What’s the best way to end the running year? With a trail run with friends, costumes, Christmas carols and just a touch of crazy 😜 Running Mums were out in force this morning for the final Canberra running event for 2017 Tour de Ridges... we had mums in the 21k, 15k and 10k events and by all accounts everyone had a ball!! I ran the 15k with @tinkatutu and @racheys1 dressed as naughty elf, crazy elf and smiley elf... so much laughter, singing, cartwheels, jumpshots, chatting and fun that at the end it didn’t feel like I had even run!!!β€οΈπŸƒπŸΌβ€β™€οΈπŸŽ„ #runningmumsaustralia #rma #canberrainstarunners #werun #runningbuddies #wearecbr #lovecbr #canberra #mumswhorun #mumrunner #runlikeamother #seemerlag #jumpstagram #jumpshot #trailrunning #traillove #trailchix #running #mumsgonewild #elves #christmasrun #runnersofinstagram #instarunners #besties #happyplace #farrerridge #tourderidges #tutu #15k #lovetrails

The littlies and I attempted a 5kms double pram run this evening but, boy it was hot!! 31 degrees at 7pm... the extra 40 to 50kgs made it tough but we still had a ball πŸ˜„ and for the first time ever I ran in a crop so much cooler and I felt strong and just a little badass πŸ˜‰ thanks for the inspiration @nicbunyonrma and @bree_winchester to own it, embrace it and love it! πŸƒπŸΌβ€β™€οΈπŸ’—πŸ’ͺ🏼 #runningmumsaustralia #rma #mumrunner #inspiringwomenrunners #inspiringwomen #womensrunningcommunity #sunsouttumsout #embraceyourbody #bodybeautiful #runlikeamother #seemerlag #pramrunnersaustralia #pramrunning #bobironmanduallie #altrarunning #altraaustralia #zerolimits #wearecbr #lovetorun #werun #hot #summerrunning #runningbuddies #britaxaustralia #mumswhorun #strava #mumtum #bodyimagemovement #selflove #womensupportingwomen
Have been itching to get back on the trails since our return from 12 days cruising 🚒 but haven’t found the opportunity and am still recovering from a cold... but tonight was the perfect evening so once Willoughby was tucked up in bed (and dad was plonked on the lounge) my number 1 lady and I went for a πŸŒ… hike... and it was perfect! Oh my goodness it is so good to be home...

