Padraic George (Bodylite Founder)
Padraic’s running career started from a young age - he competed competitively as a sprinter from the age of 8 up until his teenage years where he eventually moved on to team sports.
Around the age of 30 Padriac came back to running where he started to ‘dabble’ in longer distance road races - specifically 5/10kms. As years went on he started to become more consistent and focused which led to improvement and an ability to be competitive. Padriac really started to enjoy the process of his progression and eventually moved up into the half marathon and marathon distance, where he competed in both the New York and Dublin Marathon.
As a father of a young family his running has always had to fit around his life commitments so he has found himself having to train at times of the day which lacked light and potential safety risks - which is where the origins of Bodylite began for him.
