeding me chocolate biscuits and putting up with my continuous talking for 8 hours 😂 The biggest challenge came after nightfall, not being able to see the tree route etc slowed us right down. The route was stunning with some incredible views and the organisation (and sign posts!) What a lovely day out with lots of laughs, food and a bit of running in between! 50k distance I have a feeling I'll be seeing you again 😉 #ultrachallenge #ultramarathon#myfirstultra #hurtwood50 #ididit
I haven't been feeling well since last night and I know it's exhaustion. I tried drinking water- no luck.I ate, no luck, I napped, no luck. By 3pm, I forced myself to go for a run with no pressure of how long I should run for.  #challenge31 #ultra #myfirstultra #ultramarathon #training #marathontraining #30for30 #30fitnesschallenges #runnersofinstagram #runners #jecks30for30 #trainingmode #fitnessjourney #runningjourney #thisgirlcan  #instarunners #ukrunning  #eastendroadrunners #runningcommunity #ukrunchat #thisgirlcanuk #womenthatrun #londonrunners
Excuse me looking like a hot mess, but I barely made it in town on time for my expo! I picked up my packet last night, got a very short shakeout run with strides, devoured some food and rested up. After taking two consecutive rest days since I started to lose weight in March 2017 - due to weather, traveling across country and time constraints - I’m a tad nervous today. But....The day of my first ultra is finally here! No matter what happens today, I just want to have fun! Good luck to all my fellow racers out there! I’ll be cheering you on from the trails! #myfirstultra #faceyourfears #marathoner #firstultramarathon #runtherapy #ultras #ultra #50ktraining #50krace #othtc50k #highdesert #highdesert50k #raceday #packetpickup #runner #instarunners #trailrunner #trailrunning #trailrunninglife #lovetorun #borntorun #runhappy #runfree
If you think I look like I am in shock before the race started......You should have seen how shocked I was at the end when I found out I finished in 5th place in my first Ultra!!! . Totally unexpected result given the conditions and the amount of experienced Ultra runners that were taking part.... . Fantastic event even though the weather could have been better but I guess it is December in Scotland........lots of mud, lots of fun and lots of surprises!!!! Running through a barn in the middle of nowhere that was blasting music was a bit out of the blue..... . . Overall a well organised,well marshalled and well planned event. A must do event for anyone interested in doing an ultra.......have to admit it though! Today I’m broken!!! . . It was great to meet you there guys @little.runner.mel and @gergelybajzath and @tracyann_aiton . Well done guys! . . #truesapien #betrusapien #imoveme#ultrarunner #ukrunchat #myfirstultra #myfirstultramarathon #beatyesterday #runrunrun #happy#proudofmyself #iampuregymmotivated #nocturnalultra #foxlakeadventures #foxlakenocturnalultra#fitover40 #runrunrun#iampuregymmotivated
What a ride! First of all, what made the day was the awesome support from @megs.grimsley @chelsea_cello  and my mom. Such a gift to see their faces at many of the accessible aid stations.  This was the challenge I was hoping for and by god it didn’t disappoint. 2,887 ft elevation gained, serious rain, even more serious mud, 4 solid falls 🤷🏻‍♂️. SOMEHOW finished 18th overall and 4th in my age group. My body needs a break after 22 weeks of training, 1 x  marathon, and 1 x 50k, this kid is ready for some sleep.  #ultrarunning #myfirstultra #kingofthemountajn #rain #mud #kingsmountainstatepark #southcarolina #run #hillsonhills #taps #50k #trailrun #myfeethurt #nippleguardsareclutch #newfriends #trailbuddies #toiletpaperforthewin #fell4times #sixhours #saltykisses #gu #powerblocks #timeforsleep #porkbellytacos
Primul ultra - 50 km! Ultimă cursa din acest an și probabil cea mai spectaculoasă ! Lucrurile arătau destul de "ciudat " la start, temperatura de -10 grade , apa cu iso înghețate in rucsac. O diferență de nivel de 1500 care s-au simțit destul de bine la picioare și organizare foarte buna.  Totul a decurs perfect mai puțin la km 37 când a început o durere la glezna dreapta ( acum s-a făcut vânătă) dar cu puțin strâns din dinți am reușitsa duc la capăt cursa. Fără doar și poate am atins un nou nivel (psihologic) și cu siguranță vor urma alte curse și alte provocări fizice ! What's next ? 100? 💪♥️ Timp final : 6h-45' La multi ani , Romania ! 🇷🇴 #myfirstultra #50km #beyourownheto #bedifferent #makehistory #romania #ecotrail #run #inspiredesireachieve
