Today I'm spotlighting Lisa from Got2RunNow! She is a fellow Sweat Pink Ambassador! Keep reading to learn more about her and her running journey!



Name: Lisa Rini
State: VA

When and why did you start running?
I first developed a love for running in high school- loved running during gym class, and even joined the track team my senior year. Later on, after the birth of my son, running became more than just a means of fitness, it became a way for me to challenge myself.

What is your favorite race distance?
The marathon. I love the adventure, the whole experience of the distance, and, it's a great way to tour a city/location you've never been to.

What is your race day routine?
I love oatmeal and a banana as a pre-race meal. I always make sure my race clothes/water bottle/bib/ etc. are laid out the night before so I don't forget anything.

What is your most favorite piece of running gear?
My Brooks arm warmers have become a staple piece of running gear, especially for fall marathons. I love that if you're hot, you just pull them down, if you get chilly, just pull them back up.

Do you follow any diet or take any specific supplements that compliment your running?
I try to limit processed foods as much as possible. A balanced diet is key. One of my favorite drinks now is a wheatgrass smoothie- with pineapple, oranges, and banana. Not going to deny it- I definitely have a sweet tooth though! As far as supplements- I take fish oil and turmeric (capsules). I also love Vega products!

What is your fondest running memory?
The 2011 Boston Marathon. As soon as they hung the medal around my neck {at the finish line}, I kissed it.

What is one thing most people don't know about you?
I'm very claustrophobic.


Here are all the different ways you can connect with Lisa!


Thanks so much for sharing with us Lisa!!!

QOTD: Do the leaves change color in the fall where you live? (I'm so jealous if they do!)
