She became a mother for the first time in last year, when she and her partner Michael Hoskin announced their arrival of their son Hakavai.
And Turia Pitt says the arrival of the bundle of joy has shifted all of the goal posts in her life.
The 31-year-old no longer wants to compete in marathons, preferring to spend those precious hours with her boy.
‘I no longer have any desire to do an Ironman,’ she told Stellar magazine.
‘Having a baby has changed me and when you become a mum you quickly realise your whole life fits in around your kids,’ she said.
Having suffered horrific burns when she got caught in a wildfire in 2011 during an ultramarathon, Turia said she’s not focused on her athleticism as she once was.
‘I don’t want to be out running for five hours straight. I know how precious life is and I’d rather be with my son,’ she told the publication.
One sporting goal the brunette did achieve is getting back on a surfboard in July.
The mother-of-one shared a number of happy snaps of herself on a board to Instagram, riding the waves with a ear-to-ear grin.
The motivational speaker was candid about her journey to get back to the sport she loves after her horror bushfire ordeal saw her suffer burns to 64 per cent of her body.
‘It’s taken me years to get back to this (approximately 7, but get who’s counting),’ she begun, with her characteristic good humour.
She continued: ‘Whatever it is that you want to improve in your life, go for it. Don’t hold back, give it everything you’ve got.’
Leaving fans with a typically encouraging message, she finished: ‘It’s gonna take work, and consistent effort, but whatever it is, it is possible.’