I snapped this photo upon leaving Colorado. While these ranges pictured are a far cry from what I drove through, I felt I needed to stare down the hardest part of my trip and say I overcame it. Fog, snow, reroutes, losing time, and driving up and down steep icy graded roads...that was I-70! If you have to ask me why I chose to drive across country for my first ultra then you clearly don’t know me. If you don’t know me, allow me to enlighten you: whether I fail or succeed I always do so in a spectacularly grand way. I’m all or nothing, I take the limit of my fears and push them. The hardest stretch of the drive is over and now it’s smooth sailing to California. I’m extremely thankful that even while on the trip alone that I had two phone calls that definitely helped keep me level headed during a few of the harder moments of my drive . What would an adventure be without a little struggle? #gratefulrunner #taperweek #raceweek #ultratraining #ultramarathon #myfirstultra #i70 #colorado #runtherapy #runhappy #runner #marathoner #faceyourfears #firstultramarathon #roadtrip
There’s a first time for everything, so in a few hours I’ll head off on a  dark and rainy adventure around Kings Mountain State Park....for 50 kilometers. Ready to get the first ultra under my belt.  In the words of @ultramarathon “run when you can, walk if you have to, crawl if you must; just never give up”  #myfirstultra #50k #southcarolina #kingsmountain #kingofthemountain #raceday #runningmotivation #ultra #walkinthewoods #seeyouatthefinishline #meg #itsgotime #run #moto #ultrarunning
Ultra challenge run 47: THE LAST TRAINING RUN! Well today I actually ended up doing a cycle commute (total 11 miles from both ways) and a 2 mile run. At the office I had very restless legs and could still feel it when I got home so did my leg stretcher a day early. Was supposed to be 1.5 miles but got carried away 🙈  Feeling much better now so it's total rest tomorrow and a good stretch on the foam roller and I'm so so so excited 😊🎉 I skipped out of the office telling everyone the next time I see them I'll be an ultra runner!! #ultrachallenge #ultramarathon#myfirstultra #cyclecommute #hurtwood50 #runnersofinstagram #running
Ultra challenge run 46: Dulwich runners club run in storm Diana.  This is my... 'its raining please don't make me go out' look I gave Leo when he pushed me out the door (he was laughing BTW because apparently I look like a power ranger in my waterproofs 😂). Sorry for giving you all nightmares 😂😂 Only one more run now until the big day! #hurtwood50k #ultrachallenge #ultramarathon #myfirstultra #trailrunning #myfirstultra #running #dulwichrunners #clubrun #runnersofinstagram
I snuck in one last trail run at my favorite spot before heading to California on Friday for my first ultra. It was sort of like saying goodbye to an old friend and them wishing me luck. These trails have taught me all they could in preparation for my first ultra. They have felt my pain, listened to my secrets and shared in my joy this last month. I can’t wait to come back here next week and tell them all about my 50k! #gratefulrunner #taperweek #runitfast #ultratraining #hokaoneone #hokaspeedgoat2 #runner #trailrunner #trailrunning #trailrunninglife #trailrunninggirls #runlikeagirl #racelikeagirl #ultramarathon #myfirstultra #marathoner #bostonqualified #justrun #runhappy #runtherapy
SHITTT!! Race instructions have arrived and I feel sick hahaa  I stupidly looked down the list to see who else is running the ultra, only to find it's the running beasts of EERR (aka those who are incredibly inspiring and can do any race at any distance!) Ok so the thought of coming last now haunts me haha  Shit. On the 16th December between 8.04 - 15.49pm, please expect to see me crawling at some point!!!!! On an another note, I have decided to run for @whatyoudomatters (link on bio to sponsor my first ultra!!!) #challenge31 #ultra #myfirstultra #ultramarathon #training #marathontraining #30for30 #30fitnesschallenges #runnersofinstagram #runners #jecks30for30 #trainingmode #fitnessjourney #runningjourney #thisgirlcan  #instarunners #ukrunning  #eastendroadrunners #runningcommunity #ukrunchat #thisgirlcanuk #womenthatrun #londonrunners
