Meet Our 2015 Local Joes!

Local Joe - Lisa Fouts


Lisa Fouts

Q: What motivated you to apply to be a Local Joe?

A:  Where do I even begin on this one...Let's see. I have loved running since high school. I was competitive in both high school and college. After college, I continued to run, but really missed the team aspect of the sport. Then comes a full time job, marriage, kids and the busy life that comes with all of that and running was pushed to the side. I would run, but not with much consistency. I would get excited for a race and train a bit, but once the race was over, I was done. A couple months later, I would get motivated again. That has been my cycle for the last 7 or 8 years. I miss competing. I miss how good running consistently makes me feel. I miss taking the time for myself on a daily basis to go out and do that run. I am also looking forward to meeting others within the running community and actually running with people! And I am so looking forward to being a part of the Start to Finish training program, as I know that will be a huge motivator for me.

Q: What is your background with running? Other athletics?

A:  I have run since middle school. In high school, I did both cross country and track (definitely saw myself as more of a mid-distance runner as opposed to long distance runner) and continued competing at the collegiate level, as I ran both cross country and track at Fort Hays State. As an adult, I've kept up with the running, but it goes in spurts. I have also done some coaching - middle school track and field and Girls on the Run.

Q: Any interesting facts the world should know?

A:  My hubby is a runner as well. We actually met at Fort Hays State, on the cross country team.
