Meet Joanne From Australia!

For Global Running Day, we are celebrating runners from all over the globe! Follow the stories on our Instagram page.


Joanne is from Sydney, Australia, and we asked her a few questions about running:

Why do you run?

I run to keep young. I run to keep improving. I run to set an example.  I run to chase goals. I run to be grateful and appreciate the fact that I CAN. I run for the friendships and encoyragement and support that is generated from a fabulous run group.

Describe your favorite place to run.

Holiday destinations. Ocean views. My in-laws live in mid north coast Forster NSW; it’s the best.

What’s your go-to pre- or post-run meal?

A banana and coffee are my pre-run quick meal. Post-run, I have zoodles, tuna, chilli and corn kernels!


What makes you a badass? 

I actually don’t think I am much of a badass. But I refuse the answer to be ‘no.’ Can’t is not an option. I aim to be faster, fitter and stronger at 44!

How will you celebrate Global Running Day?

I will spend Global Running Day running my free interval session for ladies in our local run club, which I hold every Wednesday. Running. Pushing boundaries. Motivating others to push their boundaries. Running makes me happy. Running with a group makes it even happier
