Just like that the @worldmarathonchallenge777 is over. I finished day 7-Miami in 2:53:04-1st overall & an average time under 3 hours....today I even ran a negative split. I can’t even begin to explain how lucky I feel to have had this experience. πŸ™ to everyone at the WMC, the other athletes, crew, & all the family & friends that cheered us on. It is so incredible to watch everyone grow & discover what they are capable of. Also huge πŸ™ to the security person in Santiago that found my passport. That would have made things difficult πŸ˜‰. #marathon #relentless #running (Wed 6)

on day 6 of the @worldmarathonchallenge777 in Santiago, Chile I had some stomach issues & had absolutely no energy & just didn’t have things go right. One of cardinal rules of stage racing is don’t get sick 😷, fuel & show up ready to rumble. I didn’t do those things & I paid but got home 1st in about 3:04ish. Stoked to make another finish line & tomorrow we are going to party in Miami. (Tue 5)

26:57:37-10th place at hurt100 crazy awesome race, tough, muddy, technical, rooty, hilly, with incredible athletes. So stoked to get run with Sabrina Stanley Candice Burt @dirtdiva333 Jade & Nick & Nathan & Rob, to name a few. would say one of the hardest things I have done. The aid stations, volunteers & race team are second to none. Highly recommend!!! So happy to have fought back after taking a wrong few wrong turns & some bonus miles(my fault not race)...got to see ever single person in the race during the race πŸ˜‰ πŸ™ everyone for helping, cheering, feeing me & Erin for the coming to crew (Sun 20)

96.00 miles in Poland (PL) (runner profile)

Finished the super cool @ultralemkowyna 150k I think maybe 5th or 6th in a bit 19 hours. I had a bad stomach the entire day which meant I could not fuel with anything solid only liquids but it took me until 40k to figure that out and Imodium save my race. It didn’t the discomfort but allowed me to continue. It was really well organized, runnable but still had a bunch of climbing-over 5000 meters, terrific aid stations, and muddy πŸ˜€ πŸ™πŸ™ everyone for the support. Special thank you to Kris, Miki, (Sat 13)

It is exactly one week to the start of one of my favorite races ever the @ultragobi 400k(about 250 miles) in the Gobi Desert 🌡 of China πŸ‡¨πŸ‡³. You are required to self navigate, be self sufficient and it is non-stop. Last year I had an amazing experience and I cannot wait to test my limits again. I also met some of the most incredible people from the race organization to the other athletes and I am wishing everyone taking part again the best. I can’t make it this year but will definitely hope to be back the future.... We are almost at 13,000 miles! Go team! (Fri 21) / Total Miles 631.50 since 7/5/18
