Príbeh ženy, ktorá ako 24-ročná utrpela popáleniny na 65% tela. S manželom majú 2 nádherné deti!

Turia Pitt (33) sa narodila na Tahiti a so svojou rodinou sa presťahovala do Austrálie, keď mala tri roky. So svojim manželom Michaelom Hoskinom sa spoznala ešte počas školy. Pred nešťastným incidentom z roku 2011 sa Turii podarilo získať prácu snov. Okrem iného tak začala nový spoločný život s Michaelom. No ich úžasný a dokonalý svet sa obrátil naruby v septembri 2011.

 

Jej život vysel na vlásku

V roku 2011 sa 24-ročná Turia zúčastnila 100-kilometrového ultramaratónu v austrálskom vnútrozemí na odľahlých cestách. Počas behu sa tak dostala blízko ku nekontrolovanému ohňu zo vzplanutej trávy. Bola jednoducho obkľúčená plameňmi, ktoré spôsobili hĺbkové popáleniny na 65%-tách jej tela.

Do nemocnice ju previezli vrtuľníku vo veľmi kritickom stave a nepredpokladalo sa, že to prežije.

V nemocnici, kde strávila 6 mesiacov, jej v dôsledku zranení amputovali 7 prstov, podstúpila vyše 200 operácii a zotavovala sa 2 roky. Na rekonštrukciu tváre a tela minula približne 3 milióny dolárov a s organizátormi sa súdila na najvyššom americkom súde o sumu 10 miliónov dolárov.

Our little coastal town is the jewel in the crown of the south coast, I reckon! (People in other places such as Tathra, Bermagui and Jervis Bay would most definitely disagree). Even though we’re a few hours away from the big smoke, there are some fully sick local training options that I wanted to highlight. Emily – Em is a fully qualified and certified PT and nutritionist. I started training with Em back in 2012! I was so weak back then that I used to do my pushups off the wall and walk a lap around the studio for my cardio. Em’s awesome, she got me back to being strong and fit and I will be forever indebted to her! Go give her a follow – @empower_wellbeing. Himani – I’ve been doing yoga with Himani since 2012. When I first started with Himani I couldn’t do a cat/cow and definitely couldn’t do a downward dog (or any other animals for that matter). She has the most tranquil studio ever. And the most tranquil and calming persona ever. Thank you for everything Himani! Check her out – @himani_yoga. Amanda – Amanda is a physiotherapist and a pilates instructor. I saw Amanda regularly when I was training hard for Ironman, and I saw her 3-4 days a week while I was pregnant. I experienced minimal back pain during pregnancy and I reckon Amanda can take the credit for this! She’s got the sickest studio in Mollymook – @bodyalignphysio_mollymook. Kristy – After having Hakavai, I often found it hard to do exercise. I love going to Kristy’s group training on a Tues/Thurs arvo. It’s a solid workout, plus you can bring your offspring, plus you get to catch up with all your mates (this reason being the most important) – @kristy_d_fitness. Anyway, I know this info only helps people who live in my area, but I reckon it’s good to acknowledge the people and businesses who make an impact in your life. So, tag your fave training places in your local area below!

Obetavý partner

Jej partner Michael Hoskin sa vzdal svojej práce policajta aby sa o Turiu mohol starať. “Nechce aby ju ľudia ľutovali. Chce iba ďalej žiť svoj život. Je krásna, viete, ona je úžasná. Má šialenú energiu. Miluje byť vonku, miluje oceán tak ako aj ja a sme spolu stále aktívni,” prezradil médiám Hoskin.

Turia prezradila, že po incidente sa musela opäť doslova predierať životom. Musela sa naučiť chodiť či rozprávať. Všetky jednoduché úkony, ktoré niekedy brala ako samozrejmosť sa pre ňu stali nemožnými. O pár rokov po nehode v roku 2015 Michael požiadal Turiu o ruku, keď ešte bola na jednotke intenzívnej starostlivosti. 

 

 

Prekonala samu seba

Hneď ako sa dala ako tak dokopy, nezaháľala a pustila sa tréningu na triatlonové preteky Ironman. Tie spočívajú v plávaní na trase 3,86 km, bicyklovaní na trase 180,25 km a maratónskeho behu (42,2 km).

Ide sa doslova bez prestávky a časový limit na dokončenie všetkých disciplín je 17 hodín. V roku 2016 sa Turia zúčastnila svojho prvého Ironmana a neskôr pokračovala na Svetovom šampionáte Ironmana na Hawaii. Sama priznala, že to bolo náročné ale vtedy pochopila, že ak máte dobre nastavenú myseľ dokážete hocičo.

