Hi, I’m Lauren – a 33 year old legal assistant, marathoner, fitness enthusiast, and world traveler who lives in upstate New York. I am passionate about running, nutrition, healthy living, traveling the world, and nature.
Running is the biggest part of my life. Running was just a daily routine at the gym until I began wondering why I wasn’t doing something more with it. That day I adjusted my training and within 4 months finished my first half marathon (then the second, third, fourth…). During this time my Mother became very ill while waiting for an organ transplant and was solely dependent on my Father and me to pick her up and move her to accomplish the most basic daily functions. I vowed that while my Mother was unable to move, I would make sure that I constantly kept moving – 6 months later I ran my first marathon. 2 weeks after my first marathon my Mother passed away. I haven’t stopped moving since. Not using your body to its fullest capacity is a waste. Your body can do amazing things if you train and nurture it.
