Still building that base mile by mile for the next 3 months, with Marine Corps Marathon next! Most days my workouts are complete by 8am and consist of weights, plyometrics, and running. They don’t have to be long or intense to still be worth it- it is consistency that is key 🔑 💪🏼. My favorite runs are like today’s that have a smooth flow to them/60% effort....and I’m really enjoying this not-so-hot cloudy Sunday for sure😊🌥. On a side note, Social media can really suck us in sometimes and it’s important to recognize when we are spending more time on our phones than living in the moment. So I encourage you to do a self check! I still run and lift almost every day, have amazing moments with my family and friends, create amazing hair, and cook & eat healthy picture-worthy foods all the time—I just stopped documenting it all! I’m still living my best life every day, don’t worry 😉 #happyweekend#run#behappy#smile#marathontraining#maryland#marinecorpsmarathon#strength#fitness#motivation#miles#training
Day 48: I am LOVING my new @camelbak that @lizmcguire88 got me as a late anniversary gift! 3 mile trail run today, definitely need to do these more often! Body’s feeling great! Knee is improving, finally hitting my stride!
RTTS part 4 - we were ultra runners now
Leaving pit stop 4 we had just 7km left. Or so we thought - anyone else slightly gutted the 50k mark came and went when you still couldn't see base camp?! 😂 But we were on a bit of a high on the home straight now
Well I was. I decided we needed to sing. And dance. So I did. Loudly. Firstly to the Greatest Showman soundtrack, then to various 80s songs. Music held high, singing across the ridgeway, laughing, dancing, all with some brilliant friends. Although this wasn't the run I'd planned, god I'd enjoyed it. And I wouldn't have done without them all by my side. Though by the time I was on song 8 of the soundtrack I bet they wish I was a bit further away from them 😂 though everyone we passed seem to laugh and smile at our enthusiasm, even 49k down
The last hill came and we could see the finish line. Martin and Letty told us to push on so we did - well I tried. The first time I'd tried to run in 15 miles and every step hurt, I thought my finisher photos would be grimaces. 10hr 22 minutes after stepping through that start line, with umpteen oranges, falls, blisters, swear words, and hugs, we had done it. We were ultra runners. And we were done
Basecamp was food, drink, showers (bliss) and chatting to lovelies like Martha and Charlie. Reflecting in the sunset of a day unlike any I'd ever had before. Would I repeat it? Not there, the Ridgeway didn't make me fall in love. Am I going to run another ultra?

Je suis seule à la maison depuis 2 jours. Une évidence, je ne pourrais plus être célibataire sans enfants. J'étais persuadée que ces quelques jours seule seraient une félicité, un bonheur. En réalité, je suis perdue.
Je fais mille choses patronnantes comme nettoyer les plinthes, balayer la terrasse. Je vois des copains aussi... on joue de la musique, on boit des bières mais je suis perdue chez moi !
Et puis je me suis levée trop tard. Trop chaud pour courir. Je me suis fait violence. Aller, 4-5 km pour la forme. Et puis finalement, 11,3, agréables. Lents. Bons ! (J'avoue que les 30 degrés à l'arrivée, c'était vraiment très chaud)
Had a medium distance run today. Met some lovely people on the route! Love it when people acknowledge you. Complete strangers who can spare a second to say a simple ‘good morning’. Thank you! People may need to see that smile. It may just make the difference they need. 🏃🏼♀️ 🏃♂️ ☀️
Wanna see your pictures posted in our account? Apply for a feature on worlderunners.com/feature (link in my bio: @worlderunners) | Here’s me running up some steps (as always) - I hadn’t posted in a while apart from my stories.
Me running steps symbolises big change in my recovery from the surgeries. I’m working hard and aiming to start jumping next week! If all goes well then you might just see me back on a runway soon.
March, I’m coming for you 😈 (📹: @gregjrutherford) Follow @worlderunners for more.
