Marathon7500 - 115km, 8500m+ elevation gain, 3rd place overall🥉A race that pushed my endurance and navigation skills to the edge, literally. Ultras are like Life; when things get tough we have two choices: either quit and deal with the regrets later, or grind harder, raise above the clouds and scream 👉 F💥CK IT, I’ll MAKE THE BEST OF IT! 👊📷 #marathon7500

One week and I'll be back at the cabin at the lake, assuming the wildfire allows it...
The fire boundary is about 10k from the far end of the lake at the moment and the area is on evacuation notice. Conditions have improved in the last couple days which has slowed its growth so I'm optimistic that the trip will be a go but I'm trying not to get excited just yet. My family has also said the air quality has been very poor which has me concerned about being able to run.
I can't tell you how much I appreciate and respect the BC Wildfire Service and all others fighting forest fires throughout the West. I just want all involved to stay safe ❤️ And if I could spend some time at the lake and a day running through the mountains, that would be pretty sweet too 🤞

SUM100k...the aftermath, part four.
.
by the time I made it to @rberghammer at AS4 I was approximately 37 miles into my race...over halfway + miles beyond the 55k distance I had seriously considered dropping down to.
.
I had gone further than the shorter race...but not far enough to get credit for a finish. if I walked away now my distance wouldn't actually matter. it would just be the distance I covered before I gave up.
.
besides, I was headed back above treeline just in time for the stunning sunset views + with miles of time beneath a sky streaked by the perseid meteor shower.
.
in reality I was deep in the woods when the sun burned fiery red + spent far too much time staring at my feet to catch many glimpses of shooting stars.
.
but I did have the sweeper [yup, making me DFL!] behind me. some may consider that a bad thing, but after about 20 miles alone I was happy to have company...especially the company of someone who shared my 'run for fun' take on life. we are both in this limbo of race vs run + it was so incredibly hopeful to have someone who understood why I wanted to quit, but also why I kept going.

From Day 2 - We took a “rest day” this trip where we stayed at Red Eagle Lake for 2 nights in a row. This gave us one day where we didn’t have to wake up and pack up, so we went exploring down the Continental Divide Trail. We spent a lot of time at this location where we picked berries and went swimming in the creek (very briefly) 🏊‍♂️🍓🏔️ #glaciernationalpark #glaciernps #continentaldividetrail #redeaglecreek

I keep thinking about this incredible woman, who crossed the finish line of the Bigfoot 200 with tears running down her face. She told me that she had put in over 250,000ft of vertical gain during her training for the race. I couldn’t help but become emotional seeing the joy and triumph overtaking her. I later walked by her as one of the volunteers was propping up her feet. I couldn’t help but ask her if I could take a photo. She thought it was hilarious, I think it’s a visual representation of hard work, grit and determination. Damn, I love this sport and the people in it. #bigfoot200 #dirtbagrunners #ultrarunning #trailrunning #trailandultra #grit

Sunshine & smiles. Throwing it back to our short visit in Zion after Tushars Marathon. It was pretty hot out the day of our visit & there were lots of tourists (not on this little path though 😜). These red rocks call to me & one day I’ll really get a chance to really explore them.

The RD of #Bulldog50K announced this week that they have taken 30 min off the 15-mile cutoff, with NO early starts allowed. 😳😱 .
.
This means we need to do the first 15+ miles and 2,700’ gain in under 4 hours... 🏃🏼‍♀️ Challenge accepted. 😈👍🏻 .
.
Temps are projected to hit 87-92 deg F 🔥 on race day. It’s a course with 5,572’ gain and descents that hurt worse than the climbs! 🤷🏼‍♀️ .
.
My training in the 2 months since the car accident has been largely treadmill walks and only a few trail miles. I have no idea if I’ll make the cutoff. But I know I’ll have a blast trying! .
.
Plus, the heat won’t knock me down this time baby, because I’ll be wearing my #PolarHugUSA ice bandana! .
.

