We are incredibly honoured and privileged to have had the opportunity to chat with Eloise Wellings, who generously shares her incredible story of triumphs and set-backs. Eloise’s story has examples of all health issues facing female athletes, from eating disorders, menstrual dysfunction and RED-s, to pregnancy and exercise and returning to sport post partum.
Eloise Wellings is one of Australia’s most inspiring female athletes. She has been running since she was 10 years old, followed her dreams and competed for Australia in 2 Olympic Games in middle distance running. Eloise has also competed in multiple Commonwealth Games, most recently placing 4th in the marathon in Birmingham. You can learn more about Eloise on her website https://www.eloisewellings.com.au
Eloise has also become a sound mentor for younger runners, and as part of helping them thrive has teamed up with mental skills coach Rory Darkins in their very own podcast “Whats right within” - we highly recommend the episode on How to Optimise Stress and Recovery.
To impress you even more, and keep everything in perspective, Eloise is co-founder of the Love Mercy Foundation. The foundation exists to empower communities in Northern Uganda to overcome poverty.
We hope you enjoy listening to this podcast as much as we did interviewing Eloise.
