E9 Lisa: Ditching cigarettes for the trails at 53 years old

At 51, Lisa stood with a cigarette in her hand and watched an 80 year old cross the finish line of a marathon. In that moment, something changed for her and a few years later she would be racing distances up to 50km in the trails! Lisa tells her story of learning how to run and finding her limits are way beyond what she had expected. She fearlessly takes on new challenges even while going through a major foot break and needing a plate and 6 screws! She is one of the most uplifting spirits I’ve spoken to and will leave you both smiling and raring to take on a challenge of your own.
