On this episode Alexandra shares with us the power of possibility through her huge Ironman achievement, and the importance of having a purpose when reaching for a that big scary goal.
Alexandra André grew up on the family farm in South Australia. Having developed a love of running from an early age she got a taste of what’s possible when she completed her first marathon in 2008.
After years of injuries that followed, she continued to chase a second marathon, but Alex chose to take on an even greater challenge in 2015 – the toughest one-day sporting event in the world, IRONMAN Melbourne: 3.8 km swim, 180 km ride, 42.195 km run.
This became bigger than she first imagined, a dedication to her good friend Mads, support from an amazing cheer squad, a life-changing moment, and now a book to inspire us all of through her awesome journey.
Since then, Alexandra has run a further four marathons and launched her own business. Her purpose is to ‘inspire possibility’ and she works with individuals and businesses to do just that. She lives in Melbourne with her son James.
THE POWER OF POSSIBILITY is Alexandra’s first book. She wrote it to share what she learnt on her journey, in the hope it might help others on theirs.
