  • As a long term sufferer of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, I personally know the battle against anxiety and depression (among other things) is real and debilitating and I believe, through running, I have designed a stronger, more resilient life.
  • We believe in empowering others to do the same.
  • We believe in doing all that we can to reduce the stigma attached to mental illness.
  • We believe in creating meaningful connections within our community, because we believe connection is key to good mental health.

About Kate

Running Addict/Health Enthusiast.

Level 2 Intermediate Recreational Running Coach accredited with Athletics Australia.

Currently living in beautiful Bermagui on the Far South Coast of NSW, Australia.

Started running short distances in 2012 simply to improve my health and fitness, which as a result, improved my mental health substantially and sparked my passion for running.

I regularly compete in running events for enjoyment, with my favourite distance being the Half Marathon.

Rookie triathlete, recently competed in the Port Macquarie Half Ironman. Swimming in open water definitely takes me out of my comfort zone, but that is where true growth lies.

Next goal – Ironman 2018.

Other Interests.

Nature lover, travel enthusiast, snow nut. Addicted to nonsense.

@run.brave What is it + Why? Run Brave is a community where honesty is ok. A community that says it's ok to admit that not everyday is picture perfect.

Run Brave is about providing connection + tools to manage those tough days. It's about promoting running + exercise as a means to live a stronger life.
.
By doing what we do as a community here, we help to reduce stigma attached to mental health. We help to spread awareness + we give back to related services that are much needed.
.
2017 is almost behind us. I want to take this opportunity to thank all of you for your support + involvement in this initiative. I look forward to seeing you here in 2018.

Sometimes the brightest smiles hide the deepest pain. Pain is ok. Everyone has stuff 🤷🏼‍♀️ No one's stuff is better or worse than anyone else's. It's just stuff, it's just life. Different lives, different journey's. Running helps us deal with stuff! It's that simple 🙌

Getting ready for another big weekend 🙌 @scienceinsport
Gels + Hydration Tablets 👆 are my go to for longer training days + races. My other nutrition varies, but these products are a staple in my pantry. They work well for me. Inbox me if you're interested in trying them, I'll flick you a 30% off discount code (for anytime use 😱) Not too shabby 🤔 #fuelledbyscience

If you hate to RUN then UN! 🤔 "What garb do you speak of now Kate?" I hear you say. By UN, I mean completely wipe your views + expectations of anything + everything you've previously dealt with. Including people. Why? Because everything is constantly changing. Everything. Maybe just get out there and UN 🤔 you might just like it this time 😉

I'm not the strongest swimmer, but I'm stronger than I was. By stronger, I don't mean faster, just more comfortable. It's always possible to improve your own performance. How exciting is that?

20k on tired legs, with a tired mind! That's Ironman training for you right? No one said it was easy + I don't expect it to be. It's the emotional investment that makes you keep coming back for more. If you want something bad enough with a deep emotional 'why' to back it up, the hiccups mean very little.

MY MORNING IN RHYME:
I woke up so early, tomato on toast. It's in my story, no need for a post 🍅🍞
.
Forgot my bike helmet, thank goodness for Jess. Cheers for the spare girl, damn you're the best 🙌
.
Rode down to Tathra, plenty of hills. Did lots of snacking, but wow, my butt kills 🍑😏
.
On the way back, my bottle cage broke. Pulled over to fix it, but needed a bloke 😂
.
Not even 1 alan key between Jess + I, but lucky for me, I was saved by some guy 🙏
.
With only one bottle, I'd still be okay. 60k in, two thirds of the way.
.
Then the rain started, we got really wet. It was kind of helpful to wash off the sweat 💦
.
A run off the bike, a coffee or two. Ironman training, it's so cool to do 😍😂
.
@_jess_caves thanks for the awesome morning 😘
.
Thanks Karl for the Alan Key 🙏🗝

You know once I had a dream that didn't come true. Ouch! But I realised it wasn't too late to dream something better. It's never too late! Dream big!
