This part of the race was fun 😜! I did the 36km Magalisberg Challenge today, there was a split in the route at some point where the 50km runners carried on running on the top of the mountain and the 36km runners descend the mountain. There was meant to be a marshal here pointing people in the right direction but he was having a beer with his mates (I hope it was delicious 😜 he might of just been hiding in a bush but having a beer sounds better) well anyway not knowing where the split was I followed the 50km runners along with the front half of the 36km field. I started to lose my shit slightly as I hobbled over rocks, stacked it twice and then started to get circled by vultures...maybe my sweaty state put them off actually trying to nibble me 🤣! After running for 36km a car pulls up beside me with the race director and two other runners in it to tell me I had gone the wrong way and to hop in the car. I had run out of water at this point so I did! The race director then dropped us 1km from the end to run in to the finish as he went back to collect more lost runners. I crossed the finish line to get told I was 1st lady which felt strange as I wasn’t really because I went the wrong way but the organisers said it was their fault and I covered the right distance so it was fine...not entirely sure I agree with that but hay ho it is what it is! And at least I didn’t fall into the water as I ran over the floating bridge which was pretty fun to run across! #runfastorsink
What is it about nature than makes it such a necessity when you discover the magic of it? Every corner, every turn feels like a scene from a movie- and all of it is completely at our disposal! I love our National Parks and hope everyone gets a chance to see them! #nationalparks#skymileslife
A fun family afternoon adventure in sunny Edinburgh from Seven Acre Park, to the Braids and then down to Blackford Glen.
Edinburgh is full of beautiful outdoor walks and trails and the Hermitage of Braid and Blackford Hill Local Nature Reserve is something else.
We climbers, boulderers, every kind of exotic dog breed being walked, families walking, couples chilling and lots of happy kids playing the burn. I'm glad to say there was wildlife too.
Learn to run in different environments, because thats what life is about.

Arriving on the plateau opened our sight, shortened our breath. Peaks easily outreach 5000m. above sea level, our feet above 4200m. China, Pakistan and Tajikistan are close, only a few kilometers through adjacent valleys. One can cross the frozen lake by foot until the end of April, summer camps left empty on the other side. Calm feeling of enclosure, time frozen as movements are. People roam around their camps with livestock, pay visit to others on known trails. Men however move down to the lowlands, when the river is still frozen, easing travel through otherwise high passes. In turn, only a few venture from the lowlands when weather allows, trading and offering their services as herders. #afghanistan#pamir#wakhan#mountains#snow#plateau#freeze#time#temporality#ice#trails#borders
Language is powerful: “I have to” vs. “ I want to” 🤔
I got this friendly reminder from a good friend of mine, and I have to say it’s been extremely helpful. ❤️
Saying “I have to” can make you feel like you’re forcing yourself to have the energy to do something. Whereas saying “I want to” comes from energy deep down inside that is only further fueled by doing the act itself. .
When motivation is more internal, we tend to feel more invigorated and as a result, produce better work. .
So whether it’s going for a run or completing a project at work; have intent with your language and you may just find yourself smiling a lot more. ❤️😊
