Offering a mindful approach to training; programs incorporate not only the physical action of running but also strength & conditioning, stretch and meditation.
Training extends to both body and mind, having each athlete become more in tune with the rhythm of running and the energy flow that exists internally and externally.
Planted Runners connect further to the integral movement of the body and the energy of environment in which they run to become stronger, faster and further Planted.
As a coach, I train for both trail and bitumen running in particular beginnings and intermediate runners who are looking for a new or elevated physical challenge.
I didn’t really find my running stride until the age of 32 when the guilt of driving to work in peak hour made me re think my mode of transport. From this day I started running to and from work, entering fun runs and then at the age of 37 I ran my first marathon. After running marathons for a few years, I started exploring the longer 100km distances up to 100 miles.
I love running the city streets and beach esplanades but my true love is spending time running on the trails and in the mountains. I enjoy the social and community spirit of running and sharing my passion for goal setting, improvement and exploration through coaching.
Notable races that cement my dedication, commitment and trust in both body and mind include:
The Great Southern Endurance Run (Mt Buller to Bright, VIC) 181km - 1st Female - 47:05:01
Ultra Trail Australia (Blue Mountains, NSW) 100km - 16th Female - 13:22:16

Goals do not have an expiry date and as a coach I not only wish to inspire but to be inspired #plantedrunner #plantedlifeau
