Training for a st Clair half, chch half and the spring challenge

What it is your motivation for wanting to achieve this?

I just want to get faster and stronger- am currently a bit of a turtle! I also want my son to see how fun it is and to be a good role model for him.

I am a mother, army wife and teacher. I love long distance running and my dad has always been into multi sports which was a big reason for getting me into fitness.

What is your favourite event/or training mission so far?

I have competed in the coast to coast 4 times in a 2 person team. Recently competed with my dad again in the 2018 coast to coast. My husband and I are keen to do this as a tandem team in the distant future!

Why?

I just love that people from all different backgrounds, shapes and sizes can all enter this race and tick it off their bucket list.

I love running the Abel Tasman- just beautiful, closely followed by running around lake Rotoiti in nelson lakes.
