Pittsburgh Running Blogger Spotlight: Lauren

This week in my Pittsburgh Running Blogger Spotlight, I am happy to introduce you all to Lauren from LauRUN Says.

Lauren and I at the 2014 EQT 10 Miler!

I am a Pittsburgher who joined the running community in Spring 2014. I am currently training to run my first half marathon (Game On, Pittsburgh!) in May 2015. I also love traveling, reading, wine, my dog, Pittsburgh, food, and my running Ohana!

What is your favorite local race and why?
L: The Great Race - I love the down grade! This is a great race to PR!

What is your favorite thing about running?
L: The community - the wonderful friends and family I have found. Also, post-race beer :)

What is your favorite piece of running gear?
L: Tights with fun prints - favorites from DonaJo Fitwear and Team Tights.

What is your favorite running moment?
L: Running a sub-32 5k with my Coach, Jeff!

Lauren is running the Pittsburgh half marathon in support of the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation of America. She is awesome on social media as well! Check her out on Twitter and Instagram. She has also been working with Jeff Galloway to share some tips and motivation from the Olympian on her blog. Make sure you add her to your blog list! 


  1. As much as people hate the great race, I have to agree with Lauren it is a good race to go for a PR. Good luck at the half Lauren