Let’s do this! 😬👍🏻 Um, well, in a week. Let’s do this in a week. 🤣👍🏻 #100MileTraining

I’m exhausted this week and didn’t want to get out so I recruited my adventure partner @taradactyl02 last night to catch the sunset! I can’t wait to spend the weekend adventuring with her, thanks Instagram for always bringing me rad partners 😊 📷 @taradactyl02

I pressed snooze two or three times yesterday morning and convinced myself that I should stay in bed and skip my morning run. It worked and I fell back asleep. 😴 But then I felt guilty all day... Today I got up. 😬 It’s Dark o’clock and I’m getting ready for the track. It sucks right now but I know that I’ll feel better as soon as I get out the door. And tomorrow is Saturday, which means trail day! 🎉#trailrunning #hongkong #thisishongkong

Waking the legs up for the Pikes Peak Marathon up in Leadville today. Hoping a bit of elevation will give me that extra edge this weekend. Got to meet up with some Leadville 100 runners which is super inspiring, might toss my hat in to the lottery for next year just to see what happens 🙄

so much to get caught up on. so many things i want to share with everyone about this truly amazing journey. i will get to all of that, but none will mean as much to me or be as important as this. these are the people that made this journey happen. they took time out of their own lives. they incurred expenses to be here. they traveled to these remote mountains. they made sure they were physically as ready as possible to endure countless hours on their feet wandering through the mountains with me. they cleaned my disgusting feet. they kept me alert, fed, and on point at every moment. one of them was with me every step from mile 46.5 to the 206.5 mile finish. they were completely selfless in every way possible and their only concern was to serve me in any way possible to get me through this beautiful adventure. there really aren’t the words to properly express my gratitude for these people but i just want to say that this truly epic journey and accomplishment is as much yours as it is mine. i would have been nothing without my team. thank you. we did it... #bigfoot200 .

#tbt to Devil’s Bridge in Sedona with @palindrome_rnr. Such a fun time exploring that beautiful landscape by doing B2B training runs of a half marathon then a marathon.

Flashback to the @hurthawaii Manauwili 22 miler. The anticipation leading up to this race was intense. This is a fairly runnable course except the terrain is not the friendliest. It traverses at the base of the koolau range and snakes in and out of gulches for 11 miles. There was no question in my mind that I was gonna go down at some point in this race. I always do. Even in training when going easy a root you didn’t see or a slippery rock will get you. Just as I got settled in at mile 8 chasing 1st and 2nd closely I went down hard. Thankfully no major injury. #painface #HURTStrong PC: Brent Wong .

Went on my first “hike” today since I fell. It was 4.5 km. It wasn’t technical and it didn’t look like this. But this is the exact hike I’m working towards. Fingers crossed it comes sooner than later!

#tbt to a quick stop at Badwater Basin. Makes for a pretty epic weekend when you can see the lowest point in the US the day after summiting the highest peak in the lower 48!! Swipe to see the spring of “bad water” and a close up of sand-encrusted salt chunks.

High altitude running always feels edgier to me, more focused somehow. Maybe it’s because my lungs are on fire and if I trip and fall, I may just keep falling for a while. I did a solo run up few nicely bunched 14ers yesterday, here in Colorado. Democrat, Cameron and Lincoln. I left late in the day so I had the mountains all to myself. I’m doing a #spartanup race in Breckinridge this weekend so this was a nice way to get my mind right. I also tried out a super lightweight pack from #raidlight. Very well designed. Good times! #englerunningman #runningsober #runhappy #trailrunner #hokaoneone #runforfun #outdoorfitness #ultratraining #dirtbagrunners #aroo #ocrtraining #nomeatathlete #optoutside #hikingadventures #wedorecover #ultrarunner #marathoner #ultramarathon #runrunrun #runningtime #runitfast #trailrunner #instarunners #runalways #maratona #runshots #runningmotivation #runsteepgethigh

So here’s a #tbt story I’ve never publicly shared before. In 2015, I won my first big race, Fat Dog 70 mile, although I didn’t know it until half an hour after the race ended. But there was a whole lot more to that story than anyone knew. 👉Swipe.

