We are inspired by @run_ben_run ‘s ambitious goal setting and getting things done👍🏻 Keep up your spectacular journey, Huck is stoked to be a part of your adventure 👏🏻💦🍓🇦🇺
With @ultratrailaustralia approaching fast, this view may be familiar to some along Narrowneck plateau, hope all your preparations are going well for 22km,50km and 100km events. Set to be another epic event this year. See you at the start line. Any @dirtbagrunners around in Australia in May, hit me up.
Out on the trails. The weather is amazing! Unfortunately there is a lot of congestion on course so it's very slow going so far. 19kms is 3:55! Oh well, at least the views are breathtaking. Meet lots of nice people too #uta50#ultratrailaustralia#ultramarathon#50km

Survived the UTA50 today.
Didn't feel great all day for some reason. Some days are good, some not so good, but at times you just need to make the most of the situation at hand.
Rolled an ankle 5km in, fell off a small cliff, slipped down a ladder.
Really happy I stuck it out and dug deep to get it done.
Thanks to my awesome support crew.
Finished 15th overall 4hrs 43mins. Glad it is over.
Looking forward to a rest over the next few weeks
When you have run 48km, have 2km to go and all you can think is "I hope I get home in time so the kids don't go to bed too late" 😳
Running the UTA in the Blue Mountains last May was seriously one of the best experiences of my life - and now I finally have a photo from that finishing line with my three little people by my side, and my beautiful hubby at the finish line ❤️
