Kabuki Race Report - This Race Was Personal

Kabuki’s story gave me goose bumps - powerful determination


When I entered Race to the Stones, I wanted to see whether I could shorten the time it took me to complete my prior 100k from London to Brighton of 18:56 where the emphasis would be switching from walking with some running to running with some walking. I trained, I planned and I quietly…

It’s no problem to run 50km with crew like this. Massive shout out to @fehrtrade for pacing me through the Hackney Half in serious heat and @cwschnohr for inspiration. And #cheerdemcrew are the shizz - big ups! #runhackney #rtts100 #ultratraining #rundemcrew #running

Run commute kit extraordinaire. Never thought I’d be using an ultra vest pack as a purse on my lunch break. #hereweare #rtts100 #runcommute #running #thenorthface #ultratraining

We can play šŸ€ Future Stars ā­ ‘93. Shooting hoops in the States in a sleepy Mid-west town, cementing my lucky number 13 for good. The ‘92 Dream Team have a lot to answer for. #basketball #wecanplay #futurestars #faveTshirt #nostalgia
