If you think you can’t run an ultra, think again.

I never thought I’d run an ultra. After running my first marathon in 2014, I thought I never wanted to run that far ever again. But another marathon happened (they’re addictive like that). Then suddenly, here I am at the start of 2018 having run 3 ultra marathons in the last year. It’s a weird feeling, and my attitude towards ultras now is that, yes, they’re a long way, but they no longer scare me because they’re arguably easier (and more enjoyable!) than trying to PB at a marathon, so making that jump into ultra distance isn’t as daunting as you might think.

For my tips for making that leap into the unknown, check out the full article I wrote for RUNR: https://www.runr.co.uk/blogs/news/making-the-jump-to-ultra