I got my run(s) in, today. Got 8 laps in at Mission; only Mimi is open but it's a good opportunity to get some turns in, focus on form, and prepare for the season ahead. While I'm wishing for all-out winter, and this upcoming storm has me so excited, I guess it's good to ease into it and keep my focus on trail running. My 50k is less than 2 weeks away, and I can't afford to fizzle out yet! I got 5.5 miles on my feet in at Horse Lake this afternoon. I was going to do 8, but the trail is snowy, it was getting dark, and my unplanned sprints from yesterday have my legs feeling good. Taper time! A few short (sub 5 mi) runs to go! .  #50khereicome #myfirstultra #skiinthemorningtrailrunintheafternoon #trailrunningentomologist #skiingentomologist #pray4snow #protectourwinters #powderplease #moresnowplease
My longest run until my ultra has been completed and I did it all in darkness and alone at a state park. I ended up having to work later than expected and almost didn’t do this run. Running in town in the dark is easy for me but this was a mentally challenging . I had 2-3 more miles on the schedule but due to time constraints I am letting it slide. I’m feeling comfortable and confident in my training and running at this point. I’m just looking forward to checking off, “Complete an ultramarathon,” off my bucket list - then of course adding longer ultras on to that list. I’m proud of myself for letting my passion outweigh my fears. I’ve only gotten where I am by facing my fears and going beyond limits I thought I had, why stop now? Happy weekend y’all! #ultratraining #borntorun #hitthetrails #runitfast #ultras #myfirstultra #50k #runner #instarunner #runnersofinstagram #strava #stravarun #trailrunning #trailrunninglife #trailrunner #runinthedark #runlikeagirl #fitmom #badassmotherrunner
Ultra challenge run 45: Kent fitness league race 3 at oxleas Woods. Can't believe the turn out after the pwr Christmas party last night, I was glad not to have one of sore heads this morning 😂 Well that was bloody tough! The hills were relentless but it was a great warm up for next weekend. The countdown is on 🏃‍♀️😊 @pettswoodrunners #ultramarathon #myfirstultra#marathontraining #ultrachallenge #crosscountry #running #runnersofinstagram #run
After a VERY busy week, my body was tired even before the run! Endurance training is A LOT. It takes up a lot of your time and I have to calculate when to run, how long I might take and time to rest up before I do anything social. What I'm finding hard is balancing having a social life too. The night before a long run I might not be able to carb load or drink loads of water. Early runs are SUPER hard for me, especially as I do not have much of an appetite at that time. Today I suffered. I tried to rush out for a run so I can then spend the rest of the day having a weekend! I hit a wall pretty early on at 23km. But I'll happily take 31km.  #challenge31 #ultra #myfirstultra #ultramarathon #training #marathontraining #30for30 #30fitnesschallenges #runnersofinstagram #runners #jecks30for30 #trainingmode #fitnessjourney #runningjourney #thisgirlcan  #instarunners #ukrunning  #eastendroadrunners #runningcommunity #ukrunchat #thisgirlcanuk #womenthatrun #londonrunners
I've committed to this ultra race next year in April with my cousin @kmac1130. Anyone else want to get a little crazy?  Yeah.... #traprock50k #ketogenicdiet #keto #fatadapted #fueledbyfat #connecticut #trailrunning #myfirstultra
Ultra challenge run 44: Brockwell Parkrun! I thought I'd taken a fancy picture of me in the rain but it was just a big blur 😂 First mile my legs felt like 'leg' sorry lead... But I pushed on, found some friendly faces at parkrun, got a course PB (it's hilly!) and made it all the way home and it was bloody quick! 😊  As my last long run before the ultra I did a full kit test, found a few things I need to sort out which is helpful!  Cross country again tomorrow and then it's only a week to go! #ultrachallenge #ultramarathon#myfirstultra #parkrun #runnersofinstagram #running #parkrunfamily #hurtwood50k #oneweektogo

