5 Things About Me: Lauren Johnson

5 Fast Questions

  1. What’s your favorite cereal? As a kid, probably Reese’s Puffs.
  2. What makes a good running partner? A good running partner for me is someone who is ok with doing most of the talking when necessary but also is comfortable running in silence.
  3. What’s your favorite post run beverage? On a hot summer day- Orange juice.
  4. Do you have any connections to Raleigh or North Carolina? None, other than Sir Walter.
  5. If it wasn’t for running, I’d probably be… A veterinarian. I had planned to go to Vet school before I decided to pursue professional running.
