Meet fisiocrem sponsored athlete Steph, a full-time working Mum who enjoys running for fun. Steph started running back in 2017 as part of a CrossFit challenge, which then lead her to finish a half marathon in 2018 and many more milestones including: two full marathons, a 30km and 25km race distance.
For Steph, running hasn’t always been putting on a pair of shoes and running. She is also a diabetic who is on insulin. Ensuring blood sugar levels are within an appropriate range, is always a challenge when out on a run. This results in Steph always needing to carry her own fuel supply and drinks whilst on course. As Steph now works from home permanently, she has found that getting out and running at 4am most days helps her mental health.
One of her biggest personal achievements would be passing on her passion of running to her daughter. Steph says, ‘‘We should celebrate runners no matter what pace or distance that they run.”
