Running is fun (mostly).
Sport is fun (mostly).
Mud is awesome.
Beards are awesome.
Mud, beards, and the limits of human endurance
Do you know when you’re a kid and your mum says “Stay out of the puddles!” or “Don’t get your clothes dirty!”? Well, that’s why I trail run. The Muddy Masochist is my beardy adventure into the world of endurance sport.
This blog is my journey through sport, through races, through running in other countries, through my gear.
Getting muddy, getting cold, getting tired, getting hurt, and the euphoric high that allows me to function in that state.
That Was Then. This Is Now
Running, travel and the limits of my own endurance. I still love getting muddy and splashing about in puddles but 2018 is about pushing my limits beyond the max, into the ultra.
Trying to answer the question “why?!” by doing. Showing what it is that compels me to run and what I see and experience that makes all those long hours on my feet worth it.
Follow me through 2018 as I tackle the 6 hour run at Princes Park, Run Larapinta (80k over 4 days) and Surf Coast Century (solo 100K).
