How has your training been going?

My training has been going really good at the moment my coach Brendan Dixon has really trained me well over these last couple of week and definitely feel a lot stronger.

What races have you got coming up?

My next race is the Australia track and field championships in Sydney at the end of April and I will be competing in the 1500m and 800m

Have you tested out the new Run2PB/ON running kit yet, if so, what are your thoughts?

The Run2PB/On running kit is such a great design, light weight and sleek I was so excited to try it in a run. It felt amazing to run in because of how light weight the gear was from the singlet to shorts it made me feel fast. My favourite part from the Run2PB/On running kit would probably be the weather jacket again super light weight but overall the whole of the running kit is amazing.

How has your training been going?

My training has been going really well, I have been doing some shorter runs recently with school and Lara runners and have also been doing Parkrun at the You Yangs when I am able to. I have been making plans to do training for my first official half marathon or maybe even a full marathon. I plan to compete later in the year at the Melbourne Marathon Festival.

What races have you got coming up?

At the moment, I have the Werribee Mansion run coming up in May, I have put down to run the 10km and I am looking forward to running at this event. I’m also hoping to run at the Melbourne Marathon Festival, completing either the Half marathon or full marathon later on in the year.

Have you tested out the new Run2PB/ON running kit yet, if so, what are your thoughts?

I have tested out the running kit a few times since I received the kit in the mail and it feels really comfortable to run in and is really breathable which is really nice for when I am running on warmer days or when I am running my long or hard runs. I also tested out the waterproof running jacket at Parkrun last week as it was raining and It felt really comfortable and kept me dry throughout the run which was nice. Overall, I think the running gear is amazing and feels really nice, as well as looking great :)




About the Run2PB Junior Development Support Program


The Run2PB Junior Development Support Program was born out of a desire from all Run2PB coaches who wanted to give back to the sport and help junior runners across all of Australia. This collective of coaches includes Olympians, National & State Representatives, from 1500m through to Ultra Marathoners.

They have all been on the journey as young aspiring runners and understand that to get the very best out of your running you need a strong support system. We, along with our kind partners, are very excited to play a part in building that support system.
