Meet Karina

Karina joined Rachel’s Runners earlier this year with a goal of running her first half marathon. Since achieving this at Blackmores Sydney Running Festival in September, she now has her sights set on a Half Marathon Hat Trick before 2018 is out! Meet Karina…

Tell us a bit about yourself.

I am a 33 year old mother of two children aged 5 and 2. My husband and I own a garage door business. I have always enjoyed exercise; especially running.

Tell us a bit about you and running โ€“ How? When? Why?

I love to just head out and run with my music on and leave all my stresses behind. I enjoy the peace and quiet when running. With such a busy life, sometimes I do struggle to fit training in. I try to run 3 times per week, plus a swim session and a weights session. Earlier this year I decided to do my first half marathon which I have now completed and I have 2 more planned before the end of the year!

Whatโ€™s the best thing about running for you?

Getting away from the stresses in life and having time for me.

Whatโ€™s your favourite piece of running equipment?

My head phones!

What’s your biggest challenge with running?

The first 5km is always the hardest.

Any tips for fellow runners?

Just make a time; even 30 minutes, to get out and start running.
