Lisa was a high school standout in the 400 meters in her native New Jersey who took a twenty year break from running. Lisa defied the odds by making a spectacular comeback as a distance runner, and is now a top-caliber masters athlete. Lisa expects to improve dramatically by training with GRC, and hopes to run PRs at every distance in 2011. Lisa has traveled extensively in her position as director of human resources for a large trade association, and since her return to running has spent time in Ethiopia and Tanzania. Lisa denies the rumors prevalent on the internet that during her extended stay in Ethiopia she trained with Meseret Defar and Tirunesh Dibaba. Don’t ask us for the true story–we’ll never tell!
