by | September 14, 2018


A badass mom is a professional multi-tasker, they can do it all!  Sophie Power, ultra-runner and mother of two is quite the impressive runner. Power gave birth to her second son three months ago but that didn’t hold her back from running the over 100 – mile Ultra-Trail du Mont-Blanc marathon (UTMB). Not only did she run the race, she also stopped at rest stations along the way to breastfeed her son, Cormac.

The inspiring moment was snapped by Strava.

“A truly incredible image that tells a better story than we ever could—a story of motherhood, endurance and the strength of the human body. Captured by our photographer, [Alexis Berg], during the 105 miles [UTMB] race, British ultra runner Sophie Power breastfeeds her three-month-old baby, Cormac. [Sophie Power] we applaud you. We applaud your endurance, your courage and your defiance of those who told you couldn’t. You’re a true inspiration,” the caption reads.

On Twitter, badass mom, Power shared a touching video of herself crossing the finish line with her children.

“One hundred and seven miles done. Took a while but reckon I was still fastest mum of a three-month-old baby. And possibly the only runner on the supply side at aid stations. Big thanks to my amazing coach @suttonelc for getting me there,” she says.

“Twenty minutes sleep over two nights—my body was tired and I was hallucinating. What kept me going was how excited I knew Donnacha was about running with me to the finish,” she explains. “He’d done his race earlier in the week and had waited so patiently for two days to help me on mine. This captures the picture in my mind so beautifully!”

On Instagram, she posted the sweetest photo, where she is holding hands with her beaming son, Donnacha, while holding Cormac.

When this badass mom was asked which marathon was harder – UTMB or pregnancy – Showing two pictures, one of herself after she gave birth and the other smiling for the camera during the race with her kids, Power said “looking at the state of me giving birth was a much harder endurance event than finishing UTMB three months later”
