A beautiful summers day for my first run back home 🥴The pet lamb may have eaten all my roses I was growing for a wedding cake 🤬but at least he left my fox gloves alone 😊( The Demonic creature he probably knows they would have killed him 👿😬)

For all the mascara I’ve cried down my surgeon’s lovely crisp white shirts over the years , I’m sorry😊 But I’m guessing from your message it’s all washed out 😁Let’s hope the next lot does. Thank you Mr B for everything . Without you my last 6 weeks would never have happened ( see you soon ) ❤️❤️❤️.

Just received this pic taken after my 1/2 in New Hampshire . This beautiful lady Claudie whom I meet and stayed with through Airbnb, not only got up and made my breakfast, drove me to the race at some ungodly hour on a freezing cold wet miserable morning. Only to return to watch me cross the finish line and gave me the warmest hug. Then the hot bath and apple cider vinegar. I miss my mum everyday but these amazing people that have come into my life make things that little easier. I cannot believe how lucky I was to meet the people I met and make the friends I made. (The beer was really good to )😊 Thank you Claudie ❤️❤️❤️

So I’ve made it as far as Christchurch . It’s these braided river beds that rekindled my love of distance running and where I started my mountain biking .(another 7 hours and I will be home 😳 )I needed a lot of meds to make the flight, nearly missed it. Held the plane up whilst they searched the airport for me . I didn’t hear the boarding call to busy talking ,oh and I was in a bar how surprising 😊adding to the rather emotional 24 hours I have just got my phone going to receive the most amazing message from my surgeon. I’m not so sure he will be quite so happy when he sees me but the sense of achievement after so much pain and those really shitty surgeries is finally sinking in. To have that time away, and to run was a dream of mine.I hope my next one comes true. I’ll be blowing on every dandelion until it does😄❤️. #believeinyourself#liveyourlife#runner#tha#thr#recovery#marathon#❤️❤️❤️

Watching my last sunset over this beautiful beach makes me really sad. My 6 weeks is over and I’m not ready to go home ☹️. I have received so many messages, some people who’s lives are so busy that take the time out to contact me, it has been overwhelming. I’m not amazing or inspirational, just determined and love to beat the odds.Thank you all for the amazing support! if anyone has been amazing and inspirational it’s YOU ALL!! ❤️❤️❤️

My Last Friday night in North America😢I have loved my time here. From LA - Boston up to New Hampshire back to Boston to Denver -Aspen - Seattle - Vancouver and back to LA it’s been one hell of a ride 🤣 I’ve made some amazing friends, missed one connection and drunk more than I’ve eaten ( no surprises there 😊) Have run my heart out stuffed my other hip and developed a whole new respect for coffee and gummy bears oh and Mac n’ Cheese 😃March will not come quickly enough 😁

Back to LA for my last 5 days with my family wow mixed emotions!!! So looking forward to seeing them but sad my adventure is coming to its end. From the bitter sweet high of Vancouver to the mad chaos of losing myself all the bloody time in Boston. I have seen some things that really questioned my faith in man kind. We live in a complicated world and so many can’t find a place in it . I wasn’t prepared for it or the impact that had on me. The kindness of strangers that turned into friendship or their disbelief and laughter at my stupidity . The kindness and generosity of my friends, reconnecting the fun and laughter we enjoyed.My running whilst controversial has been so rewarding and the medals are a bit cute. I pushed my hip to its limit and blew the other one out in the process 😫I am exhausted , in agony and most definitely look like something out of the walking dead . I don’t regret one moment but wish I had more time to keep exploring. I love the geography the architecture and the skies of North America. It’s given me so much happiness , sadness , tears and a crazy amount of laughter . My last 5 days are definitely rest time 🥴🤕😊❤️❤️❤️

This city brought me the most pleasure and the most pain, an Eagle medal and salted caramel donuts. So sad to be leaving Vancouver she is one beautiful city ❤️

So I come here to Vancouver with an unreasonable goal of getting in the top 10 . It was a dream but with my hips the reality was highly unlikely.These are the official results just posted . I got 9th in my class . My stupidity has paid off. To all of you still suffering from Fai / Labral tears / hip replacements there is a rainbow you just have to find it ❤️
