5 Things About Me: Lauren Johnson


  1. I grew up showing horses competitively and it is the only sport in which I have won a national championship.
  2. I started playing basketball when I was 4 years old and played all the way through college. I did not identify as a runner until after college.
  3. I like to listen to soundtracks/musicals/Disney music because the music tells a story
  4. I run a lot with my 2 dogs. They even have their own Instagram account, @ravenandluna
  5. My great-great-grandpa founded Weaver Popcorn.

North Carolina connection?
My first college track race was in North Carolina.
