This amazing lady is new to the RF Crew, joining our ambassador team just within the past month, but her love of RunFaster abounds! Over the past few years she’s been on a life-changing journey from non-runner to ultramarathoner and also lost 40kg along the way!! Meet Chelsea…
Tell us a bit about you.
I am a mum of 4 living on the Sunshine Coast, QLD. In 2019 I decided to change my life completely – enough was enough! I wasn’t happy with what I’d see staring back at me in the mirror. I started ‘Healthy Mummy’ and I also started walking. After 7 months I’d lost over 40kg and I was encouraged to take up running. I ended up running my first ultramarathon of 50km in just 18 months of living my healthier lifestyle! Covid has hit but my goals haven’t changed – I still strive for my best. Now I’m half my size but living twice the life!
What keeps you fit and active?
ROUTINE and I absolutely love to run! I love to smash goals and to push myself. I love the mindset therapy of letting everything go and doing it for my own satisfaction. My kids also keep me on my toes and I love being active with them.
Do you have any tips to share to help with motivation and accountability?
Pencil it in, write it down, create those positive habits and it will all fall into place. Have a goal to chase, but also remember to love the journey do it because you want to.
What’s your favourite RunFaster print and/or style?
I love high waist long shorts and my favourite print right now is Confetti, but I love Sunkissed, Pandemonium, Utopia, Snow Leopard – oh the list goes on!!
Any other stories or comments?
RunFaster helped me grow my confidence. Never being able to wear shorts due to feeling uncomfortable and now being able to wear mid or long shorts, feeling free and enjoying every bit of colour – that has all helped me grow as a person. #freetheknee #wearallthecolour