Imorse provsprang vi en delsträcka på ATR 61k som vi ska springa i april.  Det var stenigt, blött, hala klippor och enormt mycket lera. Trampade igenom ett par gånger, men fötterna höll sig torra. Hade nog blivit hjälpt av dubbar på vissa ställen där det var väldigt halt.  11 km enligt Garmin, 11,5 km enligt Polar. Över 200 höjdmeter och 179 i maxpuls.  Sammanfattningsvis - en underbar start på dagen i finfint sällskap.  Vi avslutade med stil och låg i 5:20-tempo de sista kilometerna. 👊🏻🏃‍♀️🏃‍♂️🌲⛰ #aktivitustrailrace #marathontraining #vj @vjsweden #myfirstultra #atr61k #jagspringer #ichlaufe #trailrunning #barrstigar #traillöpning #vjxtrm #springigbg #terränglöpning #laufenmachtglücklich #2xuwinddefense #underarmour #flipbelt #11k #11km #fitover40 #thebestgripontheplanet #lerslafs #offtrailrunning #snabbtaxen #lera #höjdmeter #elevation #östralångevattnet #härlandatjärn #delsjöarna
Ultra challenge run 43: Dulwich Runners club run 😊 I don't think I have ever said that was 'a nice and easy 5 miles' I've never been this fit before! I spent the whole 5 miles telling a complete stranger my life story (pretty standard for me) and when I got in the car I felt as if I'd just gone for a relaxed walk. No muscle aches, no pains, no struggling for breath! Definitely the type of run perfect for tapering 🏃‍♀️ I feel great!  #ultrachallenge #ultramarathon#myfirstultra #dulwichrunners #runnersofinstagram #running #clubrun
Cutting back on training for a few days; same intensity, less volume. E.g. the tough interval remains... ⠀ ⠀ Looking forward to hit the trails this weekend with fresh legs. Will be getting in some miles with @mudsweattrails ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #lifeisbetteronthetrails #mudsweattrails #trailchick #themountainsarecalling #coasttocoastdubai #imoveme #imovedubai #asicsfrontrunner #asicsfrontrunnernl #runnersworld #urbanrunning #urbanrun #runnersworldnl #roadtoultra #myfirstultra #athlete #fitspo #training #nevernotrunning #fitfam #adventureiscalling #asics
9️⃣ days to go! The term „tapering“ is the most fashionable word in Cape Town‘s trail community right now.  Less training means more time for other activities like working but also writing a new blog post.

A little #throwbackthursday picture to remind you that you’re stronger than you think you are.💙 For real, sister.  Think about one of those times when you kind of blew your own mind.  You surprised yourself.  You are strong, you are brave and you are powerful. . Don’t let life shake you down.  Don’t let that stress get to you too much or let someone else’s options matter more than your own.  Edit: it’s not Thursday. It’s only Tuesday. 🤦🏼‍♀️🤦🏼‍♀️🤦🏼‍♀️ - - - - - #liveinspired #wholesomegoodness #ultrarunning #newrivertrail50k #myfirstultra #bebadass #grablife #justgoforit #strongerthanyouthink #strongaf #strongmama #fitpregnancy #pregnantrunner #runningmama #womensrunningcommunity
I was giggling throughout the warm up thinking to myself "this is insane" haha  I love this family. Ugh, i have missed them. Thank you to Jo, my track mentor & Taffster for being lovely, energetic & supportive 💜  #track #tracktraining #challenge31 #ultra #myfirstultra #ultramarathon #training #marathontraining #30for30 #30fitnesschallenges #runnersofinstagram #runners #jecks30for30 #trainingmode #fitnessjourney #runningjourney #thisgirlcan  #instarunners #ukrunning  #eastendroadrunners #runningcommunity #ukrunchat #thisgirlcanuk #womenthatrun #londonrunners
Ultra challenge run 42: run commute in the rain 🌧️ Was dreading this because of the weather but it actually turned out quite pleasant, a breath of fresh air! I would like to thank everybody for all your lovely comments and support regarding my previous weight loss post for #transformationtuesday it's been a long journey and it's not ending here!  Starting to get a bit of ultra marathon paranoia which I only expect to get worse in the next 13 days 😂🏃‍♀️ If anybody has any last minute advice please advise away!! #ultrachallenge #ultramarathon#myfirstultra #runcommute #hurtwood50k
I'm not sure if I've done a proper transformation picture, I've never had the courage. The first was my first ever 5k in 2014, the second was at the start of my second marathon.  I have lost over 34kg from my running journey and changing from a unhealthy pub kitchen chef to a soon to be newly qualified mental health nurse. The beauty of my transformation is that I didn't do any crash diets, I literally changed my life. I joined a running club and I'm soon to be an ultra marathon runner (13 days!) I'm now 10 times happier in myself and I still treat myself everyday 😊🍰 #transformationtuesday #ultramarathon #myfirstultra #hurtwood50k #weightloss
