To get ready to record a podcast with Humans of Ultrarunning i was asked to share a memorable running moment. This is my moment:

“There is one race that stands out to me, a small local low key race in Australia called the Yurrebilla 56KM Ultra. I remember being 17 and flown over the country which at the time seemed like a movie-star thing to do.
I felt alot of pressure as they had paid for my flight and looked after me so well and it all caught up with me…about 5km into a 56km race.
At one point I called my dad and told him how I had let everyone down and that I wasn’t good at this. He was out running when I called and he sat down on a log and calmed me down. He said to me “they didn’t just invite you over for your athletic ability- they wanted to share your personality and nature with the community- they wanted YOU there.
Your result doesn’t define you or the feelings they will have towards you. Turn around and run back, find some people that you can share their journey with and be the ambassador you can be, stop being the competitor”.
I turned around and ended up running in some other struggling souls out there but felt the most strange sense of reward and satisfaction from helping others- maybe it wasn’t my day but I could make it our day.
When I returned home Dad told me how he was struggling up a hill when I called and he felt closer to me to be working hard on the trails too. Now whenever I race he goes for a run instead of sitting on the twitter feed as he feels like he is somewhat there with me.”

I can’t wait to share this full podcast with you, but in the meantime check out some of the other amazing voices 😘
