Lauren Dodge


A.K.A./Nicknames: Dodge

My personal motivational theme song is…. Boss Bitch by Doja Cat
Best junk food ever created: Cheetos puffs or Australian Licorice or maple bars
Favorite recipes Meyer-Lemon Shortbread Cookies (Picture in attachment)

Secret talent: I think I’m pretty good at making a tasty meal using any pantry in any kitchen. I’ve lived a lot of weird places, so I’ve learned to cook with very little. I think of it as like an ill-equipped Chopped competition. Give me a paint stirrer and a heat source, and I will make something that you probably won’t hate. 
Personal (non-athletic) superpower: I can find a surprising amount of information about people on the internet. Once, I had my bank account drained via venmo and I was able to find the person responsible including photos, address, license plate number and his local baseball team 🙂
Favorite sportsbook: Into Thin Air
Anything else we should know about you? I do not come from an athletic background. My first serious training started when I was 23. Before that, the last time I was dedicated to training was 1 year in high school (16 yrs old) as a swimmer. I never saw myself as being capable of being an athletic person, but I am so happy that I am doing it.
