About

Lana spent most of her childhood exploring by running around outside in the woods, so when she witnessed her first cross country meet at age 11, she felt the sport was perfectly suited to her interests. Passion most definitely preceded the competitive pursuit, which has kept it enjoyable all of these years. She ran cross country and track at the University of Tulsa where she graduated with her Bachelor of Science in Nursing. Upon graduating, she moved to the Seattle area with her husband, where she currently works as an RN on a cardiac unit at a hospital in downtown Seattle. She met Tom Cotner serendipitously at a road race in 2013 and has been running with the club ever since.
