"Lisa is the most inspiring person I have ever met."
Progress with Lisa as My Coach
OK, Lisa here goes… the reason I chose Lisa as a coach is because she's the best person in the business (and she lives just down the road from me). Since I have been training with her, I have made huge progress in my running and my personal life. My first ever marathon was at the Grand Teton Races this fall. I figured that if I did a hard one right off the bat, the others wouldn't seem so bad. I did ok. (a 5:47 I think) not what I wanted but I'll deal and build on it. After that, I had the honor of pacing Pam Reed at the Wasatch 100 for a 22 mile stretch. Four marathons later and many miles with Lisa (and a few with Jay), I have shaved off 24 min. off my time (a 3:33 @ the Tucson Marathon). All thanks to Lisa (and a couple of Clif Shots along the way).
Lisa as My Coach
Lisa is the most inspiring person I have ever met. To know and train with her on a personal basis is a dream come true. She’s more than a coach; she's a true friend that has given me a lot to look forward to. When you put in so many miles with someone, you really learn a lot about them, and yourself. Thanks for your inspiration and your friendship, Lisa. I can't wait to put in many, many, many more miles with you.
(p.s. I can't wait to meet some of you at Rocky Raccoon in Feb. It's going to be a blast, my first 50!)