5 weeks before that, I was in a really bad car accident. I was rear-ended by a large truck going 100km an hour on the highway, in a crash that sent me to the hospital in a blaze of sirens. One minute I was on my way to work like every other day, and the next I was being told I might have broken my neck. Not awesome.
I kept telling the paramedics that this was terribly inconvenient timing as I had a big race coming up, but they seemed more concerned about my neck than my race. Luckily all the tests came back fine, but I ended up with such severe whiplash that for 3 weeks I couldn’t move my neck at all, let alone think of running. Cue the world’s longest taper, and I spent those long 5 weeks trying desperately to regain mobility so that I could run again. When I toed the line at FD after not running a single step since the accident, all I felt was gratitude for being there... and I am 100% convinced that is why I had such a good race. I gave zero fucks about how I did — I was just so damn proud that I was there at all. I high-fived everyone, and smiled the whole freaking way. Crossing that finish line (never mind finding out I’d won) was the absolute epitome of the runner’s high.

What I’ve taken from that experience:

1) we actually perform better when our hearts and motivation are in the right place.
2) Give less fucks about results, and more about experiences.

3) Refuse to give voice to the excuses. I focused on being happy I was there at all, rather than being frustrated at the fact my neck hurt so much. I kept telling myself that at least this way I wouldn’t be thinking about how much my legs and feet hurt.

4) Smile. Being able to run these crazy distances is a gift. Enjoy it.

Whatever your A race this summer or in life is, do it with less fucks and more glee, and I promise you’ll find it a more rewarding experience. 😚

That’s right, I mentioned three things to give away yesterday. The first two items were posted yesterday. Go check them out if you haven’t yet. If you follow me you may know what’s coming....Anyone care to hazard a guess? Yep you got it. An @orangemud pack. And not just any pack, but the boss man @jcsprag ‘s favorite. The 2L gear vest (not shown) a slimmed down version of the endurance pack and a sweet choice for almost any run. What would you do first with a new pack? Comment here to enter or hit me up at Marquette! It’s race weekend everyone! Come find me. Following me on IG isn’t required but it’s appreciated 😉 #whereswaldo #orangemud #trailrunner #running #dirtbagrunners #justrun #domore #justdoyou #runalways

If you don’t take a photo of you standing on the trail with your back to the camera looking all artsy and shit, do you even have a race this weekend?!?

2 more sleeps until Marquette 50k and last big run before Superior 100 in 22 days!! Who else is toeing the line at #Marquette50k?

And best of luck to everyone running @squamish50 this weekend!! A little bummed I won’t be there this year, but I got big fish to fry coming up with my 100 miler. I hope the smoke clears and you have great weather! And if you’re doing the 50/50, be smart on Saturday, and just get your ass to the start line on Sunday! Get to the first aid station and you will most likely finish!

Getting started before the sun comes up consistently is starting to pay off. I still can’t run like I once could but I’m getting closer every day. Hip is slowly getting stronger. Ready to see how it does for six hours of Jackrabbit Jubilee Saturday.

Hey St. John’s, check out our latest article! It is 5 things you need to do in #yyt before summer ends. #5 is hike on the @eastcoasttrail ☀️🌊 #LinkInBio #twowildtides

There is an account titled @youdidnotsleepthere which calls out people for placing their tents in impossibly perfect spots just to take a photo. I feel like our campsite for Days 1 and 2 was so perfect it would end up on their page, but we really did sleep here, pinky swear 🌄🏕️ What is a little different about the backcountry in Glacier National Park than other National Parks I have been to is that there are very specific campsites that you have to use, and there aren’t very many of them either. For example for this backcountry campground at Red Eagle Lake there were only 4 sites with a max of 4 people per site (so we reserved 2 sites since we had 5 people). Having specific limited sites cuts down on the impact of people in the backcountry and also limits the number of people that can go into the backcountry (further limiting the impact of people on nature). It made it difficult to put together an itinerary and secure sites, but it was pretty nice to not feel like the backcountry was overwhelmed like it can in other parks #glaciernationalpark #glaciernps #ididsleephere #backcountry

The start of the @transrockiesrun_official stage 3!

When life seems hard, remember that time you spent 4+ hours above 13k feet traversing ridges and got horrible altitude sickness and then had to somehow find your way down a neverending gully from hell and then march through a swamp of willows and broken dreams....all by choice 😂 #SalomonSquad #TimeToPlay 📷: @krittylevorson
