Ambassador Spotlight: Rochelle O’Shea

A self-proclaimed lady of leisure, this champion certainly doesn’t sit around doing nothing! In fact, she is always on the go…running, cycling, hiking – it seems she never stops, and all with a beautiful smile. Meet the lovely Rochelle…

Tell us a bit about you.

I’m a wife – hubby and I will celebrate our 29th wedding anniversary this year (and we still like each other)! We’ve got 2 adult kids, 1 beautiful daughter-in-love and 2 beautiful grand babies. I worked in property management and marketing in Real Estate for a number of years, but I’m now a lady of leisure, which I love!

What keeps you fit and active?

My go to exercise is running! I only discovered my love for running in my 40’s, I never really exercised before then. I just wanted to run 5km, it took ages to run the whole 5km with no walk breaks, but since then I’ve never looked back. I’ve done a few half marathons, and now have my eye on an ultra at some stage. My favourite place to run is on the trails. I also love going to classes at the gym and chasing my 3 year old granddaughter around keeps me busy!

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

You have to be your own motivation. You’re not always going to feel like being active, I find it’s on those days you need it the most. Make an appointment with yourself and stick to it. I find exercising in the morning is best for me, it just sets my head in the right space for the day ahead. And I love watching a good sunrise!

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

That’s hard to pick! I love anything pink or animal print! My favourite fabric is Aquafit.
