About the Runner


Hello, My name is Vanessa Mecanovic.  I first embarked on my running journey five years ago, and it has changed my life.   Like so many of you I became hooked after running my first official event, Run for the Kids, which was quickly followed by my first half marathon.  I had officially caught the running bug.

Fast forward 5 years and I am now running marathons and still kicking goals. As a runner in my 40's I still believe I have many PB's to chase.  From running weekly Parkruns, to interstate events, running is a wonderful social hub, and a place where I have met so many wonderful people from the running community that I am now honoured to call my friends.  Running has taught me that with hard work I can achieve any goal that I set my mind to.  Although I have learnt so much about myself and my ability to succeed through running, I have learnt the most from my friends and the running community I have met through this journey.

I hope with all of my passion and experience I can introduce you to some of the great running products out there and help keep you motivated.
