Podcast #15 Lauren Ho
Welcome to a new episode of the podcast featuring Lauren Ho, one of Oahu’s top athletes. An elite obstacle course racer (OCR), runner and a soccer player, Lauren is also a qualified Cross Fit coach and leads a weekly work out group in Kailua: F.I.T. Happy Hour. As a member of a professional racing team , Lauren has competed in and won a number of OCR and trail running events across Hawaii and the continental US including: the Atlas Race Temecula (1st team); the inaugural Ultimate Hawaii Trail Run (1st); and the XTerra Trail Running World Champs (7th).
Lauren is currently gearing up for the year ahead and has a very strong work ethic, on and off the course. One example of this (that made me exhausted just thinking about it) was an Instagram challenge to do 235 burpees (in 12:45mins). Yes, you really did read that. And Lauren completed it. I was fortunate enough to catch up with Lauren over a coffee and it was interesting to hear about Lauren’s background in running, her perspectives on training and life, and also why she loves living in Kailua.
