About Me

Who am I? What am I doing here? What are you doing here? Truth be told I’m not sure yet. My name is Lisa. Lisa Bender. I’ve been on a journey with that name and I hope to tell you about it. I have a wide variety of interests that I hope you find interesting. If nothing else I hope to chronicle some of my adventures for posterity, or Mom and Dad, or just myself.

Mostly I love anything outdoors, put me at the start line of a race with thousands of strangers and I never feel more at home. Drop me off in the woods and I’ll climb mountains. Put me on a bike and I’ll ride all day. In the process I’ll meet people, see beautiful places, and get bit by mosquitos. Seriously those guys love me.

Whenever someone asks me what I want to do with my life, I always say I want to make an impact in some way. I work at a major corporation in finance, I love what I do and I hope to do good there too but I’m looking to reach out beyond that world to my family, friends and really anyone who will listen to me. I’m not a coach, I’m not here to tell you how to be one of the elite, I’m here to tell you what works for me and brings me the most joy.  I’m here in hopes to encourage and inspire you, because if I can do it, you can too.
