One of my favorite aspects of summer is running through water on trails!
Cooling off the feet and knowing the shoes will dry soon enough is a great bonus to warm summer runs!
It gives us both an energy boost.👌 I hope you find some puddles to splash through this weekend!
It's Friday and time for a steady pace run🤙🏻. . . Knocked out a slightly hilly 30km (18.64 miles) to finish off the working week😀. . . It's good to get these base building runs in, as they help maintain good aerobic fitness and get your body used to a steady rhythm. . . And I also just love to go out the door and run, so any reason is a good one😂🏃🏼👍🏻. . . It's approx 4 weeks until my next ultra race @ultrapaine in Patagonia⛰and I'm soooo excited to hit the trails down south in this amazing country🇨🇱. I gotta give a massive shout out to my #bestpartnerever@frangibar for supporting me, organising all the travel and accomodation, and taking extra special care of me🙈🔥😘. (I mean massages and cuddles people😂) I ❤️ U babe. . . Also huge thanks to the team @squadrun NZ for the training and support. And a big hug to @hokaoneone_nz and @briony_allsports for sorting out my awesome hoka speedgoat 2's 😘. And of course, Thanks @tailwindnutritionnz and @tailwindnutrition for my emergency nutrition package. And @cepsportsnz for my brightly coloured compression gear ❤️!!!. . . It's a team effort guys and I couldn't do it without you all backing me up👍🏻. . . So now it's coffee and food time and maybe a little nap if I get a chance😂. . . Love ya😘. . .
Wanna see your pictures posted in our account? Apply for a feature on worlderunners.com/feature (link in my bio: @worlderunners) #worlderunners | People often ask me "how do I get abs?", "what ab exercises do you do?", and to be honest I never actually do any abdominal specific or focused exercises (except for this photo 😜). No sit ups, no crunches 🙅 Just the odd plank here and there. My abs are the result of a combination of consistently good nutrition (key!!!) and a workout routine that involves a lot of movements with weight overhead, which causes me to have to constantly activate my core. I never do 'leg days' or 'back & bi's" days or target one area over another. My workouts are nearly always full body functional exercises and just that's what works for me. What gets you results in anything you're looking to achieve is consistency. Set a goal and then be consistent in doing what needs to be done to achieve it 👊👊(📷: @cassolholm) Follow @worlderunners for more.

Run It Fast - The Club continues to grow and attract runners of ALL levels from across the globe.
This year at the prestigious Badwater 135 we had 13 members of the 95 invited competing over the 135 mile course. Brutal conditions this year caused a record number of DNF's. However, Run It Fast members went a perfect 13-13 which is pretty remarkable and fortunate.
The same week we had 8 members compete in the Vol State 500K (314 miles) race from Missouri to Georgia. Again all 8 finished the VS meat grinder giving RIF an amazingly perfect 21-21 success rate at #Badwater135 and #VS500K.
Combined RIF attendance at Badwater when you include crews and pacers was close to 30 members.
Congrats to Chavet Breslin @ultrarunnerchic (pictured) on finishing her first Badwater 135. Last year she helped crew and pace RIF founder @joshuaholmes on a crew comprised of RIF members.
RIF is a club full of enablers and mutants that continue to do the impossible inspiring and helping each other along the way.
For more info and to join check out the link in our profile. We now have members in 46 states and 17 countries. #RunItFast

Follow @RunningTerritory for more. "There will come a time when you believe everything is finished. That will be the beginning." Just before I got sick I was supposed to start working in Amsterdam. I had worked so hard to get there, and the Universe snatched it away.
Today, I am flying to Amsterdam. To work. This is one of those circumstances that people unfamiliar with the law of large numbers would call a coincidence.
It's not. It's the sum of persistence. Of never ever giving in.
Today I am being my own superhero. I am writing my own life story.
