Running a Marathon in Peri-Menopause
At the age of 47 Tania Dalton started to wonder what would happen if she lived a short life like her Dad, what would she miss out on?  Tania decided that she was going to train to run a marathon even though she says she didn’t consider herself an athlete, didn’t like running and she wasn’t fast.  Peri-menopause hit Tania quite hard with lots of symptoms such as hot flushes, weight gain and debilitating joint pain.  But she didn’t give up.  Tania completed the marathon in a faster time than she thought was possible.

But that wasn’t end of physical challenges for Tania, she then decided to complete a full Ironman event.  It took her 3 years of training, while her menopause symptoms were getting worse due to the stress that she was putting her body under and then along came covid and threatened to derail everything that she had trained for.  Tania kept training but she knew there was a chance that she wouldn’t make the cut off for the event or even be able to travel interstate as border closures came in virtually overnight.  Listen to the podcast to hear what happened.

Tania’s story is one of grit and determination and she realised that she was more capable than she ever thought possible.  Her message to all women is that you can do anything that you put your mind to and she believes that menopause makes you stronger.
