Alex Norris

R0027868.jpg

Run Coach

After the birth of her second daughter in late 2021, Alex set herself a goal to run the Point to Pinnacle in 2022 to focus on something that was just for her and to see what she was capable of. Alex made it to the top and ever since, has kept running!

 

Alex has a background in personal training and workplace injury management: as a qualified Injury Management Coordinator, she’s worked in corporate Insurance and Workers Compensation for private and small business.

 

The mother of two moved to Huonville six years ago, lives on a busy apple and cherry orchard and loves coffee, people, cooking and of course - tying up the laces to hit the road (or orchard trails!).

 

Alex is a strong advocate for regular movement, team training and community as tools to improve and support mental health, and enrich lives. She knows anyone can run, you just have to start small and not overthink it. She’s particularly keen to get more parents moving to benefit their general wellness, which often takes a back seat.

 

She’s so proud of the RMC community that welcomed her with open arms, free of expectations, but loaded with support and friendship. Alex wants to share what we’ve got with others so they too can experience a healthier, happier life.

 

Qualifications:

  • - Level 1 community athletics coach

Jas is an avid runner, encouraging others around her to give themselves the opportunity to find fulfillment within the activity before mentally checking out. She started her running journey in 2016 by entering the Cadbury 10km event with the goal of completing the race without stopping. She succeeded and has never looked back.
