About Johanna Lopez

I am an average Jane that lives in Toronto, ON – Canada and an OCR enthusiast with a passion for all things mud, fitness and outdoors. I never considered myself an athlete but apparently that’s what I am now as a member of Team P4ID, Canadian Mudd Queens and the proud runner to my buddy Charlie – IRUN4CHARLIE! I am currently a Spartan Race (Eastern Canada) Ambassador and a Ragnar Relay Ambassador. I run for all those who can’t and I hope to inspire at least one person to live life to the fullest with a healthy active and compassionate lifestyle through my adventures and accomplishments.
