PETA LANHAM

WALKING LEADER

After a health wake up call, Peta had to make some choices about her life – improve your lifestyle or pay the price! Thankfully, she was introduced to SRG 2 ½ years ago. Starting off with the walking group and enjoying every bit of it she went on to do the 30klm Brisbane Kokoda challenge – took 9 hours but her and her team finished and has since done 2 half marathons, plus various other walks & runs.

Peta enjoys the healthier lifestyle she has chosen but equally as important are the friends she has made as a result. She shares the role of run leader for the walking group with some other amazing run leaders and loves being a part of other people’s journey to a healthier, happier them!

TRACY CONNOLLY

5AM RUN LEADER

If you would have asked Tracy one year ago if she would have ever considered running a marathon, she would have laughed at you. Tracy joined the SRG community in mid 2016 and since joining SRG Tracy has achieved many personal goals in her running and is competing in her first half marathon this year. Tracy draws her inspiration from fellow members of the SRG community and is a regular 5am runner and the odd Wednesday 7.30pm group.
