About Me...

My name is Rosaleen (that's me on the far right). I am a 47 year old UCC Science graduate, a qualified UL Exercise, Health & Fitness coach, runner, open water swimmer, wife and mother of two lively teenage girls. I really love to run, having come late to the sport, aged 34. In February 2022 I won my first national gold medal, winning the National Masters’ Cross Country F35 team gold with my sister Lizzie and our 2 Leevale AC club-mates. I also came 5th in my F45 age-group at that event, having won my age-group at County level this season. In November 2015 I gained an international cap, representing Ireland in the British & Irish Masters Cross Country Championships in the F40 age-group. My biggest road-race achievement is winning the much missed four race Ballycotton Summer Series in 2015, after finally breaking 30 minutes in the Ballycotton 5 miler that August. My 5k PB is 17:56 from the John Buckley 5k in May 2022, an improvement from my previous one of 18:19 from same race in May 2017. And my 10k PB is 38:55 from July 2021, with both PBs being due to the consistency of lockdown mileage! I founded Run with Ros on 1st of May 2014. Eat with Ros came to life in April 2016 as more and more of my members asked me about my low carb way of eating, which I’ve followed since Autumn of 2014. Finally, I’m absolutely fascinated by menopause, having begun taking HRT a month after my 46th birthday. I chart my menopause journey on Instagram, to try to change the stereotypes around menopause and the misconceptions around HRT.
