Lisa Jackson

Speaker

Lisa Jackson is a rather surprising cheerleader for the joys of running. Formerly a committed fitnessphobe, she became a marathon runner at 31, and ran her first 56-mile ultramarathon aged 41. But unlike many runners, Lisa’s not afraid to finish last – in fact, she’s done so in 25 of the 110 marathons and ultras she’s done so far.

Having co-authored the best-selling Running Made Easy (which extols the virtues of run-walking and had sold over 110,000 copies), she wrote about her quest to join the 100 Marathon Club in her best-selling book Your Pace or Mine?, which has won three Running Awards and has recently been released as an audiobook.

Now a columnist for Runner’s World, where she writes the Flamingo Diaries column, Lisa’s philosophy is that running really isn’t about the time you do, but the time you have while doing it. For The Digital Running Show she will be presenting a talk on Saturday, 13 June, at 11:35am until 11:55am, called ’10 Ways to Regain Your Running Mojo’ where she’ll be showing off some of her incredible collection of fancy dress hats!
