Hi, I’m Lauren. I was born and raised in Jo’burg and moved to Cape Town in 2013. I have two daughters, two dogs, a cat and a husband and I work from home as a content manager and copywriter.
I started running because I lost a bet after too many shooters one night and agreed to show up for a 6km trail run the next morning. Two km in I was practically dead. I eventually crawled over the finish line and I was hooked. I ran my first 10km a few months later (really slowly) and my first half marathon a few months after that. I finished my first (and currently only) marathon in 2018, and although it wasn’t the best experience I will definitely be back to tackle that one again.
I believe women are immensely powerful and we are definitely stronger together. I’d love to help motivate and inspire more women to find their strength through running. Thanks to running I’ve gone from an unfit smoker to a marathon finisher. If I can do it, anyone can.
