Hello Everyone!

My name is Lisa and I am a Prairie Running Princess. This is a clearly a special title only bestowed upon those who are from the Canadian Prairies, love to run and have actually ran a race in Princess style garb (and totally want to do so again and again).

I have run 11 half marathons, one full marathon and handful of 10Ks since I took up running as a sport when I finished grad school in 2006 when a friend challenged me to run a half marathon with her.

After a year of hard work, determination and much needed coaching and advice from my dad (a former marathon runner), I finished the Fargo Half Marathon in 2007. Not only did I satisfy all three of my goals (1. Finish. 2. Finish without stopping. 3. Finish under two hours), I ran off 60 lbs and, upon receiving my Finisher’s Medal, became truly addicted to the sport.

Since then I have battled many injuries, motivational ups and downs and spent a fair amount of money on massages, physiotherapy and rehab tools like foam rollers and yoga straps. Despite all of this, I still keep coming back.

I look forward to sharing the trials and tribulations of this great sport and being part of the wonderful running blog community.

Much Love,

Lisa
