Sixty4 Sports Bra's profile piece

I have, for a number of years, been a huge supporter of small business and have met some amazing people and found some awesome products.  Sixty4 Sports Bra's is one of them, recently the owner Margot asked if I would do a profile piece.  I was humbled and amazed that anyone could be interested in my running story but here it is :-)  If you want a great lasting, value for money sports bra I highly recommend checking out Sixty4 also :-)

Sixty4 Sports BRAS - 1 August at 23:08

I spent last weekend in Canberra at the Womens Ultimate Weekend exhibition. I fitted many women and some came back to order more bras! I was telling my brother about all the amazing women I have met... how designing, fitting and selling bras has enriched my life and also given me a love of running...but whats important is everyone's story... Natika is an amazing woman who I met one day at the Sun Run Event in Manly a few years ago - it was raining heavily and the only people in Manly that day was me and a surfer!! Business was plumetting!!

But along ran this lady and asked me to fit her. She was out for a light run as in 22km!!!! Natika has been a regular wearer of Sixty4 bras ever since - I think she is terrific! And she designs her own jewellery..

Sometimes hearing about someone's journey motivates us in some way so I would like to share her running journey with you....

Hi I’m Tika! I live in the beautiful Northern Beaches and have been running for over 10 years. I did my first half marathon in 2008 and after a few halves I decided to take the plunge and do a full marathon! 

I completed my first marathon in Canberra in 2010 and was bitten by the bug! I have since completed 6 marathons and two ultra-marathons, the longest being The Comrades in South Africa in 2012. Running has truly changed my life, it has shown me that whatever I put my mind to I can achieve and I have also met some amazing people, including the gorgeous Margot! It has also taken me to places I may never have gone to otherwise. I am not good at relaxing so to me running is my meditation, the only time that is just for me and my mind can roam free. 

I am a size 14 and wear an E cup bra so a good sports bra is necessary for comfort! I was lucky enough to find Margot and Sixty4 bras in 2012 and have run both ultras and my last 2 marathons in them. Downright the best sports bras and such great price point to boot! 

I am currently training for marathon #7 which is the Marine Corps Marathon in Washington DC this October. My partner of 11 years has also decided to run his first marathon which is very exciting! I combine my love of travelling with running and always plan our holidays around a marathon I want to run, then I have an excuse for yummy food and wine on the holiday part of the trip.

I started my own business in 2016 which was scary as heck but my running achievements have taught me to back myself and I would rather try something and fail than be left wondering! My business is going fantastically and again has brought so many amazing people into my life!

Thanks for reading

Cheers
Tika
