Why did you start running?
To lose weight and try to get fit. That started around 15/16-ish years ago.
What does running mean to you now?
Everything, really. I’ve loved it since I started. I love travelling to races domestically and abroad. It’s a lifestyle now.
What do you like about Stazza’s Stable?
Oh, boi, where to start? What a fantastic group we have! So supportive, and a very friendly bunch. The comradery on Strava after workouts—whether you run good or bad—is just great. By far the best club/group setting I’ve ever been a part of.
What is your motto?
Never really had one. I’ve never dropped out of a race before, so if I were to invent one it would be to never give up and just keep putting one foot in front of the other. 😊 I drilled that into my head when IRONMAN racing in times gone by.
