5 Things About Me: Lauren Paquette

  1. I really want an RV! I don’t have to explain. Maybe Craig Engels will sell me his.
  2. My New Year’s Resolution this year was to not spend money on anything not related to running. My one cheat has been a European blowdryer because I fried mine this year in Ireland! You don’t understand – this was a necessity for the mane.
  3. Indian is my favorite cuisine.
  4. I consider myself from either Texas, Arkansas, Florida, or Tennessee depending on who I’m talking to and when in my life we’re talking about.
  5. I wanted to play volleyball in college (libero) before I was asked to fill in for a girl on the cross-country team at state who was sick – that’s when fell in love with it even though I walked in my first race!
