Lisa has been an athlete her entire life, getting involved in running and endurance sport by the age of 13. She was instrumental in creating a cross country team for her small, rural high school because she loved to run and wanted others to experience it. It is now a thriving group.
She ran collegiately in Illinois until 2000 and then what started out as dabbling in triathlon in Arizona became a 12 year-stint racing as a professional triathlete until she retired in 2020.
During that time she raced in nearly 45 iron distance triathlons, won six, podiumed in 20, qualified for Kona twice and travelled the world to train and race. Since her retirement she has run several ultra trail races, moved to North Carolina and joins the Fillnow group as a coach. She’s excited to be part of such a large and thriving local team and enjoys coaching those new to endurance sports or looking to be more healthy and fit! She has a light-hearted approach to training and goal setting, but that doesn’t mean she won’t push her athletes to believe and achieve more! All while having a good laugh or two.
