Hi ENDURrun Community! I’m Lisa Leskien, a trail and snowshoe runner from Cambridge. I’m looking forward to the challenge of this event and experiencing the sense of community that this event creates. I can’t wait to see what I can do at the 2018 ENDURrun.

We’re really excited to welcome Lisa “Herculisa” Leskien to the trails (and roads!) of ENDURrun!


ENDURrun: How did you find out about us?

Herculisa: Runners talking about it 🙂


What convinced you to take the plunge?

A stage race has always been something that I have wanted to try. No better year than this year to try something new.


What are your ENDURrun 2018 stories? 

Motivation for a big event like this for me comes from wanting to show my kids that if they work hard at something they can accomplish their goals. My kids see me train and they cheer me on through the ups and downs of racing. I’ll think about them a lot as I compete – I always do.


Can you share any details of your training? 

I crochet while cross training on the elliptical. It may be my super power.
