Lauren Jimison is living out her calling as a professional runner.
Lauren had a very successful college running career, yet her transition from college runner to professional didn’t exactly follow a linear path. Yet the path that she went down was perfect for her, and there’s no doubt she’s in the place that she needs to be to successful.
During our run, we talked about the learning curve that marathon runners must navigate, her transition from college runner to professional, the importance of being mentally strong as a runner, her favorite cup of coffee, and a whole lot more.
Here are some of the highlights of our chat:
- Her decision to begin her marathon career at a younger age than most elites
- Lessons she’s learned now that she has a couple of marathons under her belt, and the fact that each race is a learning experience
- As runners, we need to always be mentally prepared for things to go wrong that are out of our control
- How she trained and maintained her fitness during her year between finishing college and joining the ASICS Mammoth Track Club.
- Racing the marathon was a natural evolution for her as a runner, and not something that she felt forced into.
- Why a good cup of coffee is so important to her
