Lisa started running nearly 40 years ago in college to clear her head. Seven marathons, countless half marathons, and a few two-day relays later, she still swears by early morning runs to sort things out. It’s even better when a few friends come along for the miles.

She’s a middle-of-the-pack runner growing slower every year, so she’s quick to tell you that she qualified in Cleveland in 1999 to run Boston in 2000, the peak of her athletic career.

Lisa also loves yoga, bicycle touring, and hikes in the woods to help balance her sedentary work in nonprofit communications. She and her husband, Bob, have two grown kids and live in Durham, North Carolina, with two sweet mutts.
