Introducing Laura Fountain

Who is Laura Fountain?

Laura Fountain is a journalist, blogger, author and editor living and running in London. After 26 years of inactivity, Laura started running and has since run eight marathons and is now training for an Ironman triathlon. Her blog Lazy Girl Running, was turned into a book ‘The Lazy Runner’. It follows Laura from clueless couch potato to finishing her first sub-4 hour marathon and offers advice that she's learnt along the way.

Laura is a UK Athletics qualified run leader and runs weekly running groups in North London where she helps beginner runners learn how to run and, more importantly, how to enjoy it.
