Layne is one of the founders of the Running Lushes race team. She is a proud Texan who now calls San Francisco home.  When she’s not at the bar, you can find her running the hills and trails of the bay area or in the Karate studio. She is an accomplished 1/2 marathoner and a first degree Black Belt in Kenpo Karate (don’t try to steal her phone on the muni).

She is a full-time mom, wife, and full-time technical manager, and like many people, she struggles to fit it all in.   She often drags her two sons, Jack and Ryan and her Golden Retriever, Buddy on runs with her for ‘quality time with kids’.

While she does not proclaim to be the fastest or most consistent runner, she is a dedicated running partner and you can count on her to sign up for a race with you (read, she likes the bling).  All bets are off if it starts early.
