Icebug/CEP Hillary Inspirer Tom tells us the pros and cons of a mid-training holiday

Hey everyone! Merry Christmas and happy New Year to you all! I write this post as I sit on a flight bound for Auckland after spending three weeks throughout the sunny South Island with family and friends.

Icebug/CEP Hillary Inspirer Jared raves about his new gear

The holiday period seems to multiply the mood you are in. Those who are low become  lower, those that are happy are over the moon. Then there are those who are low in motivation... gah! I've started my training and it's going okay, but not great. I'm not loving it as much as I have [...]

Icebug/CEP Hillary Inspirer Rebekah learns the meaning of ‘Safe Grip, Free Mind’

Last week a magnificent parcel arrived in the mail from Everyrun, whoa what a treat!!!  To start with I best just be honest, part of the reason I signed up for the blog writing is I really fancied a pair of new shoes.  My old shoes are getting weary and rather malodorous so it was [...]

Icebug/CEP Hillary Inspirer Jared gets this party started!!

Getting started… So I got signed off to run! Well, “Jog… lightly” were the Surgeon's exact words. Lucky that’s what I’m currently capable of, so we seem to be on the same page. I won’t be doing any strengthening exercises on the shoulder until Christmas, so I’ll continue to be uncomfortable at least till then. [...]

Introducing Icebug/CEP Hillary Inspirer Rebekah

Kia Ora, I'm Rebekah, I live in Christchurch with my husband Steve and two kids Erina and Joseph.  First and foremost I would like to describe my running style, or rather, how it was described by a fellow Tarawera Ultra (100km) competitor: "caravan".  As this poor fellow finally pulled up next to me after huffing [...]

Introducing Icebug/CEP Hillary Inspirer Tom

Gidday guys! My name is Tom Sidey and I was lucky enough to be selected as a Hillary Inspirer for 2017! I’m a 25 year old member of the Royal New Zealand Air Force – kind of like Sir Ed himself was all those years ago – and have served for almost 8 years. Originally [...]

Introducing Icebug/CEP Hillary Inspirer Jared

Hey Folks, I don’t know how I suckered my way into this gig. Apparently I’ve fooled the team at Lactic Turkey, so over the next few months I’ll keep up the charade as some sort of inspirer and I do hope you get something out of following my journey to the finish line. I’m Jared, [...]

Icebug/CEP Hillary Inspirer Zara returned to The Hillary this year to beat the trails, that’s not exactly how it turned out ….

Mama always said “you’ve got to have a bad race to have a good one.” So if that’s the case I’m due for an absolute blinder. I feel like the big man upstairs was throwing a bunch of hard balls at me during my build up for the Hillary, as there a multitude of reasons [...]
