Finished my 3rd Blackall 100 today on a changed course(same as last year) & got it done in around 13hrs 54mins(and getting the Silver Buff for Sub14hrs) with super limited training and atrocious conditions 😊😕 It rained pretty much all day and to make it worse, the ground was already saturated so water flowed quickly everywhere and it was slippery, sloppy, water logged and cold towards the end ☔⛄ Started running with another guy for about 45 km or so and dragged each other to the end, I'd still be out there if we hadn't joined forces.. 👌
Massive shout out to my Nos 1 crew Kelly Greaney, looked after me most of the day and also had to sit in the rain in freezing conditions 😍
And also to Checkpoint 4 & 5(manned by Brisbane Trail Runners Steven Kernohan and the NUTRS from Noosa Tylana Woodward, they had a monster job on their hands and excelled in Shit weather also, thanks so much... 👌
Pretty happy with getting 2 x 100km Ultras done this year on no training, just goes to show what your body can do when you put your mind to it.. 😉
Until next time... 🏃🏃🏃 #blackall100#ultramarathon#ultrarunner#100km#sub14#atrociousconditions#run#runner#running#altra#injinji#fusionmultisports#ultraspire#salomon#tailwind#gonnatrainfornextone

Coming in to the 21ish mile aid station of PM2HR 50miler. I was finally mostly rehydrated by this point after some not fun number two issues. Beat last years time by an hour. Hips hurt 60-70% of the day. Never had issues in training, so I’m not sure what was up. Happy I found extra grit to push on!
