Running Matters

Ep 69- Lexy Gilmore- Turning back the clock

August 18, 2020

Lexy Gilmour was an immensely talented junior athlete, representing Australia at World Youth level and the Youth Olympics. In 2007, disillusioned by the grind and single-mindedness of elite athletics, Lexy disappeared into the running wilderness for 5 years.

In 2012, Lexy found her love for running and rekindled her competitive drive. The second phase of her running career has provided some tremendous success, representing Australia as a senior athlete at World XC and winning the Nagoya Half Marathon. She is truly a born-again runner!

The perspective Lexy has gained from her 'game of two halves' will be valuable to a runner of any age but particularly young athletes. We also discuss some tips for better use of your elbows in the running pack, toughening up in the last km and hiding places for partners of the injured athlete!
