Find a boo that brings out the best in you 💘 ...and someone you can force to sprint laps, climb cliffs, run miles, and summit mountains...and they’ll still want to hang out with you 😅😂 #happyvalentinesday

Taking a breather before the next couple of months of work. Less than 7 weeks till @thespeedproject , less than 4 weeks till 5,000m Nationals, and less than 1 week till 10,000m Nationals 😅 Loads of people think I’m ‘lucky’ I love running. And I do. But it doesn’t mean it’s easy. Some days it’s horrible and painful and the worst thing on earth. I get it. But what running has taught me about myself and about life is why I believe everyone should put one foot in front of the other 🙏🏼 ⚡️ #alwaysonmysh** #mindovermiles #onestep #nikerunning #justdoit

Competition. It can either make you or break you. It could build you up or pull you down. It can force you to progress or unfortunately regress. It can create self confidence or it can cause self doubt. But if you strip away your competitors and focus on your own journey, the real competition comes down to yourself. How much you’re willing to give, how much you’re willing to learn, how far you’re willing to go to be better than YOU were yesterday. I used to use my competitors as my motivation but now I use myself. My journey as an athlete and my love for this sport is what pushes me to compete within myself on how content I am with life. I compete against others because it makes me find out more about myself. 💫⚡️ #justdoit #nikerunning #youcompetewithyou #run 📸: @shanegrannell

Lost in nature 🌿 I’ve never run to ‘lose weight’ or worked out to ‘get skinny’, it has always been about doing it because I just simply love the way it makes me feel. Focusing my attention on the psychological benefits of running has made me fall in love with running and want to continue to do it for the rest of my life. If it was about body image then running could of become just a short term solution to what could be a long term issue. Running gives you respect for your body, no matter what it looks like. Run for the right reasons, and you’ll never look back. ⚡️📸: @mattqueree #milesforyourmind #onestep #mentalhealthrun

Back in the city and back on the roads. Planning my next few months of racing and building toward @thespeedproject with @tempojournal ⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️ If you followed along last year, you’ll know this is a hell of a race. 550km across the desert in Death Valley ☠️. We have a 🔥 team of badass girls. Can’t wait to be rolling out KMs with them! 🙌🏻 #TSP19 #TSP #tempojournal #teamtempo

Back in the big smoke after the raddest running and relaxing road trip around NZ. If you need some recommendations of some beautiful places to run HMU. This week I did Wanaka -> Arthur’s Pass -> Old Ghost Road -> Abel Tasman -> Queen Charlotte Sounds -> Huka Falls ⚡️🙌🏻 Highly recommended to explore this country with @madcampersnz 🚐 and on foot 🏃🏻‍♂️🏃🏼‍♀️ #newzealand #mykindaholiday #running #madcampersnz

Tourist in my own back yard ⛺️🌲 #newzealand #roadie #madcampersnz

Finish line feels after running to the moon and back. 🌚 Thanks @redbullnz for putting on an epic event. Couldn’t have asked for a better location to tackle the crazy ascent. Mountain running is so different to road running, but was stoked to finish within my goal time! And even managed to carry a @goproanz the entire way! 🙌🏻 Big ups to Red Bull for pushing me so far outside my comfort zone...something that I would recommend anyone to do. Thanks for all the support. ⛰⛰⛰ #redbulldefiance

Tomorrow we hit the mountain 🏔 Thanks for all the msgs of luck...I’m going to need it! 😂 This is going to be tough 🙃 Stay tuned. 🙌🏻 @redbullnz #redbulldefiance

All the gear and no idea...😂 touched down in Wanaka for the @redbulldefiance Skyline Traverse⚡️ Trail running is not my fortè and climbing mountains sounds both horrible and exhilarating at the same time, but I’m so excited to take on this challenge. I’ve never raced with a bag full of clothes, food, and water before. Definitely going to be interesting 🙃🌲⛰ @redbullnz #redbulldefiance

Set a challenge. Be mindful of your focus. Keep your attention on your intention. And chase down a goal. 🙌🏻⚡️ Helps to have someone by your side when the going gets tough. 💫 #hillshillshills #justdoit #nikerunning #redbulldefiance

To say I’m nervous is an understatement but super excited to be racing the Skyline Traverse at the Red Bull Defiance. Any trail runners out there have any tips for me? HMU. 🙏🏼😅 #anyhelpappreciated @redbullnz #redbulldefiance
