I’m Laura Fountain, a freelance journalist and editor specialising in women’s health. I have more than 15 years experience of writing and editing for a range of publications including writing for titles such as The Guardian and The Times.

For the past four years, I have written a monthly column and training articles for Women’s Running magazine.

I have devised and created digital content for leading brands such as Red Bull, Vaseline, Speedo, Groupon, Fitness First and Intersport.

I am the author of two books ‘The Lazy Runner’ (Pitch, 2012) and ‘Tricurious’ (Summersdale, 2015).

In 2013 I founded Lazy Girl Running, women-only running groups in North London. I’m an England Athletics running coach and a tutor for England Athletics coaching courses.

Always keen to talk about running and women’s health, I’ve appeared as a guest expert on Sky Sports News, BBC Radio 5 Live, BBC Radio Scotland.
