Tell us a bit about you.
What is there to know about me…. well for starters I LOVE to run! I like to laugh, joke and I don’t take myself too seriously.
I’m a Mum of two, and work full-time in cancer care. I haven’t always been a runner or active… after having my children I decided to change my lifestyle to show my children what it was to be healthy and active.
I love exercise and playing with my children, whether it be netball or football or just running around with them. parkrun is a family outing every week for both the exercise and the social aspect, we have so many amazing friends from parkrun.
I have had a few injuries over the years (currently a torn hamstring!!) so I also try and fit in some strength work in the gym between work, mum-life and kids' sport.
My biggest joy is from seeing others tick of their goals they’ve been working towards. 🙂
What keeps you fit and active?
I decided after having my two children that I needed to be a better role model for them and show them what it is to live a healthy balanced lifestyle. I found a love of running and now my whole family enjoys running and being active together.
Do you have any tips to share to help with motivation and accountability?
Remember your why. Whenever I feel unmotivated I remind myself why I am doing this, and it helps to refocus and gain perspective. I find setting myself goals, big or small helps too.
What's your favourite RunFaster print and/or style?
Oh that is a hard one!! That’s like asking me to choose my favourite child!! I’m definitely a mid waist, mid length short kinda gal, and love the signature fabric. The best bit is being able to twin with my daughter.
Any other stories or comments?
I’ve only been running a short time (7 years) and prior to that I wasn’t living an active lifestyle. I had a few health issues and having kids was the turning point, I realised I needed to make a change. I lost 30kg, started exercising and haven’t looked back. I went from not being able to run to the end of my street to running marathons, ultra marathons, qualifying for events and chipping away at my times.
