Umm… but who AM I?
(And why should YOU listen to anything I say?!)
Best-selling author, motivational speaker, and Mum to two delightful little human tornadoes boys.
Back in 2011, I was caught in an out-of-control grassfire while competing in a 100 km ultramarathon in the Australian outback.
I was choppered out of the remote desert barely alive, with full-thickness burns to 65% of my body. I lost seven fingers, had over 200 medical procedures, and spent two gruelling years in recovery.
Surviving against overwhelming odds, I’ve rebuilt my life and defied every expectation placed on me. I’ve done some pretty cool stuff, like writing four bestselling books, and competing in the Ironman World Championships and teaching more than 2,000 Mums how to run.
Look, I know what it’s like to feel like you barely have enough energy to get out of bed… let alone chase after your own dreams.
To feel beyond overwhelmed because it feels like everyone needs something from you right this second and no one can wait their turn. There’s dishes, and laundry, and pet rock collections hiding under your doona, and sheets that WERE clean only an hour ago, and a meeting you’re running late for….. I’ve been there (Hell, I’m currently there).
And I also know what it feels like to be a total beginner. To be scared of starting something new, like running.
But the tips I’ll share with you on this call are the same ones I used to get back into running after the fire, and after each of my pregnancies.
So what are you waiting for? Let’s learn to run, together.
