It's been over a month since I ended the year at the @hamiltonmarathon. As I collect my final awards from the @subarurunning Series & @outrace.ca Series I am looking back at the year filled with success and failures.
From #running personal bests from 5 km, 10 km, all the way to the 100 km distance and running my first 100 mile race. Along with some of these PB's comes with podium finishes! Such as coming in second at the Sulpher Springs 100 km Trail Race, placing 2nd at the @conquerthecanuck 92 km stage race, and coming in 3rd at the Haliburton Forest 100 Mile Trail Race. 🔥 Even placing third at the competitive Jerry's Peachbud 10 km road race and of course running a @bostonmarathon qualifying time at the Hamilton Marathon. 🏃
However; with success comes with some failures along the way. I enjoy running alot and racing alot however; it brought me down during some big moments like at @mudcatmarathon where I burned out during the second half of the course. Along with being over worked going into the Sticks n' Stones 50 km Trail Race and burning out early only to suffer for most of the race.
To be a successful #runner it's great to experience what these moments are like. What winning and losing feels like. Ive grown from just running races for the heck of collecting medals to wanting to be competitive and to make a mark in the #ultramarathon world. 🌎 2017 has been fun but 2018 will be interesting! 💯🏆 #RunnersOfInstagram#FurtherFasterStronger#RunningMotivation#Marathon#MarathonTraining#SeenOnMyRun#TrailRunning#InstaRunners#CrossCountry#Instarunners#LoveRunning#RunnerLife#RunningCommunity#RunningShoes#RunItFast
2015 vs 2017 this has been a 6 year journey a lot of ups and downs thinking about giving up bc I wasn’t seeing results but I came out winning!!! All I wanna say is never fucking give up in whatever you do bc in the end your doing it for a reason... your mind has a lock on it the stuff that make people give up is when they want it easy...But in reality you shouldn’t want nothing easy bc when you want is easy then your going too have that mindset of wanting EVERYTHING EASY and thats where you are going to fail!!! Take charge Grind for that shit 🔥
