Elaine Janse van Rensburg
Leader: Fish Hoek
I grew up in a family that was not very sporty as half of us had asthma. I did not do much sport and was always sitting on the side line watching
everyone else. One day I decided to just try and run and see what happens. I was very slow but I was okay. I started with the run walk program to do a 5km. I still believe this is a very powerful way to start training. I have now completed 4 half marathons, 1 full marathon and quite a few other races in a two year period and I am aiming for Comrades one day. I am still slow but I do not give up. My aim and goals are to show others to believe in themselves and no matter what your obstacles are you can achieve anything you put your mind too.
I am very adventurous and love the outdoors. I am very blessed to have a husband that also loves the outdoors. We hike and camp as often as possible. I work in an office environment at the moment and need to have my dose of outdoors therefor I run. I am very passionate about fitness and healthy living. I am a qualified medic, Personal trainer and Pilates instructor. I hope to one day have a fitness business going. I love running and motivating slower runners as I AM ONE of the slow once.
I love to run as it allows me to be free and outdoors. You see so many new places when you run. It also proves to me every time that I am capable of so much more.
