Ellie Goulding is on a Nike journey

Ellie Goulding hung out with athletes Sarah Reinertsen and Carmelita Jeter as part of a project for Nike.

The British singer is known for her toned physique, which she shows off in amazing outfits on the stage and red carpet.

Now she's joined Nike and its LA initiative, which encourages women to explore the city while running and training. It gave her the chance to meet Carmelita Jeter, who won a gold, a silver and a bronze medal at the 2012 Olympics in London, UK, and paratriathlete Sarah Reinertsen.

"No big deal and stop going on about it but I spent International Women's Day with THE FASTEST WOMAN IN THE WORLD @jetg5 and Ironman triathlete and Paralympian @alwaystri plus a whole load of badass women killing it on the track and field, even I got involved in the 400m sprints right before this flight back to my London. #NikeLA #NRC," she posted on Instagram.

"Epic workout with #NRC. Join me on the journey to NIKE WOMEN LA (sic)"

Women can sign up now to take part in running and training challenges with Nike in LA on April 24 and 25.

Ellie, 28, has previously spoken about using running to relieve stress and joked her friends can't keep up with her fast pace.

It's thanks to rigorous workouts that she stays so in shape, but when she wore a sheer Julien Macdonald dress on TV last year, she had to deal with Twitter trolls who attacked her looks.

“They said my body was ‘too athletic’. Too athletic?” she fumed to ES Magazine. “Isn’t it admirable that someone has worked so hard to look good and be healthy?”
