This year, Mel Lawrence was on a roll. She PR'd in 4 events: 2:05.89 800, 4:11.34 1500, 9:34.94 3K Steeple, and a 15:40.18 5K. Woman has got some wheels! She was 5th at Outdoor Nationals in the steeple this summer, which was her highest placing ever at a USA Championship. She is a 5x NCAA All-American out of UW with a 2008 NCAA National Championship team title under her belt. She owns the lowest combined score for a four-time Footlocker Cross Country Finalist (2nd 2nd 2nd 5th)... literally no other athlete has come close to that. She speaks French and cat. And she is also one of my best friends (my own brag). Let's take it away!
Eat, Slay, Love is my commitment to an exploration of self - a rediscovery of who I am, what is important to me, and how I live a life that supports a healthy balance of happiness, striving, meaningful relationships, adventure. It is about responsibility to my self.
