I am very excited to welcome our newest runner to join the team: Australian ultra-running champion Kerrie Otto de Grancy.
Kerrie's story is absolutely inspirational - in less than a year after running her first half marathon she has set four Australian ultra-running records and is Australia's fastest female runner in the 50 mile road race!
What makes Kerrie's story even more amazing is that she is also mum to 7 year old Bella-Angel, born 16 weeks early just like my boys and only weeks apart from them. Bella-Angel needed nine blood transfusions during her 116 day stay in NICU, and it was Kerrie's desire to raise awareness of the need for blood donors which inspired her to take on the challenge of running her first 100km ultra-marathon!
Please watch this incredible video that Kerrie and Bella-Angel made in the lead up to her big race.
We are so lucky to have Kerrie motivate us with her story at our team pizza night in Coogee on 9 April. Be sure to book a babysitter now!
