Tell us a bit about you.

I am a solo mum of a 4 year old boy and I have the most supportive parents in the world. I am a Registered Nurse working in adult ICU and I have just completed my 4th degree. I have been 98kg and I’m now 53kg thanks to weigh loss surgery and a lot of psychotherapy plus hard work. I started running in January 2019 so I could have some ‘me’ time. I am just about to do my second 50km run at the Blackall 100. I absolutely love the running community and I love the RunFaster brand!

What keeps you fit and active?

I run, strength train and do yoga. I run around after my son and I barely sit still at work doing 12 hour shifts.

Do you have any tips to share to help with motivation and accountability?

Find yourself a small tribe, set up a messenger group and keep each other motivated and accountable and put stuff on your socials because it motivates others too.

What’s your favourite RunFaster print and/or style?

High waist, long pocket shorts. Warrior is my absolute favourite print and they are my PB pants too. Signature all the way!

Any other stories or comments?

Thanks for being an inclusive brand that also has great customer service too.