On the home stretch of our cruise yesterday was the best day so far... 4miles around the deck of the ship in the morning and then a hike up Mount Maunganui with these gremlins followed by a splash in the ocean finding starfish... now that is what I call holidaying... πŸš’πŸƒπŸΌβ€β™€οΈβ›°πŸπŸ’— #runningmumsaustralia #RMA #mumontour #mumlife #newzealand #mountmaunganui #cruise #sunprincess #running #hikeitbaby #adventuremamas #adventurekids #mumswhorun #holiday #irun #happyplace #hike #babywearing #noshopping #happy #maoriart
RUN LIKE A GIRL #runlikeagirlrma #likeagirllikeaboss You may have noticed me running in the company of a doll this week (and I don’t just mean my fellow RMA buddies πŸ˜‰) and with lipstick... This initiative was the brainchild of @senti_nelle to celebrate strong, inspiring females and today is the final day - International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women. The premise of the day is to raise awareness of the fact that women around the world are subject to rape, domestic violence and other forms of violence; furthermore, one of the aims of the day is to highlight that the scale and true nature of the issue is often hidden. Coinciding with White Ribbon Day here in Australia When I woke up this morning I was full of excuses not to run but with encouragement and support of my husband and children I was out the door... I took to the trails (my favourite place to be) such a gorgeous day; sunshine, wildlife, flowers, friendly people and freedom... I was reminded just how lucky I am to be able to run for enjoyment and not to be running in fear, to have the support and love from my family and friends and the freedom to explore my surroundings in peace and safety... I hope for a brighter future for all women and the generations of females to come ❀️ #runningmumsaustralia #rma #eliminateviolenceagainstwomen #internationaleliminationofviolenceagainstwomen #whiteribbonday #lovetorun #mumrunner #mumswhorun #runforthosewhocant #womensupportingwomen #wearecbr #sofranksocial #canberratothecoast #visitcanberra #traillove #trailchix #mounttaylor #oakeyhill #lovemycity #lovecbr #womensrunningcommunity
#likeagirllikeaboss A rest day is never really a rest day when you’re a Mum!! No run today but we had the best time mowing the lawn... I was determined to get it done today and I could hear the distant rumbling of thunder so we quickly dashed outside to get started... it turns out the rain wasn’t so distant but boy did we have fun mowing and getting drenched! Little miss wanted to be cuddled so the next best thing was to ride on mummy’s back and squeal with delight as we hurriedly did laps of the yard... so much fun and good incidental exercise πŸ˜‚ this week I have unclogged our drain, sorted out our blackout, mown the lawn, worked in the office, run up mountains and loved my family hard... let’s celebrate independent, capable females... there is nothing we can’t do!!! #runningmumsaustralia #rma #mumselfie #drenched #runlikeagirlrma #independentwomen #capable #happy #mowthelawn #rainyday #mumlife #celebratewomen #gettingitdone #ican #mum #mumlyfe #irma #womenempowerment #youcandoit #myloves #deuterbaby
A run in the morning on trails with friends, there is no better way to start the day... we laughed, chatted, puffed and enjoyed the views, all while solving the world’s problems... my husband said this photo made him happy, happy to see the obvious love and friendship and the joy we feel when we run... yep he is spot on! πŸƒπŸΌβ€β™€οΈβ€οΈπŸƒπŸ»β€β™€οΈ #runningmumsaustralia #rma #runlikeagirlrma #likeagirllikeaboss #lovetorun #runningbuddies #womensrunningcommunity #inspiringwomenrunners #wearecbr #lovecbr #trailchix #trailchicks #adventuremamas #runhappy #happyplace #mumrunner #mumswhorun #squadgoals #altrarunning #altraaustralia #trailpirate #love #friendship #mounttaylor #visitcanberra #instarunners #canberrainstarunners #runnersofinstagram #canberra
RUN LIKE A GIRL πŸ’ͺπŸΌπŸƒπŸΌβ€β™€οΈπŸ’— Today Irma and I ran the 10kms to work... in the hour it took us to commute I thought about all of the incredible things mums do and it got me thinking about the elite athletes that have achieved greatness after having children... DID YOU KNOW? Paula Radcliffe gave birth in January 2007 and went on to win the NY marathon in November 2007 Evonne Goolagong Cawley gave birth to her daughter in 1977 and then won Wimbledon in 1980 Kim Clijsters gave birth in February 2008 and went on to win the US open in 2009 US swimmer Dara Torres gave birth in 2006 and then won 3 silver medals at 2008 Olympics at the age of 40 Wilma Rudolph (US track and field) gave birth in 1958 her senior year of school to then win 3 gold medals at the 1960 Olympics and become the then fastest woman in the world Mums are incredible and achieve great things... 😘 #runlikeagirlrma #likeagirllikeaboss #runningmumsaustralia #rma #womensrunningcommunity #inspiringwomenrunners #inspiringmums #inspiringfemaleathletes #womensrunning #womencanplay #mumrunner #mumswhorun #runlikeamother #altrarunning #altraaustralia #seemerlag #irma #adventuremamas #femaleathletes #girlsrock #womenrock #mumsrule #suunto #running #werun #runnersofinstagram #run #matchingoutfits #matchymatchy
RUN LIKE A GIRL I decided to take Irma on a sight seeing run of my beautiful city today... she suggested Red Hill because she wanted to show me something? So we knocked out 6kms, lots of stairs, gorgeous views and the Tardis... Irma explained that she wanted to visit the Tardis to highlight that the next Dr Who (the 13th) is a FEMALE, the first in the 50 year history of the BBC sci-fi drama!! How awesome is that? A strong female lead, kicking aliens butts and saving earth... a perfect role model for millions of girls/women who aspire to be strong, capable and kick-arse!!!

We ran our hearts out tonight for a fast 5kms. Lots of squeals of delight, wind in our hair, fun photos and even snagged a Strava trophy (6 seconds off the crown!)
