LISA REISS – MEMBER OF THE MONTH – PALM BEACH ROADRUNNERS

Hello Palm Beach Roadrunner Lisa Reiss.

How many miles per week do you run?

I run about 20-25 miles a week.  I build from there when I am training for a long distance race.

When and why did you start running?

I started running in about seven years ago in Juno Beach.  A friend invited me to run with her.  She kept asking me to join her for bridge workouts, track and long runs.  After our 15 mile run, she asked me if I wanted to sign up for the marathon she was doing and I said, ”no thank you, I’m never running that far!”  After my 18 mile run with her, I realized I had a love for distance running.  I have completed my tenth marathon this past year.

Why do you run?

I think clearly when I run.  Besides running for fitness, it is definitely a stress reliever. 

I hope to share what I have learned and encourage others to accomplish their goals.

When is your next race?

I am training for some triathlons, including Ironman Florida and the South Florida Storm Series of Half Marathons.

Do you prefer to run alone or in a group? 

There are times when I enjoy running alone for my quiet time, but I mostly enjoy running with a group.  It’s great getting to know other people and chatting on long runs. It makes the time fly by.  I also enjoy the camaraderie and encouragement that comes with running in a group

Favorite race, run or distance:

I love running the marathon distance.  I enjoy choosing destination races.  I have found marathon training to be a journey from the beginning of training to race day, and I always seem to learn something more about myself.

Highlight of running or biggest accomplishment:

The highlight of my running and biggest accomplishment to this day has recently been becoming a running coach. I coach the Jeff Galloway Run/Walk Half Marathon and Marathon training program. I am glad that I have knowledge and enthusiasm to give to others.  I have met so many great and enthusiastic people who have set goals for themselves.  I hope to share what I have learned and encourage others to accomplish their goals.

Dream run, race or accomplishment:

I have two dream runs… The Great Wall of China Marathon and The Midnight Sun Marathon in Alaska.

Favorite thing about running:

The beautiful scenic training runs along the beach.

What inspires you?:

What inspires me…  any challenge.

Favorite quote:

“You must do the things you think you cannot do”, Eleanor Roosevelt

Thank you Lisa. Good luck with your training and races!

“Dear Palm Beach Roadrunners,

Thank you so much for the scholarship to the Warrior Running Camp.  I had a wonderful time!  I learned a lot about running and how to be both a better teammate as well as a leader.  The instructors were very knowledgeable and taught me new running techniques and form.  I enjoyed being able to spend time with people who share my same interests.  I made a lot of new friends and bonded with my teammates.  I learned many new things that I will share with my cross country and track team.  Thank you for giving me an opportunity that I otherwise may not have had.  I really appreciate your generosity and the opportunity to attend the Warrior Running Camp.

Thank you for a great week and one that I will never forget.

Sincerely, Julia Volpi”

 

 

“Thank you to all on the Palm Beach Roadrunners Team for enabling me to attend the Warrior Running Camp this year. I had so much fun at the camp, I learned a lot, and overall my team and I had an amazing experience. Thank you so much!! Annie Allmark”
