Females these days are fiercely independent, confident and more than capable to survive (& thrive) in the wildness alone.
A course as brutal as it was beautiful this race still has me suffering a slight case of PTSD when exposed to the terrain which saw me scramble, hike, run, walk and hallucinate my way through for 47 hours.
When I travel locally, interstate or overseas I do my research when it comes to finding cafes and restaurants that are going to feed me well and most importantly feed me quality plant-based vegan fare.
Trust is your body armour, your new-found persona and something that sets you apart from those around you.
I definitely suffered in this race more than the heat and humid adapted locals but my mindset helped me overcome the difficulty of what I could not control.

I’m not unique or different to you. In fact, I am just like you. I just decided one day to make a change just like you are going to do one day.
I feel we tend to over complicate the foods we eat; think about your top 20 foods and then figure out ways to incorporate these into quick and easy meals.
I wasn’t sick. I didn’t have a cold nor did I have a hamstring issue that two days before the race made me book a last-minute appointment with a physio who I was hoping was going to tell me everything was OK.
During the course of the race be present in the activity; the more connected you are to your running, the longer you’ll be able to keep running.
