3 weeks! It took me 3 weeks after crossing that finish line in Chamonix to put my running gear back on and to go back out running the mountains. 3 weeks of complete break from running. TDS surely took its toll on me, both physically and mentally. 3 weeks for my knees to be pain free, thanks @bergenbodywork for the recovery. 3 weeks to recover mentally and find space for running again. I took the time to focus on other important things in life and I now feel eager to run the trails again. I surely needed that break to find new challenges for 2019. But before 2019 there is a ski season, and I am really looking forward to it!
Simple Hydration Run Hero Series #19
This photo series is about you (our followers). Why you? Easy, you decided to tag and follow us on social media. It may have been during this past week or anytime over the last 7 years. You shared your training, apparel choices, new shoes, Garmin issues, expo goodies, gastrointestinal issues, training plans, race reports (good and bad) and of course when you set PRs or qualified for the Boston Marathon. You love the running community as much as we do. You love that feeling of crushing that run, hitting those intervals, attacking those hills, flying down mountains and crossing that finish line. You feel like a super hero in that moment. So we reached out to some of our followers and Run Team members and asked them to shoot a photo in a heroic pose. We hope you enjoy this series.
Runner: Ian Lye
Ian is coming off the race of his life. He spent 5 years running on trails and up and down mountains to prepare for what the Ultra Trail du Mont Blanc (UTMB) might throw at him. Despite very tough conditions in this year’s race he completed his first 100 miler in 37 hours and 44 minutes. As a Simple Hydration Run Team member it’s been great to follow his training these past few years and then see him fulfill his dream.
Do you want to take part? If you would like to be part of this series then feel free to take a photo of yourself with a Simple Hydration Bottle in a heroic pose and send it to us for consideration. Or you can shoot your own with the tag #runhero and #runsimple.

“I was drawn to the Elevon for the sleek upper, but really enjoyed how comfortable and cushioned it was while running.” - @lacheniare. Our lightest cushion knows no limits. By: @hokaoneone
Chamonix, nous arrivons !
De nombreuses surprises à venir sur le Salon de l'Utra Trail pour l'@utmbmontblanc ;)
Venez nous rendre visite... un invité tout particulier pourrait bien être là... ;) @guenergylabs By: @guenergy_fr
Good luck to all those running up and down mountains today - especially those braving the wind and rain in the @mt_snowdon_ultra! Here’s one of the team meandering down one of South Wales’ finest this morning after a dawn ascent! 🏃🏽♀️🏃🏾♂️⛰🏃🏾♂️🏃🏽♀️
L'UTMB c'était il y a déjà une semaine. Cette photo a l'arrivée reflète parfaitement l'ensemble de la course. L'enthousiasme, l'énergie, le moteur à gauche, et à droite, ben euh... Hahah. À droite, celui qui a besoin de prendre sa retraite 😅

We are so incredibly inspired by our #WednesdayWarrior, Sophie Power! This picture speaks for itself and to any mother, woman, athlete, or warrior of life. We will look to this picture anytime we need encouragement and strength! Thank you @ultra_sophie for sharing this with the world! 💖💪
#regram@Strava "A truly incredible image that tells a better story than we ever could - a story of motherhood, endurance and the strength of the human body. Captured by our photographer, @alexis_berg, during the 105 mile @utmbmontblanc race, British ultra runner Sophie Power breastfeeds her 3 month old baby, Cormac. @ultra_sophie we applaud you. We applaud your endurance, your courage and your defiance of those who told you you couldn't. You're a true inspiration."
Sophie responded with this beautiful message "This isn't a story about me. It's a story about the daily struggle of being a new Mum. A story about the need to nurture our babies the best we can. And the importance to prioritise our physical and mental health - to be ourselves as well as be a mother. I have been overwhelmed by the positivity and supportive messages. They are for all mothers for we are all in this together #motherhood".
