A nature lover at heart, she lives in Orangeville with her husband and two daughters. Lauren also runs a physiotherapy clinic in Toronto that primarily focuses on working with runners.

Now, 30+ years later, Lauren has raced at the Ironman 70.3 World Championships in Austria and has completed many half and full marathons including the Boston Marathon in 2018. Although a busy family life has temporarily shifted Lauren’s running priorities away from the starting line, she still finds time to strength train and practice yoga, meditation and mindfulness. Her personal philosophy is “pro movement” – that anyone can run regardless of background, age, size, or injury.
