Lauren Keating has an equal passion for both reporting and writing.
She specializes in health, nutrition, and fitness reporting. She has closely worked alongside health professionals for projects for print, online, and radio broadcasts. Lauren graduated with a B.A. in journalism and a concentration in health from Brooklyn College. She went to previously freelance for Fit Nation Magazine, was a reporter at Tech Times and currently writes for RunnersClick. Her first children’s book is set to be released spring 2019.
She has a love for running, finishing six half-marathons and a handful of other races including 5ks, 10ks, a 15k, and obstacle races like the Spartan Race. She is currently training for her first triathlon sprint.
However, her greatest accomplishment is her son. She encourages a healthy lifestyle within her family, her toddler already in sports like soccer and often participates in kids’ dashes at running events.
Continuing her teaching of being healthy and fit, Lauren will volunteer as a running coach for Girls on the Run this spring.
As a journalist, she aspires to make an impact on the world and tell stories along the way. As an everyday woman balancing a career and family, while aiming to live a healthy lifestyle, she aspires to share tips and help motivate others to reach their health and fitness goals. She is currently working on a running book that shares tips on how to start running and keep going for miles.
