Aftermath of a different kind of hangover 🏃🏼♀️🏜 thanks @alicewright139 for letting me drag you along a cliff for 8 miles all for that @strava QOM 👑
Had fun this morning on hike we hadn't done in years. Looking forward to more trips this summer when the crossings are easier and with more friends who want to explore some new areas.

The best part of backpacking I’ve found so far is the people you meet at hostels, then bump into again days or weeks later completely randomly. They become instant friends and everyone has tips and advice to help each other out.
Today I got stopped at the hostel by a French lady who was wondering why I was running along this snowy ridge in the mountains today. She took a photo and tracked me down at the hostel tonight to share it with me. .

Marla’s first race!🎉
We went down to Maryland to run the inaugural Cow Bone Trail Run because we had so much fun at Greenbrier Ultras, and it didn’t disappoint! I ran with both doggos and made it out unscathed. One loop is all it took for Marla to get comfortable with all of the other runners along the trail and fall in to a nice rhythm
We took long breaks with ice bath towels in between each loop and walked when Marla needed to, so we only laid down 11 miles in the 3 hours we attended but we had a great time, and this was her longest and first double digit run so absolutely a win🏆
Vivir en un pueblo donde apuestan por la compatibilidad entre el deporte y la familia... ¡MOLA! 😜
O que levo daqui são as lembranças do que um dia eu vivi. Apesar das muitas fotos que tirei, o verdadeiro registro será sempre o que está em minha mente. Só posso agradecer por tudo isso e esperar que em algum dia eu possa voltar.
Back home and cleaned up after a messy and muddy day on the trails for Survival Of The Fittest 35km race...to say that today didnt go well for me would be an understatement haha...to start with, I slept in, which I NEVER do (wanted to leave my house by 6:00 AM sharp and woke up at 6:05!) and then my whole day was f*cked after that...mindset was off, was so out of sync, legs felt heavy and sluggish from the beginning and at no point did I feel good or positive out there...it's a beautiful but really tough course, with tons of elevation and a massive, never-ending hill climb (8-ish kms I think) and it poured rain the entire time, was a total mudfest after a while...super slippery and treacherous and I bailed super hard, it was such a struggle to finish this one...pretty disappointing time (5:26) and now I'm questioning if I ever want to run again lol 🤣🤷♂️🤪 .

I hope everyone can have the opportunity to be part of a running group as cool as mine. Supportive, fun, encouraging people who are always up for a group run. 6am.. lots of Yetis showed up and even more at various times throughout the morning.. and 20 trail miles later.. I’ll call that a great morning. Shout out to my husband @sums_19 & friend @dblum23 who ran their longest continuous distance today & killed it. Those muddy, wet trails are no joke! I was also blessed with one of my original running friends, who set me up for success with my first half marathon to surprise me for a few miles. ❤️ It doesn’t get any better than that. #runhappy my friends.. 50k training is going strong! ✌🏼 #catholicwomenrun #yetitrailrunners #runfriends #couplesgoals #coupleswhorun #50training #ultratraining #trailrunning
10k Rompin Rockwood race today. This is my year of focusing on trail races and this was a fun local event. I got to see trails of Rockwood Park that I have been never been on which was cool. Lots of single track which was new for me and tons of hills, mud and rock and it was an unusually hot day here at 18C. 🤪 I underestimated the technicality and difficulty of the trail for sure but I gave it my all. Finished middle of the pack at 1:18:12. Trail Running definitely kicks my butt but I’m excited to see how I progress with 12 more weeks of #50ktraining to go. I am really proud of my hubby Neil too. He told me to go ahead so he could take it easy after coming back from an injury but he caught up to me and we were able to run most of the race together. 😊
I needed this little boost today as this week was not the best for me. It’s tough sometimes trying to juggle a young family with a career and then adding this training on top of it. I ended up skipping my group run and a cross training day this week. It may not have been what the plan said but it’s what I needed to do to keep sane. I finished with 23km to wrap up Week 12 of #50ktraining. Big 20miler ahead so I need to get ready for that this week. 💪🏻
Thank you for all the bday wishes for Sam too! It was very sweet and I will reply to you all. ❤️ He had a fun birthday. Sorry for long post and have a great day everyone! ☺️👊🏻
