I am Lauren Hill, a 27 year old from West Des Moines, Iowa. I graduated from DePauw University and just completed my Masters in school counseling at the University of Iowa. I really enjoy running and I'm a Drake Relays track and field official. I also like to make quilts and bake in my free time.
I have been participating in triathlons for 3 years now. I got involved with triathlons for a change of pace after running in college. I'm a good swimmer and love running; I've just had to work on the biking part. I ran cross country/track in college and after I graduated I transitioned to half marathons and marathons.
My best event in a triathlon is the running portion. I enjoy training in the early evening after work, though during the summer I try to get my workouts done in the morning before it gets too hot. My most memorable finish was during our conference meet my junior year of college I lost one of my spikes in the first 100 m off the 800 and ran with only one shoe for the rest of the race.
