Meet Laura From Australia!

For Global Running Day, we are celebrating runners from all over the globe! Follow the stories on our Instagram page.


Laura Hill is from Melbourne, Australia, and we asked her a few questions about running:

Why do you run?

The goal of one day completing an ultra-marathon inspires me to clock up the kilometres each week. With a day job in the corporate world, I love nothing more than lacing up my runners and hitting the pavement to clear my mind and challenge my body.

Describe your favorite place to run.

I love running along Port Phillip Bay in Melbourne. The flat course allows me to run at a fast pace and the view is spectacular. Time goes by when you’re running and looking out to the ocean.


What’s your go-to pre- or post-run meal?

My favorite pre-run meal is a breakfast smoothie of banana, raspberries, chocolate protein powder, chia seeds, milk and a spoon of natural peanut butter. It’s easy to make the night before a long run and delicious.

What makes you a badass?

When I’m going for a training run with my friends and I lie about the halfway point so that we end up running further!


How will you celebrate Global Running Day?

Run, of course! I’ll go for a run after work around Melbourne’s Botanical Gardens track with my running pal. I’ll also be promoting Global Running Day on Instagram and Twitter and I’ll write a post for my blog.
