My absolute favourite is around my mum’s place in Gundary. Dirt roads, bush, kangaroos and wombats.

I started running as I wanted to get fitter and be a good example for my kids, it had to be a sport that would fit into our lives. It gave me mental space which we all need with the busy world!

I wanted to run for about 5 years but never thought I could. So I joined BotR. The rest, as they say, is history……

I love running at Bondi or round in Centennial Park. You have so many options there with hills, undulating and flat

Running is something that I just did for a bit of exercise and over time it becomes a little addictive.

I taught myself to run because I’d see people running and think I want to do that. I soon met heaps of amazing people through running.

My passion for running did not come from an individual as such, rather the feeling it brings. It just brings me so much joy and a feeling of being strong, free, confident and capable.

BOTR was the safe place for me to start running and it was the program that ignited my love (and now need) of running!

Running is my release from being a robot mum, a release from mind chaos and a long term goal to be able to run a marathon.

I genuinely love running! I am an avid parkrunner and also a running guide for vision-impaired runners with Achilles. I am passionate about how inclusive, fun and accessible running is as a sport.

Michaëlla Steiner Run Leader Nickname: Don’t have one, but sometimes my family call me “M” Where did your passion for running come from: Definitely  from my father. He had been running ever since I can remember, and I always admired him for it…in my early 20’s, we ran the Marine Corp Marathon in Washington DC, and a running monster was…

What its Like to Run with Us

Since starting to run with BOTR I have achieved not only the finish of the city2surf but also the half marathon which I could not have done without the support of all the run leaders. Through BOTR I have fun new friends and run companions and a passion to support my mental health which I am forever grateful for.

And MEL as a leader of this organisation you just rock in all the volunteer work you do and what you give back to the communities. I am looking forward to running many years with the BOTR team.

I signed up to Boobs on the Run because I wanted to improve my fitness and make some new friends.

I got all that and so much more. Three years on and I’m more fit than I’ve ever been, I’m part of a wonderful supportive community of friends, and I’ve discovered the amazing benefits in mental well-being that running can provide. What Mel has created with Boobs on the Run is truly life-changing. Running makes me happy!

I joined BOTR as part of my recovery from Bowel Cancer. I’ve always been active and walked everywhere, however I could never get myself to that next level, running.
The exercise physiologist at Concord Cancer Centre told me all about Mel and BOTR and what an inspiring and amazing person she is. She recommended BOTR as part of my recovery.
I turned up to Get Running and felt sick, before I knew it 10 weeks had passed and I was running for 30 minutes. That 30 minutes changed my view on running and my exercise regime. It inspired me to join Stay Running and another 10 weeks 7 kms clocked up!
Well what else could I do but Keep Running and I look  forward to every Tuesday night with a great group of ladies, no pressure, no competition, no pretentiousness just chatty runs and lots of laughs with an awesome run coach Lesley.
Mel and her run coaches are legends, especially Ally, Lesley and Joy-Ann they have all been the best inspiration.
If you’re looking for an inclusive and inspiring bunch of people to get fit with I couldn’t recommend one better than BOTR. If I can run anyone can, it’s such a sense of freedom.
Thankyou Mel for all your Charity raising, hard work and generosity. It’s been such a pleasure to be part of BOTR I couldn’t imagine life without all of you legends.