Photos from Saturday, my last race of the year!  Thanks to all the awesome supporters in person and remote who have been awesome!  #nyrr60k #nyc60k #myfirstultra #inknburn #runningisbetterwithfriends #feedmeallthethings
😂😂🤣 This is my best race photo yet!! But seriously, thanks @frfischer for capturing this awesome and real moment. This was taken probably 5-6 hours in to an 8.5 hour+ run. Food is a necessity to continue and so here I am chowing down soup (broth), bananas, and m&ms as quickly as possible so I can keep moving. #realrunners #myfirstultra #nyrr60k #nyc60k

My biggest life mentor is my Godsister in Abu Dhabi. She really hypes me up, especially when I'm mentally preparing for a goal.  She told me today "when you plant a seed, you build a forest Jeck" !!! . . This year was:  My first race in the snow My first race in Brazil & it's crazy humidity  Bought my first wetsuit for my first experience of open water swimming  My first super sprint triathlon My first London triathlon (Sprint distance) My first cycle event (50 miles) My first Prudential London to Surrey cycle (100 miles) My first experience of international trekking (Base Camp Everest) My first 9 half marathons & 1 x 15 miler in a year My first fell run  My first ultra marathon is next month. Eek!  What I would like to attempt in the future: Open water swimming event Olympic distance triathlon  Machu picchu Kilimanjaro  But one step at a time, I'll get there. ..building my forest hahaa  #ultra #myfirstultra #ultramarathon #training #marathontraining #30for30 #30fitnesschallenges #runnersofinstagram #runners #jecks30for30 #trainingmode #fitnessjourney #runningjourney #thisgirlcan  #instarunners #ukrunning  #eastendroadrunners #runningcommunity #ukrunchat #thisgirlcanuk #womenthatrun #londonrunners
#medalmonday My last race of the season was also my very first ultra! I wish I could relive this day just one more time! I truly loved everything about it! The course was awesome, the volunteers were fantastic, and I checked another goal off my list! What an awesome way to end the season! #myfirstultra #myfirst50k #runfar #gothedistance #trailrunner #bigbrad #maine #mainerunner #vegansofig #trailrunner #ultrarunning
State #43 is in the books! Route 66 Marathon in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

La 24h alla No Finish Line 2018 di Monaco rappresentava la mia prima vera esperienza del territorio inesplorato dell’ Ultrarunning. Poco dopo il passaggio delle 18h ho raggiunto l’obiettivo ambizioso che mi ero prefissato prima di partire (gli inarrivabili 💯 chilometri). Ho un ginocchio un po’ gonfio e infiammato (che gia sta un po’ meglio dopo varie applicazioni di ghiaccio) e sono pieno di dolori ovunque, ma ho la consapevolezza di aver convissuto (anche nella solitudine e nel freddo della notte) con la parte migliore di me stesso...di avere conosciuto una parte di me che ignoravo di avere...Ne esco dolorante, un po’ ammaccato...ma rinnovato e migliorato nell’animo. Grazie alla @cuomofoundation per l’opportunitá e a tutti i miei stoici compagni di squadra. Ci siamo sostenuti a vicenda e non abbiamo mollato... @nflmonaco see you soon in 2019 😉😉 “..Quanto é dolce la vita se non la guardi attraverso la lente del fare ma dell’essere! Questo mi bastava e mi spingeva a correre. Provai ad accennare un passo, poi due; sentii una fitta di dolore ma continuai. Correvo! Senza eleganza, grinta o velocitá, ma correvo. Lasciando semplicemente scorrere la vita, tutto avrebbe ripreso a funzionare. Non dovevo vincere, dovevo solo permettermi di proseguire. Nessun segreto, nessun superpotere. I chilometri sn meditazione in movimento..” (Scott Jurek - Nord L’ultramaratona che mi ha cambiato la vita)  #nofinishlinemonaco #nofinishlinemonaco2018 #ultra #beultra #myfirstultra #ultrarunning #breakthelimit #runwithfriends #shareyourpassion #happyrunner #sofarsogood #runforcharity #cuomofoundation #marveladdicted #portdefontvieille #principautedemonaco #run #running #corsa #instarunning #instagood #strong #mentalstrong #time2run #lifestyle #active #motivation
