I’m so excited to be joined today by Lauren Hagans! Lauren runs for NAZ Elite and has been training with them since 2020. She used to specialize in the 5k/10k and was even an 800m runner in college! She has recently debuted in the marathon at Grandma’s Marathon this past June. She won the race in 2:25:55. The Olympic Trials marathon here in a couple of weeks will be her second marathon!
Lauren recently ran a PR in the half marathon in Valencia of 69:40. I am so excited for her and all of her recent progress. She is so fit and ready for the trials!
In this episode, we hear all about her debut marathon, how she is feeling heading into her second marathon at the Olympic Trials, and what her training is looking like. We also get to hear some updates about her team at NAZ Elite and working with her coaches, Jenna and Jack.
