Happy birthday to our Salty Leo runners: Oregano, Paprika, Pesto, and Pumpkin! Among professional runners, the Leo pride is also impressively large, so a happy birthday to Des Linden, Lolo Jones, Natasha Hastings, and Magdalena Boulet, too.
In the wild, lions are unique among felines, living in highly-social, organized family groups called prides. These groups consist of one or two breeding males, several related females, and their offspring, who are all fathered by the head male. If that is news to you, I’ll give you a moment to let it sink in that Simba and Nala were half-sibling and cousins.
Although the male lion has his glorious mane and proud profile, it will come as no surprise to Leo runners that lady lions are the real bad-ass hunters of the pride.
Leos embody the leadership, confidence, and fiery spirit, but thankfully not the inbreeding (usually), of the lion. Read on to see what other traits they share!
