10 Questions with Lisa:

What’s the most useless talent you have?

Tripping on nothing! Doesn’t matter the shoes or surface, I will trip 5 times a day!! However I rarely fall, so I have that going for me!

What is the dumbest way you have been injured?

When I was a kid, I tried to jump on the side step of my dad’s truck as he was parking (saw older sister do it a million times). I slipped, fell and my leg got ran over! Badly sprained ankle from the fall and pretty nasty tire bruise on my thigh! No broken bones though!!

What’s the most interesting thing you’ve read or seen this week?

All the Lonestar100 race reports have been interesting to read!


What is the most distant place you’ve visited?

Harrisburg, PA (I only remember going to Hershey Park and coming home with chicken pox!)


Favorite running shoes

Altra Timps for trail. Altra Paradigm for road.

Favorite time of day to run

Until Snowdrop, it was always sunrise. After Snowdrop, it’s between midnight and 4am when everyone is sleeping!


Favorite song on your playlist

“Til I Collapse”- Eminem or “Jackal and Hyde”- 5 Finger Death Punch

What accomplishment are you most proud of?

Finishing Snowdrop this year and earning my first buckle! I never imagined I could finish 100 miles and now I’m itching to earn even more buckles!!.

Favorite ice cream flavor

Peppermint stick ice milk from Dewars in Bakersfield, CA


What trait do you like most about yourself?

My stubbornness and willpower....definitely has gotten me to finish a few races I wasn’t quite trained for! LOL It’s also rare to catch me without a smile on the trails!
