THE JOURNEY FROM PREGNANCY TO PERFORMANCE - PREVIEW

February 17, 2021

THE JOURNEY FROM PREGNANCY TO PERFORMANCE - PREVIEW

Sophie Power is a mother and ultra marathon trail runner, who was catapulted in to the international spotlight when a photograph of her breastfeeding her infant son during UTMB in 2018 went viral. Since then, Sophie has used her platform to talk about women's health and the importance of running to maintain physical and mental wellbeing for all women.

Her mission has just become more important than ever, having recently given birth to her third child, a daughter.

Over the past few months we've followed Sophie's journey from the final month of her pregnancy through the birth of her daughter, and documenting her steps to recovery from the huge physical changes of pregnancy and labour, to getting back to running safely.

On March 8th, International Women's day, we'll launch an honest look into the pre and post natal challenges facing women who want to start and grow their families without compromising their goals as runners and women. While positive images of female runners are commonplace, we want to take the important step of addressing the often unspoken barriers that women face - both physical and mental.

We hope that by sharing Sophie's progress, we can empower women around the world, just as her viral picture did 3 years ago.

My journey with T1D has been hugely transformational in a very positive way so far. Hence I have decided to really test my capabilities as an athlete and T1 Diabetic while fundraising for the organisation who helps others like me. I have chosen to compete in the Tarawera 102km Ultramarathon as a way of testing my body to its absolute limit, physically, mentally and ‘diabetically’.