It’s 2016, and I’m in Kona, Hawaii. I’m clutching my bike, the one with the custom handles, designed to make braking and changing gears a little easier for my hands.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Around me are hundreds of the fittest people on the planet. Lean and tall, with rippling muscles – all zipped up in high performance compression lycra and wraparound sunglasses with holographic lenses. Hot, I know. ⁣ ⁣⁣ If the sartorial choices didn’t immediately spell it out, I’m at the Ironman World Championships, and I’m wondering just what the hell I’m doing there.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ I don’t look anything like these people. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ But I’m one of them. I’m competing. I am an Ironman even though I could easily tell myself I’m not.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Because there’s lots of things I’m not. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ I’m not a researcher or psychologist or anthropologist …. but I’m writing a book on happiness.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ I’m not confident in meetings …. but I’m a successful speaker, sharing my story with tens of thousands of people every year. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Here’s the thing:⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ There are always going to be goals you feel like you’re not capable of, or clubs you’re not fit, or smart, or creative, or tall, or short, or stylish, or strong, or funny enough to join.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ There’s always going to be something you’re NOT. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ But do it anyway.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Do it even though you don’t fit in.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Be it, even though “you can’t’.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ “And how” you may be thinking, “do I just do it, Turia?”⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Well, it’s this simple:⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ If you go for a run, whether it’s around the block or around twenty blocks, you’re a runner.⁣⁣ Your appearance, fitness, gear or technique have nothing to do with it.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ If you sit down and write something, whether your kids are screaming at each other under your makeshift desk at the kitchen table, or you’re wrapped in a woollen jumper, in an isolated hut way up in the Scottish highlands, a mug of tea and a typewriter at hand…. you’re a writer. ⁣⁣ It’s all in the “doing” my friend.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ So, sign up for that trek, book in the date for your floral workshop, register your business name …. whatever it is you want to do, start doing it.⁣⁣ And keep doing it.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Because there’s something you can be, even if you think it’s something you’re not.

Ďalší šťastný moment v živote Turie a Michaela prišiel, keď v roku 2017 privítali na svet svoje prvé dieťa – syna Hakavaia. Hakavai v tahitčine znamená “tanec vody”. Dvojica však neostala pri jednom dieťati a vo februári tohto roku sa im narodil synček Rahiti. Tu opäť zaúradovali tahitské korene Turie a meno Rahiti tak znamená “východ slnka”. 

 

Neutrpela ich láska?

Aj túto otázku načrtla Turia vo svojej knihe Unmasked, ktorú vydala ešte v roku 2017. Turia sa tak nikdy nevyhla otázke či niekedy pomyslela na to, že by ju jej manžel Michael pustil.

“Vždy im poviem, že nikdy som na to ani na chvíľu nepomyslela. Prečo? Pretože bol tu pre mňa každý deň, vrátil sa ku mne každé ráno. A keď je niekto tak oddaný tak pre pochybnosti nie je priestor,” prezradila Turia.

Sama však priznáva, že niekedy je dosť frustrovaná a tak Michaela od seba odstrkuje a chce aby od nej odišiel. No on to nikdy nespravil a nikdy sa na nič nesťažoval.

“Myslela som si, že po tom požiari mu bude vadiť, že vyzerám inak,” spomína si Turia. No vždy, keď mala pocit, že je škaredá a zameriavala sa na svoj vzhľad, vždy ju Michael objal a pripomenul jej, že ju nemiluje iba preto ako vyzerala.

“Náš vzťah je bezpochyby silnejší ako pred tým požiarom. Sme životný partneri. Predtým medzi nami nebolo také hlboké spojenie ako teraz. Vždy som vedela, že budeme mať spolu deti ale teraz viem, že je aj mojou spriaznenou dušou,” zhrnula ich vzťah.

10 things that annoy me about Michael:⁣⁣ 1. He catches fish but buries the carcasses poorly, meaning my house often smells like fish.⁣⁣ 2. He leaves toothpaste in the sink.⁣⁣ 3. His dress sense can be somewhat … lacking. ⁣⁣ 4. If I say “Michael!” he won’t reply, which leads me to say “MICHAELLL!” even louder. To which he will say “I heard you” and I’ll say “Well you didn’t say anything back”. It’s not a very empowering interaction 😂⁣⁣ 5. He’s nice to everyone. This is ostensibly a great quality, but it does mean he says hello to *literally* everyone on the street, and enquires about their renovations and if the health of their goldfish has improved since switching to organic fish food. ⁣⁣ 6. He borrows my socks. ⁣⁣ 7. He’s super relaxed. Which is sometimes awesome (“Oh darl, you spent $899 on a pair of roller blades that don’t work? Well, it’s a mistake that anyone could make”) but sometimes v. annoying (“Yeah, I’ll do the bins tomorrow darl, promise”).⁣⁣ 8. When driving, I like to fill the car up with petrol as soon as it hits ¼ full, so that I can appropriately allocate the time/location when I’ll fill up. He just keeps driving while the fuel light incessantly flashes (“She’ll be right darl”).⁣⁣ 9. He’s very, very calm. Again, a quality that sounds good in theory, but enrages me IRL. For e.g. when I was understandably (and appropriately) worried about the coronavirus pandemic, he encouraged me to just “Breathe it all out”.⁣⁣ 10. He’s often right. See above. Breathing is magnificent to de-stress.⁣⁣ ⁣You know what else annoys me?⁣⁣ When you pre-order a book and you don't get anything extra with it!⁣⁣ ⁣Luckily I've solved that for you 😉⁣⁣ When you pre-order my new book ‘Happy’ you’ll get access to some extra treats.⁣ Like a secret podcast I recorded with some mates (feat. @emmylou_loves @shamelesspodcast, @jessjrowe and fellow ultramarathon runner/grassfire survivor Kate Sanderson).⁣⁣ You can pre-order a signed copy of Happy right now. Link in bio! T x⁣⁣ PS – I explore all those niggly parts of life, relationships, money etc inside 'Happy’. Reading it will make you feel good. Happy, you might even say!
