Mara Alessi (@mariettaalessi) — Social Media Manager for @shape and fitness magazine. 🔋🐰, 👊💢, 🔘⚫️💗 ran my 1st 🏃🏻♀️multi-day race in the Serengeti 🦁🐒🦓🐘. Seeking new adventures 👀💪
#Fbf to the most epic #seenonmyrun ever. My first story on the #serengeti is up in my link in bio. Here I mention all the products that really helped me carry through the 20+hrs of travel time and 45+ miles running through #africa in one piece. These amazing @eddiebauer thick running tights that did not slip 🙌 and this glorious @lululemon Energy Bra 🥰 pictured here are two of my faves. This bra is seriously amazing— it’s strappy, supportive and DID 🎉NOT 🎉CHAFE🎉. Equally as supportive were the special opps team from the @grumetifund who kept us safe on this epic adventure. 🦁 👟 . More adventure stories coming SO soon. #staytuned
It’s def a #legsupthewall kinda Friday. 😍 ps I was casted as a sloth in my 4th grade play and initially I was super upset bc the cool kids were toucans and frogs (remember @firstname.lastname@example.org_ ?!) and I’m NOTHING like a sloth too.much.energy. but I’ve grown to love my spirit animal 🤗 . Thanks @heidikristoffer for the awesome #crossflowx class which perfectly embodies hiit energy and sloth-like restorative yoga. 👀 Look for it steaming on @neoufitness . #shapesquad
2018 was an absolute adventure! Modeling on the @todayshow , making shapes w the #shapesquad and @riva_g_ , running 45 miles in the freaking #serengeti with the @grumetifund X @singita_ (all made possible bc of @hspecialsurgery@pamcakes_ontherun@drjordanmetzl - more on that coming soon!), living my best wannabe influencer life with @theretreatmiami and lots and lots of workouts. Thank you to all of those who made my #topnine memories possible.
I realized I’ve been holding out on all the amazing animal footage from my trip 🤭. Since I can’t work out for a while I’ll be posting all of the amazing animal footage until I get better. First up this herd of 🐘. Did you know that Ellie’s can growl? Yep it sounds just like a tiger! Learned that my second night at @singita_ explore when two came to visit at night. @grumetifund keep up the great work! Look at how healthy these guys look! #safari#serengeti#tanzania#conservation#africa#elephants
Congrats to all the #nycmarathon finishers! @pamcakes_ontherun@_callmeismail@fottness@brookeely@emilyabbate@kieramcarter@drjordanmetzl@lindseyclayton23 I’m so proud to know so many of you and incredibly inspired by each and every one of you! Way to keep at it! ❤️ Who knows maybe I’ll follow in one of your footsteps ... eventually! until then I’ll just keep milking the #runnershigh from the #serengetigirlsrun 🐆🦒🐃🦓🐘🏃🏻♀️
As I tuck my sniffly self into bed 🤒 all I can think about is how a week ago I was tucking myself into the most amazing #massage@singita_ Explore as part of my recovery for the #seregeti Girls Run. #PinchandZoom to see who visited me during one of my sessions. Just another amazing moment made possible by the @grumetifund conservation efforts. 🐘