My first Ultra Run.. Melaka Ultra (MATRA) 2018 50 KM. Didn't expect anything, just drag my "just complete it" mindset to Masjid Tanah, Melaka after work. Malam tu lah jugak baru nak arrange things to bring for the run. Tq Tiha and geng for tips and guidances.  Nervous on the starting line,  hoping that i can complete the run. The route is insanely tough physically and mentally. KM1 to KM19 was quite ok for me. After that the elevation is intensely increasing especially in Km30 to KM40. After CP5 (KM42),mentally down, bumped into @azaiii_ashzaii, and i decided to walk all the way 8KM to FL with him. It was a long stretch two lane busy highway. It was busy road, with extremely hot and humid weather. #nakmatirasa.  Sampai FL, I'm just grateful that i can complete the run within COT (9 hours). I learned a lot from this run, the exciting part, that i never thought Coke is a helpful in Ultra running and pleasing to quenched your thirst on the same time. I think i drank a pint in every CP. 😅😅😂. The best part to meet idola.2 runners and meeting a new group of runners whose immediately become your friends. Special thanks to. Ibu, coach Hadi, sir. Hadee, Anas, Jep, Tiha, Adzani, Daus, Zali, Azai and all. Tq for the tips and guidances.  #melakaultra2018 #matra2018 #myfirstultra #bolotez #demoxy #kitageng #moreultrarun😜
Ultra challenge run 41: Bedgebury trail half marathon! I've never been to Bedgebury Pinetum before but it is well worth a visit. Absolutely stunning even at this time of year 😊 With only 2 weeks to the Hurtwood 50k I decided to get some more trail running experience and got to run with my dad and sister as they did 1 lap (10k) and I did 2 and a bit for the half!  #ultramarathon #myfirstultra #marathontraining #runnersofinstagram #trailrunning #hurtwood50k #running #bedgeburyhalf
“Part of a runner’s training consists of pushing back the limits of his mind.” Kenny Moore  Yesterday was my final training run in preparation for the Over the Hills Track Club High Desert 50k on December 2. It was a brisk 19 degrees but felt like -5 with windchill - which are much different weather conditions than what I’ll be facing race day. I may have procrastinated starting the run but once I got moving it unfolded beautifully. I followed the nutrition plan I set out for the race during this run as well and everything went smoothly! I’m getting more and more excited as the days go by! I have a feeling that once I finish this race that you’ll be seeing me chasing farther distances in the next year. Today begins the dreaded, but necessary, taper for the final two weeks before race day. #ultrarunner #runningmotivation #ultratraining #ultramarathon #firstultra #myfirstultra #longdistancerunner #marathoner #marathon #saturdaylongrun #runner #badassmotherrunner #instarunners #runnersofinstagram #trailrunner #trail #trailrunning #trailrunninglife #justrun #runhappy #chasingdistance #followingdreams #stravarun

Today's mantra: "I am a runner. I am an East End Road Runner. I can do this." 20 miles of 2km laps around my local parkrun DONE but my body is broken!!!!! (I'm very impressed that I was 10km away from a marathon!!) #challenge31 #ultra #myfirstultra #ultramarathon #training #marathontraining #30for30 #30fitnesschallenges #runnersofinstagram #runners #jecks30for30 #trainingmode #fitnessjourney #runningjourney #thisgirlcan  #instarunners #ukrunning  #eastendroadrunners #runningcommunity #ukrunchat #thisgirlcanuk #womenthatrun #londonrunners
Ultra challenge run 40: dad's birthday parkrun! Dad and I 'took it easy' which ended in negative splits (10:31, 9:29, 8:56!) in preparation for the bedgebury half tomorrow. Now off for some wine tasting at Denbies wine estate! #ultrachallenge #ultramarathon#myfirstultra #parkrun #runnersofinstagram #running #parkrunfamily #denbieswineestate
@epic_pickles thank you for coming on my running adventures without even knowing it! #60k #myfirstultra #hopefullytheweathergetsbetter #iwanttodrinkallthepicklejuice #shouldhavepackedthespicyjuice #epicpickles
