21.62km @ 1:54:39
SMASHED my expected time of just under 2 hours! Conditions were amazing and i ran more comfortably over the 21k than over ever felt! 2019 is looking good so far 😁
Shout out to my one woman support crew and official 📷 @maddyyardy

I promise this is the last of the #cadburymarathon posts- but after a few weeks of trying to figure out how you put together a vlog, we have done it!!!!
Our Cadbury marathon vlog is now live on YouTube!!! It’s a glimpse into our weekend at the running festival in Hobart. You get a bit of Jordan running, a few really cute puppies, a cameo from @melissawils0n, and some footage of Jordan’s chafe prevention strategies (that part is just for @mcdonoughvic).
So head over and have a watch, and then come back here and let us know what you think!!! (Maybe go easy on us- vlogging was certainly a new challenge!!)
Oh and if it’s pixellated- just change your video watch quality on YouTube to 1080HD!

Flash back Friday to the Cadbury half marathon and jump shots with random strangers 🙌 For me this event was meant to be about taking things easy on myself and having some fun. And mostly that is what I did. But I also hit some low points and had a near panic attack during the run which has left me rattled and wondering if I can even do this anymore. But for now I remember this moment and all the other good times that weekend.
First blog is up! The webpage is a work in progress, but will be finished soon. Have a read about the Cadbury Marathon and some of the things you can do in Tassie. https://phippa.wixsite.com/rundaddyaus #chocolaterun36#marathon

My favourite photo from the #cadburymarathon - the last hill up to the finish!
Such a proud and special moment- I’m so glad that I could run the last few k’s, and cheer Jordan all the way to the finish 🏁
10 days post marathon and he is having some knee niggles (lesson learned that a few days hiking/mountain biking after a marathon is not the most sensible option). Nothing too serious though, just a little more rest and rehab needed before training begins for a half marathon planned for the middle of the year!
Also- sorting through the footage from the weekend, and might actually have enough to turn it into something worth watching!! 😂 (ya know, if you’re into that sort of thing)
Flashback to The 5km at Cadbury. Not an awesome run but I had fun and was encouraged on course by a friendly Rhino named Rupert when I struggled. Everyday is a comeback run for me some better some worse but everyday this month I’ve laced up my runners and have run at least 5km towards achieving my goals. 📷: Nick Moles
Don’t let the smile fool you- the #cadburymarathon wasnt all about the sweet treats!
I’m really happy with how my race went (and my time of 3.50)- all of the early mornings and consistent training (no excuses) got me over the line.
3 days later and I’m still struggling to climb stairs, but I’m injury free so I can’t complain!!
Now to set our running goals for 2019- including getting Jessie to her first marathon! More to come on that later...
And thank you again to everyone who donated to the #jdrf
One of these days I'm going to finish a race and be happy with my time... For now I will just have to be content with wanting to be better 🙄😏
Looking at my stats though I'm pretty stoked! It was a tough run in the heat and the golf course wasn't very nice to run on #chocolaterun36#betterthanyesterday 🏃♀️ .
Net time: 24.16
The two pieces of advice I have always remembered from my time as a @skinssportswear recruit in 2015 was don’t go out too fast with the start crowd and always smile for the official photographers on course. I’ll always be grateful to SKINS for the opportunity they gave me which has taught me so many life lessons and formed incredible friendships #running
The human body truly is a remarkable thing!
Last year Veronika and I participated in the kids mini marathon (1km) at Cadbury.
On Sunday I returned(solo without Veronika) to run my first half marathon.
3 months ago my training was on track and I had worked up to 15km
Then PF struck 😫 and I didn’t run for 2 months
I had a goal to come in under 3 hours....but secretly hoped for around 2:45
I knew I could run 15km....so if I could get that far, and then walk after if I needed too.
I got to 15km and thought I need to get to 16, and once at 16 I figured it was ‘only 1 more parkrun and I can run a parkrun’
With a km to go I had a couple of friends pass on their tandem bike and then they were stopped in the traffic, I caught up to them to give them a high 5....and that was what I needed to power up the last hill to the finish....plus Teresa and Peter rode up on the footpath cheering for me.
I ran all the way!
My first half marathon
Running really is such a mind challenge...I think the mental strength I have developed during my Mum-life, and particularly since I had Veronika helped me today.
I knew in my mind that I could cover the distance before I started
2,400 runners and walkers took to Hobart’s northern suburbs at yesterday’s Cadbury Marathon 🍫 Here’s a little preview of some of our favourite footage. Check the link in our bio for the full, same day video 🎥 #chocolaterun36#tasmania#domin8media
Cadbury Half Marathon. I love everything about this event. I didn't set any goals other than to run happy and comfortable (because of the forecasted heat and hills). LRC team encouraged me to chase the 👼 2:15pacer to which I had my doubts. Well, the morning was definitely sunny but breezy; the course was stunning and beautifully undulating! I managed to find the 👼 at 4km and continued to stay ahead of him (LRC's belief in me 👊). I ran SO happy AND comfortable! Even scored a PB!
Yup, still smiling 😁
I want you to do things that excite you.
Scary, butterflies in your stomach, imagine-if kinda things.
I want you to think the best of yourself, & for yourself.
I want you to dare...
Dare to dream big dreams.
Dare to say you’re going to go hard for them.
Dare to reach out & grab at what you want.
Dare to expect good things for yourself.
Dare to be proud.
Dare to be excited.
Dare to try your hardest.
Of all the things I hope for myself, for my loved ones & for you in 2019.
I hope you spend the year being daring.
I hope you surround yourself with people who get excited for you, & with you.
People who are sure you can achieve anything.
📸 Last year’s 5km finisher medal & this year’s 1/2 marathon medal.
Shout out to @1happy_fit_mum who is one of the most daring people I know.
Super fun run at the Cadbury Half this morning. Always such a great vibe at Cadbury, with heaps of the Devonport crew putting in great runs!
- 30th overall
- 7th State Champs
- Missed a PB by 6 seconds 🤦♂️ 1:23:33

3 shirts. ..
Not sure why I missed a shirt, probably thought finishing a marathon was good enough.
2016 - 21.1km - 2.22.07 PB
- first proper race. I learnt so much about everything from this one run.
2017 - 42.2km* - 2.52.05
- DNF at 25k, ITB. While I wasn't fussed on getting a medal, I didn't finish after all, I had been talking to the race managers and they insisted (I'd done the work so I deserved one) so I'm classing that one as a half medal.
2018 - 10k - 59.28
- slowish run due to lack of training but happy with my time and produced one of my best race photos to date.
2019 - 5k - 33.49
- after very little training while focusing on injury recovery, extremely happy with this time.
Well I certainly hadn’t trained for a half but I did it anyway. Major milestone after my surgery and I feel bloody sore but proud I persisted. Big thanks to Julian for getting me through & Bryan and Gemma support crew!! xx #chocolaterun36#sctr#rma#biggoals2019#nevergiveup
