Hi, my name is Lauren Vanee-Brouwer. I am a RRCA Level 1 Certified Running Coach and I am thrilled to be a part of the 605 Private Coaching team! I specialize in 5km to marathon training distances. My passion for the sport began at the age of 9 when I joined a local track club and trained with them until I went off to college where I continued my running career. After graduating, I made a leap into half and full marathon training - and I haven't looked back since!
Running has brought me immense joy in nearly every aspect of my life. It has provided me with a close-knit community, and my husband and I are incredibly grateful for the friendships we have made through group runs, events, and races with our 605 Running friends. Furthermore, running has taught me invaluable life skills such as perseverance, grit, community, and leadership.
In addition to coaching athletes, I am also a mental health therapist in the community and teach a couple fitness classes at a local gym. Throughout all the different aspects of my life, my true passion lies in supporting, mentoring, and being a friend to others as they strive to achieve their goals.