Ok confession, I have been avoiding my Instagram because I just didn't want to see fitness posts 😩🙈! It's been tough, never really 'processed' Everest when I got back, dealing with a bereavement & life & it's nonsense all means preparing for my ultra has been SHIT.  Shit. Shit. Shit.  I do not want to be Negative Nancy or Moany Mertle but this week I made a decision to be a slob and every day after work, do nothing. Doing nothing for someone like me is a weird place but it's needed.  My partner in ultra crime (ha) is no longer running that distance but ive got too much love for him ,I cant be upset. Winter sucks and taking care of your health is way more important.  My ankle is ok, but not 100% (i have NEVER rolled my bastard ankle before running). I feel like I can run on it.  ONE MONTH to go until my ultra and the odds are against me. SHIT. I'm not in a strong place mentally, ive only gone up to 17 miles, im constantly eating badly, skin is pants, my ankle is a litttllleee bit (🤔) sore, the person i signed up with isnt running but I've come on here and seen my favourite fitties continue to achieve amazing things:  Getting pbs, reaching new miles, running in crazy rain, receiving new medals, getting into marathons- i LOVE seeing those posts. I get excited for them!  Ok, my plan of action- I'm STILL doing this ultra.  It might change. . . It might not. . . Right now, its still on.  #challenge31 #ultra #myfirstultra #ultramarathon #training #marathontraining 30for30 #30fitnesschallenges #runnersofinstagram #runners #jecks30for30 #trainingmode #fitnessjourney #runningjourney #thisgirlcan  #instarunners #ukrunning  #eastendroadrunners #runningcommunity #ukrunchat #thisgirlcanuk #womenthatrun #londonrunners
Ultra challenge run 39 : @dulwichrunners club run! I decided I was going to go for it and I did! The total time was including a few breaks and my last mile was my quickest since ultra training - 8:54 minutes per mile! So so happy and my legs feel stronger than ever.  I would not have finished the 5m in such a speedy time without the support from the lovely ladies at the club! Especially when I nearly didn't end up going in the first place 😊 #ultrachallenge #ultramarathon#myfirstultra #clubrun
Ouffff!! Un bon workout! 🏋🏻‍♀️💪🏼 Maintenant les intervalles Longval courts! 🙌👏🏼🥳 Mes journées préférées! 👍🏼💪🏼😉 #myfirstultra #loverunning #lovefitness #tryingtobefit #runner #longdistancerunnerinthemaking
It's been two days and I can walk stairs already! When are we doing this again? #myfirstultra
Step 1 of my “my perfect day” day!  Gym session! ✅ 🏋🏻‍♀️💪🏼 (After à week of having hard time with boulimia!) Step 2 in at least 2 hours running! Might be on the treadmill because of my son schedule! 👍🏼🙈🏃🏽‍♀️ (It’s ok I’m still running)  Step 3 defi la planche! The plank challenge! (I haven’t check of many second do I have to do! 🙈) Doing the best I can to stay focus !  I will achieve it! 🏃🏽‍♀️👍🏼💪🏼👏🏼 #myfirstultra #tryingtobefit #loverunning #lovefitness #ontheroadtomyfirstultra #phaseacidobasiqueenprogres #mysixpack #running #runner #runnergirl
Ultra challenge run 38: cross-country! My first cross country event at the KFL at Swanley Park was an Eye opener. I don't know what I was expecting but it is very hard running on energy sapping mud 😂 it rained halfway round so I couldn't see anything through my glasses, but it was good fun and I'm looking forward to the next! Beautiful conditions and I'm pleased with my result 😊 @pettswoodrunners #ultrachallenge #ultramarathon#myfirstultra #trailrunning #crosscountry #xcountry #runnersofinstagram #running #pettswoodrunners
What have I done? Succumbed to peer pressure, that’s what. 😱🙏🏻🏃🏼‍♀️🤘🏻 #skeeterskoot #50k #myfirstultra #neverupneverin #feetdontfailmenow #ultrarunning #lowexpectations #fewdisappointments
When training gets tough, I have to decide who I want to be - someone who gives up or someone who pushes through. My head was not in the right frame of mind so I had to run with my heart.  I rolled my ankle at 17km but I kept going. It rained, poured, got surprisingly hot & then rained more. I was very close to giving up today but I didn't.  27 km / 16.8miles done! 🙌 . . . . Only when I stopped did I feel how sore my ankle is.. SHIT!!! #challenge31 #ultra #myfirstultra #ultramarathon #training #marathontraining 30for30 #30fitnesschallenges #runnersofinstagram #runners #jecks30for30 #trainingmode #fitnessjourney #runningjourney #thisgirlcan  #instarunners #ukrunning  #eastendroadrunners #runningcommunity #ukrunchat #thisgirlcanuk #womenthatrun #londonrunners
