"Her Trails has been the place where I’ve found my way back to play. Thank you Sam and Bec for all the love, support and patience. From feeling overwhelmed by the prospect of finishing Park Run - to finding so much fun in spending the day on the trails!"
"It's hard to believe that 12 weeks ago I'd well and truly fallen out of love with running! Today was my third 20+ km run in a month and also a half mara PB. Feeling all sorts of chuffed and all sorts of grateful for this program and community! What a bloody brilliant tribe!"
"Ta Da!! I made it - just! What an exhilarating experience running up, down, in, out, and around our beautiful island, Aotea. Throughout the journey, I often thought of you all, grateful for the constant instruction, support, enthusiasm, and sheer gusto! This program has been truly transformative, proving how brilliant life can be at 70 years young. With this achievement under my belt, I can't help but wonder, what's next on the horizon?"
"I ran my first ever trail race last weekend, 25km, 1200m elevation. I finished 3rd in the women and 14th overall with a time of 3 hours 20mins. This exceeded all my expectations. Thank you so much Bec and Sam for this program and journey and everyone in this group for being part of this great little community. It has been so lovely and inspiring watching everyone's journeys. Happy trail days!"
"This race, my 21st half marathon, stands as a testament to my dedication and growth. With the milestone of turning 40, I am thrilled to have achieved my fastest time ever, feeling stronger and faster than ever before. I must humbly admit that the inclusion of speed work and strength training has truly paid off. It is a remarkable journey that I would never have accomplished on my own."
