Lauren Collins is from Orange County, CA, is married with a new son, and loves the beach and being outside with her family. She shares how she hated running while growing up and focused on gymnastics until she started track and field in high school in order to meet new people. She quickly fell in love with running and track and field, leading to an athletic scholarship at UC Irvine. Lauren tells us about barely missing the Olympic trials in 2008 and 2012 for the heptathlon and high jump, respectively, due to injuries. We also talk with Lauren about lessons she learned from being a sports model and a recent business she started with her sister called SISSFiT. Lauren and her sister Kelly have designed treadmill interval workouts and strength training guides that are available on their website. She also shares about her recent pregnancy and first child and how priorities in life have changed. Photo credit: Guzman @lesguzman
