Dream Chasers – Couch potato to marathon runner

As a self-confessed couch potato trying to use Fedhealth’s Dream Chasers campaign to put a healthy distance between herself and her “favourite place in the world”, hearing that she was sitting on said couch when doing this interview was probably the last thing anyone wanted to hear.

The mother of one (to 21-year-old university student Keiran) Hengie McInnes got involved in the campaign when a decision to go on diet was met with a coincidental e-mail from Fedhealth inviting its members to take up the offer to join Dream Chasers.

Hengie is one of three Fedhealth members training to participate in the Cape Town Marathon as part of the medical scheme’s campaign to encourage them to make their fitness dreams a reality. She will be running the 10km Peace Run/Walk on September 15.

Dream Chasers is SA’s hottest new reality web series, featuring the trials and tribulations of three everyday South Africans pursuing their fitness dreams by running the 10km race, the 12km trail run or the 42.2km distance. The contestants receive expert coaching, nutritional advice and gear to bolster their efforts.
