Lorna Tan

Growing up in Indonesia, Lorna never thought she could be a runner.  Most of her time was spent studying and helping her parents with the family business.  Her running journey began in April 2012 when the owner of her company offered to sponsor (and challenge) several employees to participate in the San Diego Rock  ‘n Roll Marathon.  That challenge and the support of her fellow employees, sparked a passion that has continued to this day.

In the subsequent three years, she has completed more than 25 marathons, a double marathon and ran 60 percent of a 100 mile ultra and 100 percent of a second 100-mile ultra-marathon.  To celebrate her 4th year, she was blessed to qualify for Boston.  She is very passionate not only with running but also Bikram  yoga.  She says, “There is nothing like the release, regeneration and peacefulness that results from a morning run and an afternoon yoga workout”.
