Yesterday’s run was hard... legs struggled and I had issues with hydration. Still, I hit my distance goal and saw some cool street art. Tried my first ice bath after the run and am now a convert. Legs feel way better than if I hadn’t climbed into into vat of icy pain for two minutes! #run #marathontraining #melbmara #runabetic #irunoninsulin #icebath #recovery

Longest training run this year. Building up the #melbmara Not long to go now... Hit the midway point and thought it would be a good time to scan my sensor and check where my blood sugar was. That deep valley you see, that’s 14 kilometres from home. Threw my nutrition plan out the window as I sucked down two @hucknutrition gels back to back. Waited five minutes, then turned back and made it home safe and sound. The post run sugar was 7.2, the 9 is post lasagna. ;) Running with type one diabetes is a challenge, but then again, so is running a marathon. Just add it to the list... PS, please ignore pre-run massive high. Left the house this morning with an empty insulin pen. Oops! #run #runabetic #irunoninsulin #marathontraining #type1diabetes #challengeaccepted

Today I ran the Run Melbourne half marathon. Happy to have run it, but a bit disappointed to have finished 8 minutes behind last year’s time. My training this year has not been nearly as consistent as last year. I have a few events coming up in the next few months, so my focus will be in rebuilding that consistency to get the results I want. On the plus side, I finished without injury which means I can turn around and really dive into it! Oh, and I still had my post race #bloodymary because shit, I still ran a half marathon. #runmelbourne2018 #halfmarathon #run #runabetic #type1athlete #irunoninsulin #rebuild #ontothenext #marathontraining

Five years ago today, I married the love of my life in front of our nearest and dearest. Then we all took the train during peak hour on a Friday afternoon to our reception. An amazing day, followed by an amazing life. I love you Anna, now more than ever. #anniversary #married #happy #bestfriend #love #fiveyears

Post run traditions are very important. Bloody Marys are a must have! Had a great experience at the MS Fun Run today. Thanks to everyone who helped me hit my modest fundraising goal and thanks to @annasaywell for meeting me at the finish line. :) #run #runabetic #msfunrun #irunoninsulin #type1athlete #bloodymary #10k @hucknutrition

Been a while since I’ve posted, well, anything really, but especially about running. I have finally realised that I need to get out of my head and back on the road. This bit of street art summed it up perfectly. Time to #hitthestreets #run #runner #runabetic #irunoninsulin #type1athlete #typeonerun #halfmarathontraining #goingtohurttomorrow #sauconyau #ride10
