Howzit, I’m Dawn.

I love trail running.
Love a good challenge.
Love sharing the experience with others.

Physio Trail Runner is a space to share everything trail; tips for training better and preventing injuries, regular blogs about the local trails, races that I have experienced and places that I have run, especially in Kwazulu – Natal, South Africa where I live.

I am a wife, physio, mother, enthusiastic life lover, creative, fun, Christian.

And I am very, VERY passionate and enthusiastic !

See you on the trails.
