Had a comfortable 10km this morning. Happy to say my fitness is improving again quickly! Focusing on posture and form which in turn made the run less painful! Mr 8 has decided he wants to run too so he and I went out for a quick 1km.... I'm going to have to find someone who can keep up with him as I definitely can't 😳 #runbrave #rflifestyle #rfgear #evolutionrunners #runningmumsaustralia #garminau #beatyesterday #runtheworld #rundownunder

The last two weeks have been the most amazing experiences of my life, from completing my first marathon in Long Beach California, which was so testing but such a character building experience, it showed me I can achieve anything when I am focused and if I really put my head to it I can do better! To spending my final week of holidays in Kona for the @ironmantri world championship and volunteering on race day. Seeing the best in the world race in the toughest conditions was mind blowing, I got to see some of my triathlon hero's which I will never forget BUT I also got to support an amazing lady Shaz who has had such an inspiring journey and she absolutely nailed it! It was perfect motivation to refocus myself after a crazy 6 weeks away to come home with a fire inside me to get back to achieving everything I want from life. If you want to feel truly alive and have your soul awoken go to Kona and you will come back feeling like you can tackle the world! #runlongbeach2017 #swimbikerun #run #runner #running #ironman #imkona #alive #volunteer #inspiration #hurtingsucks #fisiocremaustralia #marathontraining #focused #instarunners #2xu #garmin #triathlon #Kona #goals #17hours #keepdreaming #keepachieving #training #backtobasics #runbrave

It’s been a while between running events for me lately but this one is very important to me. 
Run Brave is an initiative to help those living with mental illness to manage their symptoms as well as reducing the stigma by bringing awareness and talking about it. 
This is close to my heart... Founder of the initiative, Kate Butterfield, also knows this struggle all too well. As an ex police officer, Kate lives with PTSD. Running has quite literally saved her life and she wants to get the word out there how something as simple as running can impact on our lives in a positive way. 
I am going to hopefully be running Brave on 4 November in the virtual run and want you all to join me. If I’m not running I will be walking Brave.

Simply head to www.runbrave.com.au and register for the anytime option. 
If you can't Run Brave with me you can still run Brave where ever you are at a time and a distance that suits you. 
Please help me spread the word and let's Run Brave together! πŸ™πŸ’™

After a tragic 9km on Monday I decided to give myself a confidence boosting 5km today. I didn't account for the humidity and ended up slick with sweat. I had been hoping to avoid the rain but after 1km I was wishing for a light sprinkle! Have set my sights on a new goal and I'm looking forward to working towards it #runbrave #evolutionrunners #runningmumsaustralia #rfgear #rflifestyle #runtheworld #rundownunder #garminau #beatyesterday

So....I did a thing. Kind of want to do a few different animals and phrases. I would say it depends on interest, but let's be real- it's fun and I enjoy it so I'll probably do it anyways. Link is on my blog under header 'Run Wild' (see bio!) You can get the design on a ton of apparel!

Humid, slightly windy run after dinner tonight. Possibly a little too soon after TBH, side stitch kicked in for a couple of k’s mid run and even though it went away eventually, I never really recovered any pace during the remainder of the run. Stopped the #Fenix3 at 40 minutes with 8.1km done.

We all run races.
For some of us it’s a 42km marathon.
For some it’s getting through our to-do list.
For some it’s running from the stream of destructive thoughts that keep us a prisoner of fear and depression.
.
No matter what race you’re running, keep these words in mind - RUN. BRAVE.
.
Turn around and face your challenges.
Run towards them - as scary as they may be - instead of away from them.
.
Our challenges are a calling from life to love the places that we’ve neglected.
Our challenges are a call from the universe, to access a part of our inner strength that we never knew we had.
Our challenges are a call for us to use the courage, wisdom, resilience, determination and love that lies within…always.
.
RUN. BRAVE.
.
Today’s post is to support our ambassador @kate.runs.the.world and her awareness campaign @run.brave - a campaign to help those surfing the tides of mental illness. .
For those in need - you are never alone, there is always help

β˜€οΈβ˜€οΈβ˜€οΈWhat a day to start a new training plan, slowly does it 🐒 want to avoid illness & injury so I can reach my goals next yr πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€— #runfit #runningmum #runbrave #runformentalhealth #runforfun #runnersofinstagram #mumsthatrun#runtheworld
So I’m now in the taper phase of my marathon training, the hard work is done, now I’ve just got to keep the legs ticking over until the big day. 
I just want to take a moment to share my experience of having a running coach. Especially for those considering one, but thinking that coaches are only for the elite, the podium finishers and the β€˜fast’ runners. 
Well I’m definitely none of those...
I’m a solo parent of a 5 and 3 year old who works full time. I have enough on my hands, but I still have dreams... One of those dreams is to run a marathon. I registered and told no one. Did I really think I could do it? No! 
A week later I did tell Insta-buddy, running coach, and founder of @run.brave, @kate.runs.the.world
That day she became my coach. 
I now had a program to follow. I was ready. Or was I? Either way I started to tell people and got ridiculed. Yet, strangely I found support on Instagram, mostly from people I’ve never met. 
Week 12 saw my first mental meltdown. 2km into my 14km run, my longest run to that date, and I was sitting on the side of the main road in tears. I messaged Kate. Who over the next hour was a voice of reason while I shuffled on for another 6km, tears still flowing. 
Without a coach this day it would have undoubtedly been the last day of my marathon dream. 
The next day I set out to run 18km. I was desperate to prove to myself I could do it. Kate was right, I could, and did.
Week 21 was the next major setback as I ran the Husky Half Marathon and injured my hip 2km into the race. Somehow I finished the race, mainly because I felt I couldn’t let my coach down after the effort she had put into me. This injury brought on another wave of negativity that would’ve seen me quit. Kate still believed I could do the second half of my program. So combining the program with physio’s advice, I did. 
Life has thrown up more than it’s fair share of challenges which has lead to a less than ideal preparation, but no matter what happens next Sunday, I will be at the start line of my first marathon, and I will have made it there for one reason... because I had a coach. 
A coach who believed in me when I didn’t. 
I cannot thank you enough @kate.runs.the.world

When you are early for your physio appt at @the_physio_studio you decide to roll out yesterday’s half marathon pains.... #thephysiostudio #mekongmakesmefaster #mekongathletic #waveblade #rollitout #runbrave
Slightly unconventional flat lay. Ran 10kms into work today. Had to fit my dress, a long sleeve top, a cardi, tights, soap, water flask, foundation and lipstick πŸ’„πŸ˜¬, a snack πŸ˜‚ @at_one_foods , keys, glasses πŸ‘“, towel... thank goodness I left my work shoes at the office. And I’ll get to run 10kms home again in an hr! .

I don’t do it for medals I do it for memories. (And I prefer towels...tho they wouldnt make as pretty a photoπŸ˜†) One day when I’m in the nursing home, I’ll hopefully have my marbles and be able to go through all these and relive the events and good times I had collecting them. #medalmonday #myrunjourney #gratefulican 
the next #runbrave Challenge is on 4 Nov... who’s in? I’m looking forward to our run group having a social run in support of this one.  Get on. It’s not too late to join. Check out  @run.brave #torunistolive for more.

Today I moved for a miserable 9km. I think I complained for probably about 6 of them. I knew it was going to be hard as I've barely run for a month and the last week Ive had a terrible cough which has had a big impact on my fitness! It can only get better and I know the next 2 weeks will be tough as a claw back my fitness.... but I'll get it done #runbrave #evolutionrunners #garminau #beatyesterday #rflifestyle #rfgear #runningmumsaustralia
