Lisa and I discuss her amazing weight loss and fitness transformation journey, her strength training, and how she went from 210 lbs and out of shape to running numerous half marathons, 10ks, 5ks, and even virtual races. We discuss her ups and downs and her current battle with Hemochromatosis, an iron disorder that causes excessive iron build up in her body that has forced her to stop running temporarily.
We also discuss her experience with virtual races, what they are, how to find them, and the benefits she has gotten running them.
All this and more on today’s episode!
