Two beautiful days hiking from Algeria to Sandrift by way of Riempies se Gat. And my first sleep under the stars in the Cederberg.

The head wants to sprint and the body says, woah buddy, let’s just chill. 🙃

100miles of Gratitude
I’ve been struggling to write something up about Grand Raid. And what I’ve come to realize is the reason I’m not sure what to write is because my overall feeling is being grateful.
Yes there were hard parts. There were easy parts. There were moments of elation and moments I was in tears, but underneath all those temporary feelings, I was thankful.
Thankful I have a coach who is first and foremost an amazing friend. Who has taught me to listen to my body. Who has led by example that finding that sweet spot isn’t about a speed, but about tapping into that love of being in the mountains.
Thankful for friends whose voices and memories I replayed in my head when I needed to problem solve or a little encouragement.
Thankful that my mom instilled a love and a deep appreciation for the outdoors. There is no where I would rather be.
I loved this hundred miles. I loved every rock, root, and tree I had to navigate. I loved meeting a local who had run the course 15 times. I loved having Andre and Willemien at the finish. I loved that my Airbnb host was more excited than I was. I loved the cheap beer and the twenty minute fireworks display. I love that given the chance I would do it all again.

As so many people before me have said, Reunion, Grand Raid, is a little bit of magic. Get there if you can.

#tbt to my first ultra two years ago. I was completely clueless. I remember messaging my one and only friend who also did trail running after I finished, “wtf was that? Do you always crawl thru caves, climb ladders, and use a rope to repel yourself down a muddy cliff?”. That was 60k and 1500m, in j-8 there will be 165k and 9500m ahead of me. Sometimes I don’t know who’s life I’m living, but I’m grateful to be along for the ride, for the people I’ve met, the friends I’ve made, and being able to play in big beautiful mountains. #prayforme 😉

Taper week is straight up play time! Mini front face scramble linking up to India, table top cruise, painfully slow decent down Llandudno using my phone as light (🤦🏼‍♀️ thought the torch was in the pack) and a mad sprint home. Can we start #thebestmountain ?

A mini adventure following the cliff line. And completely obsessed with the moon rise the last few days 😍 Scroll thru to see what I mean. .

Some days we are pushing and pulling each other towards big goals. And then we have days like today, where we do our best to blend in with the mountain, take new paths and stop for long chats. We may not solve all of life’s problems, but it sure helps to have friends willing to share the load and maybe leave one or two of those heavy thoughts along the trail.

Some days I really struggle with reality and I would much rather live with my head in the clouds. These clouds looked particularly inviting on Sunday morning.

Love playing on my mountain. Especially when the wind helps you acheive Matrix like moves.

Playing on the rocks makes me feel like a technical ninja, especially when Cypress Hill comes on 😂

To clear the mind, shed the emotional clutter, and reset. To be reminded we are small, yet mighty, in this big wide world.

Sometimes the difference between being angry with yourself and with someone else is but a whisper. And so I went in search of a little compassion for us both on this cloudy morning run.
