I am excited to be visiting Nepal for the first time, to run the Temple to Temple (Stupa to Stupa) race this weekend, and to meet Mira Rai to find out more about her Exchange And Empower programme, which aims to provide talented young female runners in Nepal the opportunity to broaden their horizons, experience different lifestyles, and share their stories and culture with others <3
Here is an illustration I did to celebrate the race, featuring Mira and the two temples, from Swayambhu Stupa to Boudhanath Stupa.

Here is a flyer I designed to be distributed at the recent Women in Adventure Film Tour, which I MC'd. Basically, 2018 is all about promoting incredible female athletes :D
So last year, I ran a little race - it was 116km with 8,722m of elevation (according to my Strava) in the mountains of Nueva Vizcaya, Philippines, during a thunderstorm, with leeches and crazy suspension bridges.
It was the hardest thing I have ever attempted and I'm proud as punch for getting fully outside my comfort zone to test my limits.
I have been meaning to illustrate my race report for the past year but have been busy working and travelling. With just over a week before I do it all again, I finally got it done!
Many Thanks to Frontrunner magazine for organising and reporting the race; to Jonel Mendoza, Race Director, for a brutal and beautiful course; to Andy DuBois of Mile27 who coaches me and makes it possible to even get to the start line; to Richard and Marie for organising transportation for me; to all the incredible support stop crews; and to each and every runner I met and ran with.
Let's do it all again next week. OMG.
Peace out, enjoy the trails xx
