2018 CNO Financial Group Indianapolis Monumental Champion and Course Record Holder Laurie Knowles joins me on the podcast today! Laurie is from Atlanta, the mother of two and has qualified for not one, not two, not three but FOUR Olympic Marathon Trials. She will be running in the 2020 trials in her hometown of Atlanta thanks to her qualifying time in NYC last year and Monumental this year.
She came to run Monumental on a last minute switch from CIM due to having responsibilities to care for her Father right now. This took about 5 weeks of training out of her cycle and she still came out to Indianapolis and rocked the course.
In this episode, Laurie tells us about her love for running growing up and how the relationships she’s made through running have been lifelong. She also talks about raising a family and training hard while not taking that aspect of her life too seriously. What’s most important is family and that is so clear when you hear Laurie talk about her life. She is fun and energetic and has a positivity you will hear throughout the episode.
