Lisa Runs on Ramen

— running 26.2 and having foodie adventures too!

About Me

Welcome to my blog! My name is Lisa, and I am a marathon/ultramarathon runner living in NYC who is also a foodie. I love traveling around the world running various road races, and I use writing and photographs to document my travels. I hope to inspire others with wanderlust to seize the day, lace up their running shoes, and explore the world!

I am currently a proud Skechers Ambassador, a 2012/2013  Team Refuel/Got Chocolate Milk? sponsored athlete, a member of the Marathon Maniacs club, the Dashing Whippets Running Team, and the 50 states Marathon Club. I have been running for 11 years, and I plan to run for the rest of my life (or until I am 95 years old and can only do the old-lady shuffle). I have run 33 marathons and ultramarathons since 2005, and the longest races I completed were the TGNY 100 (June 2014) and Beast of Burden Summer 100-miler in August 2012. I’m all about running for the experience and striving to beat my personal records. It’s more fun that way!

  1. I also ran the Brooklyn Half ’13 and ran it with an injury no less and noticed you finished just after me. I’m writing as I wanted to know if you are willing to sell your New Balance Brooklyn Half cycling cap? By the time I made it to the Pre-Party they were all sold out. I know there are plenty of cycling caps out there but this particular one I rather like and didn’t get the chance to purchase one. Hopefully, you are willing to part with yours and sell it to me. Let me know.

    I appreciate the response. I know I’m late in getting back to you…It took me a bit to find the page again. Hopefully, you still have the hat and we can arrange something soon.

  3. Met you at the Shake Shack run. It was fun talking to you about fitness and food. Good luck with Bear 100 this weekend.
