Run For Your Life was born after my own fitness journey started inspiring others. How does a couch potato go on to finish an Ironman?

I loved knowing that my simple story of deciding that enough was enough meant that other women like me took the plunge to do something to help themselves.

But my story wasn’t enough. When I decided I would do an Ironman I sought help. My goal was too big for me to achieve by myself.

I had friends who were training for their own event but I needed a coach.

Roll on the years and I’ve completed many more, had a son and continued running.

I’m an Athletics NZ registered coach, an Athletics Australia accredited coach (Level 2 Intermediate Recreational Running) and Personal Trainer.

I know you – the embarrassment, the low self-esteem, the lack of belief that you can do it. You can and with me, you will.

My goal is to get you running, succeeding in what you do and enjoying yourself while you do it. Every week I send out training tips and other information I think will benefit you. You can get that here.

Finished!

This could be you, and as your coach I would share that smile with you.
