"Running isn't for everyone. It's about the sweat in your hair and the blisters on your feet. Its the frozen spit on your chin and the nausea in your gut. It's about throbbing calves and cramps at midnight that are strong enough to wake the dead. It's about getting out the door and running when the rest of the world is only dreaming about having the passion that you need to live each and every day with. It's about being on a lonely road and running like a champion even when there's not a single soul in sight to cheer you on. Running is all about having the desire to train and persevere until every fiber in your legs, mind, and heart is turned to steel. And when you've finally forged hard enough, you will have become the best runner you can be. And that's all that you can ask for."

Breakdown of my times for #redbulllionheart. My PB during training was 33min (up and down) comp environment pushed me to drop 2 minutes off my time. Came first in my heat, 3rd in quarter finals and 8th in semi finals which lands me at 8th place overall. My tactic was to split the course into 3 sections; jeep track, single track and summit. I ran very slow on the jeep track while all the other runners bunched up and gained a 30 to 50 metre lead. Having run the route so much I knew the lines well and picked the runners off on the single track, summit and descent. My error was that I had no legs left for the semi’s and placed 2 spots too low for finals. This is an epic event and have enjoyed the training process thoroughly. Up next @roofofafrica πŸ‘ŠπŸΌ thanks @redbullza @sethphitides @ryansandes for the race. #trailrunning #enduro #tablemountain #redbulllionheart #lionshead

Slight change of pace for me this weekend shooting the annual @redbullza Lion Heart. Amazing to see these runners do laps of this place, hopping and skipping like proper mountain goats and never putting a foot wrong 🐐

Awesome awsome day spent running up and down Lions head mountain 4 times! Spent the day trying to tame the lion, safe to say it tamed me. Stoked to have managed to grab 2nd place in the intermediate mens final.
A massive thank you to SA's trail legend @ryansandes who created and puts together this amazing race alongside @redbullza and @salomon_sa πŸ’ͺ🏼 lekker vibe.

After yesterdayβ€˜s off-day I decided to wake up my legs with a short & flat fartlek. I was able to log 9km in 36mins in the end of the day.

#redbulllionheart was just crazy!

It’s been a race that I wasn’t brave enough to enter until this year and was so happy to have just made it to the prologue.

Had only one spin on the Lion and set a new PR for myself. Mad respect to all who had to do it multiple times during the course of the heats.

No wonder why @redbullza sponsors it because you have to be a nutcase to fly down that mountain like we all did.
Big shoutout to @peterjmoses for crewing me in my heat. The man gave some inspirational words that just lit a fire in my belly πŸ”₯
