5 Things About Me: Lauren Johnson

  1. I grew up on a horse farm in Indiana.
  2. I have 2 dogs, a 9 yr old black lab named Raven and a 10 month old American Eskimo puppy named Hala.
  3. My older brother is also a runner. He runs marathons. I tease him that my goal is to break all his track PR’s before I retire (up to 3K that is).
  4. My favorite altitude location for training is Colorado Springs. The winter is pretty mild and the spring and summer are beautiful.
  5. Speed workouts are my favorite. Give me something fast on the track any day over a tempo or long run.

5 Fast Questions

  1. What’s your favorite podcast or Pandora Station? I have never actually listened to a Podcast and don’t listen to Pandora much.
  2. What’s your favorite pre-run or post-run snack? Orange Juice post run on a hot summer day.
  3. If you completed in another sport, what would it be? Basketball, definitely. I played 18 years starting at 4 years old and going all the way through college.
  4. What is your favorite flavor of Gatorade? (Now, or growing up) Fruit Punch or Green Apple
  5. Do you have any connections to Raleigh or North Carolina? Nope, other than running the Sir Walter Miler.
