The @ratracehq Wall 2018. A 69 mile road race along Hadrian’s Wall. Roads are hard going, especially for 69-70 miles and off the back of a 100 mile ultra the week before. Managed to make it in just over 15 hours thanks to @juliusnaim and the brilliant pit stops and Marshall’s. 4 seasons in one day - from torrential rain to blazing sun. What a race. Congrats to @rocky_road_lorna on her second lady - what a legend. Now for a few weeks of rest and training. And a very special trip to Snowdon on Tuesday. Watch this space! .

What an adventure that was. South Downs Way 100. 100 miles from Winchester to Eastbourne, with 12.700ft elevation (that’s 3 time’s up and down as Snowdon) completed in 23 hours and 28 mins - 10 mins faster than my last time on a much flatter course. A whirlwind of emotions, it was me pushing myself to my total limit. It made me realise what and exceptional group of people ultra runners are with support from everyone on the course, high fives, inspirational chats and so much love and care for each other. I will never be able to thank @leestuartevansairlandandsea and @rocky_road_lorna for their pacing and support enough. After 1 hours sleep in 31 hours I feel very emotional but super proud. I learnt a lot. I came, I saw, I got my buckle. Thank you to everyone who helped me. .

It’s a big one this weekend - #SDW100 which will see me attempt to beat my PB for 100 miles. Got plan A, B and C worked out and spending this week trying to learn to run a bit slower which is harder than it sounds..... 6 miles in the sun through Hackney this morning 💜

A very, very hot Dorchester Marathon today with the glorious @whitestarrunning. Managed a 4.15 with 3 hours sleep and a hangover. Standard behaviour! Another epic WSR race in the bag! .

After a slow week following some sad news and The Ox Epic it’s time to get serious about the #SDW100. Got out in the sun and saw the ducklings. Ran without headphones so I had space to think and take in the fact that life has to go on. Let’s get this 100 miler in the bag. .

Some of you know that I had some terrible news about a very close friend on Friday morning. I was truly broken and life became a foggy blur of sorrow, shock, anger and devastation. I was due to run The Ox Epic- 10k Friday, 54 miles Saturday, 10k Sunday Morning followed straight after by a 14 mile “half” Marathon. When I got the news, I started falling into that familiar hole of despair and hopeless circular nothingness. I found myself alone but completely inundated with kindness and offers of help. I couldn’t cope with it, and switched off my phone, so I am sorry to everyone I haven’t replied to., I just needed time out, as a lot of you did. I got to the start of the first race, I put one foot in front of the other, and with the support and help of my fellow Do-Badders and the White Star Running family, I managed to not only complete the 81 mile Epic, but come in First Lady. I believe my anger and frustration played a part; make no mistake, this was a distraction. I am overwhelmed by how loved people have made me feel and am forever in debt to those around me. Running has always been my sanctuary. This was the best place, the only place, for me to be this weekend. It has proved the running community to be the kindest and most solid place for me to slowly recover. Thank you to everyone who has been there. Scott, this one’s for you. Sleep well my dear friend.
