Just finished the Blackfoot 80km ultra marathon πŸŽ‰πŸƒπŸΌβ€β™€οΈπŸ™ŒπŸΌfirst solo ultra in the books βœ… I've been training like a mad woman and I remember when 10km was insurmountable to me a few years ago. FYI - @conorbfurey dumped water on his head mid race and his phone bit the dust ... so his famous (πŸ™„) Instagram stories were lacking. Also congrats to my friend Cassandra for bringing home top female in the 80km πŸ†#blackfootultra #ultramarathon #ididntneedmytoenailsanyway #yeg

Our 50km trail run. The heat got the best of me today but that's ok!
Thanks for the photo mom & Mark! .

Blackfoot Ultra 50k today. Done and done. Had the pleasure of having fellow November Project Canada tribe member Seumas Garland run with me for the first 25k as he was out for a training run. Great race, hot day, glad it's done. #novemberprojectcanada #novemberproject #blackfootultra #fasttrax

Had a great time yesterday running my first 50miler. This picture was taken at 30km. At that point I was feeling super strong, even still at 55km, however between 55km and 80km the heat and distance took their toll and my pace slowed.
Sadly, My iPhone was a casualty of the race, r.i.p.

@whereisjayden blasting out a loop with me at #blackfootultra today. Summer is coming! #altrarunning #embracethespace

First trail race of 2017 in the bag. Amazing day, weather was so hot, dare I say too hot for 50km in the sun but was a beautiful run. A few struggles along the way but crossed the finish line!! #blackfootultra #trailrunning

Ok. Last post before I "toe" the start line at tomorrow's #blackfootultra . I was hoping I could run in my
#lunasandals and it's looks like conditions will allow for it. Figured I would mess with people and actually the little #luna logos look good in my origens sandals (new tradition maybe??). Here's to pushing our limits. #runningisbeautiful #lunasandals #lunatics #blackfootultra #roadtoblackfootultra #igotprettytoes #noblacktoesintheseshoes #freeyourdogs

My ideal Mothers Day is acting like I'm not a mother. I'm pretty sure I'm a horrible person for that. So my day consisted of sleeping in, eating a blizzard cake, and killing my legs for 3 hours (and then crying all the way home in pain). Bonus: I didn't have to poop at all during it, so that was a Christmas miracle! Anyways, I saw this and thought it was cool. #blackfoot #blackfootultra #cookinglakeblackfoot

Ran the Blackfoot Ultra 50k yesterday and managed to exceed even my own expectations! 4:44 PR for the distance. thanks to @runproctor for a great day! #blackfootultra #ultrarunning @healdsburgrunningcompany

The ONLY mug I will drink from at home for the last 3 years. I should maybe wash it more... πŸ˜“

I reeeeally want to do an ultra again soon here. Watching the feeds on Sinister7 last weekend had me wishing I was back there suffering like a maniac... Any takers??? 60km+ and mountain only!!!! I wanna do it WITH someone - side by side solo. I have suffered far too many kms alone in the deep dark woods! And I LOVE it, but I think I'm over the alone thing... Do it! Do it! It'll be fun she says... πŸ˜‚

Back on road after last Saturday's #blackfootultra #50km legs started out a little heavy but felt good by the end. Tested out the new Reebok Harmony road runners. They are really nice. The new float ride cushioning is a huge improvement! #running #runner #reebok #reebokrunning #floatride #harmonyroad #adidas #adidasrunning #tattooedrunner #tattooedathlete #ultrarunner #ultrarunning #ultratraining #yeg #yegrunner

Back in the gym for the first time since the #blackfootultra this past Saturday. Feeling pretty good. Legs are still a little heavy but I'm hoping to be back on trails Friday. #fitness #fitfam #health #adidas #adidastraining #adidasrunning #runner #ultrarunner #running #ultrarunning #tattooedathlete #tattooedrunner #yeg

Start of the 50km race at Blackfoot Ultra on Saturday. Gorgeous day. Blackfoot Ultra is such a local gem. Awesome race. (pic by Brittney Tancowny) #ultrarunning #blackfootultra #zerolimits #fuelyourgoals

2nd ultra in the books for 2017, and it comes with a similar result as the 1st. Any delusions I had about being a 'heat' runner have been clearly dispelled. At the Canyons in April I fought the heat for 80k. Unable to take in calories or fluids made for a messy day and a painful two days of recovery. At BFU I didn't recognize the same thing was happening until it was too late. I walked the majority of the last 15k, surviving on (warm) pop (ugh) for the last 30k (the only thing my body would accept).
Stubbornly crossed the finish line in both events, but if I don't figure this heat stuff out I might need to find a different challenge. I'm not liking how familiar I'm getting with the taste of my stomach πŸ€•

A jazzy little weekend in the sun with @mountainrnnr. Raced a fiddy, enjoyed samosas in the park and tested out our bike riding skills. Take away from the weekend; biking to and from a race sounds fun in theory, not so much in practise 😊 #blackfootultra #bfu #50miler #s7training #sunnydays #partnersthatplaytogetherstaytogether #moveyourbody

"Community" ...your friend comes out to crew you after a really long and trying week. Her day consists of waiting around for 3 hours at a time so she can give you aid as quickly as possible to get you back onto the course.
...another friend comes over after watching you come into the aid station to offer you words of encouragement and see if she can help...and combined with another friend who between them have run more of these races than I can imagine they help fix the blister you have been running with for 50k.
...another friend is out there taking pictures and cheering people on and offering support despite finding out only days earlier she couldn't run her first ultra because of an injury.

Thanks alot for all your help yesterday! πŸ’›πŸ’›πŸ’› #blackfootultra #ultrarunning

#BlackfootUltra snack station yesterday afternoon. After things got bad and then better but before things got worse. We may not run another ultra together πŸ˜‚ Thanks for playing paparazzi @iron_out_the_creases

Recovering from your first trail ultra looks like this:
1. Deck time with a good book (and @rockymountainsoapco all natural sunscreen, of course). 2. A can of your favourite summer wheat ale.
3. Admiring the inaugural 2017 trail tan lines you acquired during the aforementioned race.
Perfect-o.
