Our 2018 Cover Runner Contest Finalists

Louise Lockett of Richmond, VA

A run coach whose own running experiences inspired her to share the love of running with others.

In her words: “My eating and activity habits took a nosedive after grad school in 2009. Standing at a tall 4 feet, 11 inches, I was quickly becoming an Oompa Loompa. As a high school track athlete, I turned to what I knew to get life and health in check—signed up for my first half marathon. Two and a half hot, unyielding hours later, I finished victorious, and my lifestyle forever changed. Distance running revealed not only physical strength, but also a warrior spirit capable of dealing with any setback. Such a gift is too good not to share. I’ve coached for Girls On The Run, Black Girls RUN!, our local 8K and 10K training teams and became Group Fitness Instructor–certified and teach a free fitness class. This passion for active living has led me to switch careers and join Sports Backers’ Bike Walk RVA to advocate for bikeable, walkable, runnable streets for all in the greater Richmond, Va., region.”
