My name is Tina Muir, and I am
an taking a hiatus from my life as an Great Britain Olympic hopeful and professional runner, to start a family with my husband, Steve (SHE is due Feb 2018) after I took 3 months off training to recover from Amenorrhea (not having a period for 9 years!) You may have seen my story in People Magazine or maybe read one of the other articles about my story, and that is how you ended up here.
For those of you who are interested, my PRs are 16:08 (5k), 33:24 (10k), 1:13 (Half Marathon), and 2:36 in the (Marathon).
After working as the Community Manager for Runners Connect and Podcast host for Run to the Top, now I am not running much myself, I am focusing on one of my other passions; helping others achieve their goals through passing on my knowledge and experience to you.
That is why I created the Running for Real Community, and I hope you will consider joining my private Facebook group, where we use social media as a place for runners to foster a healthy mindset around running and training, no matter what level, speed, or experience.
But another thing I want to remind you, is that you are so much more than a runner. I had to learn this the hard way, as my identity was so tangled up in being an elite runner, but you are a wonderful, beautiful person for who you ARE, not what you do. Be Brave! Be Strong! Be You!
I promise you that I will be real with you, even if it means showing weakness or vulnerability. I may have run fast, but I am not as different to you as you might think?
