NZ ultra runner Lisa Tamati is a personal hero of mine.
We are of similar age, and I came across her story at a time when I was really taking myself on with regard to health and fitness. What an inspiration! If I ever get the chance to train with her, I'll be leaving all my excuses in the suitcase. Lisa has run 140+ ultras in her career, despite being asthmatic and having broken her back in her 20's. Enjoy this chat with Lisa Tamati - a genuinely awesome human.
