"Let's face it... Ultra Running is hard"... Landie Greyling
Congratulations to our race hostess Landie on an awesome come back to international racing after the birth of baby Christopher!
#timetoexploreLet’s face it.. Ultra running is hard... especially if you haven’t done them for a long while and your list of long training runs is almost non-existent.

After a while, it becomes a battle of the mind only, especially if you’re so fatigued that every step, every kilometer becomes a battle between the trail and your body & mind. It’s then that you realize it hurts up to a point, but really doesn’t get much worse, more so once you get into that “zone & flow”. I had a really dark zone from 43- 48km @penyagolosatrails, but found my zen & the last 10km was a joyride all the way!!

So maybe now I am starting to get race fit again!??

I love how these challenges teach us so much about the human body & mind.

Thanks for all the support on the trail & online, it gives great pleasure to share this sensation with so many enthusiasts and supporters.

Onwards & upwards👊👊💃🇪🇸🎉🎊😎
