Lexie Bryne

My name is Lexie Byrne, I am 28 years old and live in the Friendliest city of them all – Port Elizabeth.

I began running short distances 7 years ago as a way to maintain fitness to complement my horse riding, and immediately fell in love with the sport and began entering races, cautiously increasing the distance of the various races.

Last year, on the other side of recovery from a torn achilles tendon, I made my first half marathon, and now run regular middle and long distance races, feel stronger than ever, and have built the most amazing friendships through the sport.

As a Biokinetics student intern at Nelson Mandela University, I see daily the positive effects of sport and physical activity in all walks of life, and love sharing this joy and positivity with others.
