I was introduced to sports as a kid, when my parents enrolled me into athletics at age 9 (I’m so thankful they did that!). I trained and competed for 5 years till I was 14, and progressed from coming last in every single race, to winning the road running league cadets category in 2000 and also being the fastest 600m and 1200m cadet runner at the time. To my regret, I decided to quit athletics after those 5 years.
I quickly went from skinny, fast kid to chubby, lazy teenager. At 17 I met a man (who is now my husband ☺) and turned my life around. I lost 7kg over 9 months and integrated sports and healthy eating into my lifestyle. I’ve never looked back since. Over the years fitness and running became a huge passion of mine and I couldn’t go through a single day without a dose of exercise. Friends and colleagues had even started to approach me for some nutrition and fitness tips!
