MOST RECENT

I had a few hours to kill before attending Bethany’s friend’s wedding in Seattle so I’ve decided to take advantage of an opportunity to continue my string of mountain runs of increasing difficulty, this time choosing Mailbox Peak. In heavy periodic rain, with over 4000 vertical feet on the ascent just in 2.5 miles via the old trail and 7.5 miles of descent via the new trail, infamous Mailbox Peak definitely lived up to it’s gnarly reputation. This 4800’ max peak with 4100’ elevation gain, 10 mile run in 2:30hr was so challenging yet extremely rewarding, I already can’t stop daydreaming about training harder and returning for improved running time soon. ⛰🏃🏻😍

Slowly recovering from World Champs last weekend. This snap was taken by @ferretman89 on the first climb. The course was changed due to weather but the first climb still followed the original course and it was awesome to see some of what Scottish trails have to offer. @skyrunning @altrarunning_nz @compressport_new_zealand #highlands

I'm only human
I'm only, I'm only
I'm only human, human
.
Maybe I'm foolish
Maybe I'm blind
Thinking I can see through this
And see what's behind
Got no way to prove it
So maybe I'm blind
But I'm only human after all
I'm only human after all
Don't put your blame on me
Don't put your blame on me
.
Take a look in the mirror
And what do you see ::)
Do you see it clearer
Or are you deceived
In what you believe
'Cause I'm only human after all
You're only human after all
Don't put the blame on me
Don't put your blame on me
.
Some people got the real problems
Some people out of luck
Some people think I can solve them
Lord heavens above
I'm only human after all
I'm only human after all
Don't put the blame on me
Don't put the blame on me
.
Isn't ask my opinion
Don't ask me to lie
Then beg…

Autumn is here 🍁🍂 #sunrise #newday

It’s nearly time to run again
🕺🏃‍♀️🕺🏃‍♀️🕺🏃‍♀️🕺🏃‍♀️🕺🏃‍♀️🕺🏃‍♀️🕺🏃‍♀️
.
The foot is weight-bearing and I can’t wait to get out there again!
Unfortunately however, I have decided to not line up at @thegoldenultra this weekend to not break myself straight again.
I’m sure my coaches @run.namaste.eat appreciate me having my sensible 🎩 on for once 😜.
.
Cheering duties it is instead 📣
Go Bow Valley runners and @jj.bakes on your first ultra!

“Letting go helps us to to live in a more peaceful state of mind and helps restore our balance. It allows others to be responsible for themselves and for us to take our hands off situations that do not belong to us. This frees us from unnecessary stress.” Melody Beattie
This quote along with #padangustasana practice has definitely resonated for me this week as I have nurtured myself back to good health with lots of self care ☺️.

I tend to say quite often "this was the best run/climb ever!". But.. this was the best run ever again! -
Moraine lake to Lake Louise via Sentinel Pass, Paradise Valley and Saddleback today with @jandule_j .Up to 20 cm of fresh snow, larches and finally wonderfull fall day. Hope we will get more days like this to finnish of the season with more climbs, runs, rides and beer with friends in the next few weeks!

Bom... as vezes você não curte o som do cara, mas quando a letra faz todo sentido pra você ! Aí não tem jeito !! .
Essa foto📷aí de cima foi dos 24km da 3° e última etapa do @itabiritotrailrun...um Circuito de Trail Run, bem organizado que acontece próximo a Belo Horizonte....
.
A minha alegria, contrasta com o desânimo ao final da prova. Desanimado e preocupado com um dos minhas piores provas até agora em corridas. A prova não encaixou e logo na largada, vi que não seria um dos meus melhores dias...
.
Por outro lado, foi sinal de alerta⚠️!! Preciso mudar !!

[Please at least consider the last paragraph even if you dont choose to read the rest]

Purpose is a difference maker. It's an everyday difference maker. Sometimes, even the minute to minute difference maker.
Purpose enables and encourages. Purpose gives perspective and peace. In this case, purpose was the difference between even toeing the start line and winning the race. It was the divide between trudging and trusting. Even though I felt inadequately prepared, my purpose for running bridged the gap between that and my choice to give it what I had on that day. What resulted was a joyous few hours in the mountains, competing, exploring, and learning a lot about the capacity I've been created with. Not to say that there weren't many challenges along the way, but purpose kept me going.

My main purpose, as many of you know, is the God who has saved me and gives me purpose (even with "silly" things like running). For this race in particular, though, a young man who is in the fight against cancer was my purpose. His strength and attitude toward this battle pulled me from the first step the last of this race. If my effort gives him even an ounce of continued courage, it was well worth it. .

. ****On September 29, there is an event called Race for Chase. You have the opportunity to support and run for this same young man. If you're not interested in the run, maybe a monetary gift, donation of time during the event, or an encouraging note is something that you could offer. Either way, if you'd like more information (even if you don't live in Estes) please contact me. 📸: @joepylephotography

Back to the grind last week, following behind @fishymattolsen ‘s handy work, and happy to be back with this turkey, but... slightly missing doing stuff like this in other countries just a few weeks ago. #boone #nanaimo #vanisle #cedar #boxerdogs #iceland #hengillultra #boxerdog #boxersofinstagram #construction #trailrunning #ultrarunning #mountainrunning

"It's the little details that are vital. Little things make big things happen." -John Wooden Today was technic day. Usually one day a week I spend a workout focusing on nothing but the little things, the little details that make the big difference. .
.
Whether it's my running technique, lifting technique or as for today trekking pole technique. Yes there is a technique for using trekking Poles! .
.
I believe it is good to spend some time focusing on how you use them when you're running up a hill, power hiking up, running down the hill and taking them apart then putting in your running pack. .
.

I personally love using trekking Poles and becoming efficient with them can make a big difference! .
.
-FYI, In this picture I am not using my trekking poles "efficiently".....just enjoying my time on Mount Aire! ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
