My name is Lisa Verdon and I am a proud runner mother of 4, pediatric nurse and wife. I started running 6 years ago to combat postpartum depression after our 4th child and I have not looked back. Running is my drug, my time to be alone and be free. I have ran numerous 5 and 10ks, over 10 half marathons and two Chicago Marathons. I am a proud member of the Fleet Feet Chicago Cheer Team (runCHI) and proud Katie K Active Ambassador.
I am proud of my two Chicago Marathon completions, I ran both for charities. My first marathon was for the Danny Did Foundation and the second was for the Chicago Police Memorial Foundation. I am honored to use my legs and feet to help.
