You’ll re­mem­ber Elana as the world cham­pion run­ner who clinched sil­ver in the 1992 Olympics. To­day, she’s shifted her fo­cus to oth­ers with her ENDUROCAD SA En­durance Academy, shar­ing her ex­pe­ri­ence, knowl­edge and pas­sion with young ath­letes – and women, like Elana AfrikaBre­denkamp, whom she coaches. “I needed a huge in­ward fo­cus to be able to achieve suc­cess as an ath­lete com­pet­ing at the high­est in­ter­na­tional level,” she ex­plains. “Fit­ness and healthy liv­ing are still high pri­or­i­ties in my life – I’m still very fit – but my fo­cus has now changed from run­ning for per­for­mance to run­ning for good health! I still get the feel-good en­dor­phins from run­ning and it clears my head and gives me en­ergy! As a work­ing mom, down­time for me is spend­ing time out­doors with my fam­ily do­ing some­thing that we all en­joy” @elanameyer
