Episode 5: CHASING STARS
Play • 1 hr 4 min

After winning a battle with brain tumor and earning her second chance in life, Star realized that it is her health that she should prioritize to be able to continue living the seemingly stark life that she has - a mother to two teens, a daughter and a lawyer.


In this episode, we will meet a well-known lawyer Star Elamparo who was an accidental marathoner in 2018. She started her journey to fitness after winning her battle with cancer. This brought her to signing up to the TBR Dream Marathon - a marathon for beginners. The journey to her first marathon ended up with a medical scare with her very minimal preparation that is far from ideal. This traumatic experience made her realize that if she put priority in the challenge she is taking – she can be better not just in the sports but also in her other roles in life. She has never been healthier after finishing four marathon majors around the world and improving her performance by more than 3 hours. Indeed, it is never too late to get started. Star is not done chasing the marathon stars and she plans to do it for as long as she can.


We hope you get some inspiration from her – we surely did during this 40 minute conversation.


Star is running the London Marathon in October 2022 for Alzheimer's Research UK because I wish to help fund research on Alzheimer’s .
