Meet our Solemate Lisa!

Meet our Solemate Lisa!

My name is Lisa Saparito, and I fell in love with Girls on the Run during my first year of teaching in Sparta almost 4 years ago. Girls on the Run allowed me to connect with my students in another element aside from my physical education classes, and reflect on my own character. Over the years I have volunteered for Girls on the Run NJ North as a coach, angel runner, running buddy, and now two-time SoleMate.
This year I will be flying to sunny La Jolla, California to run the La Jolla 1/2 Marathon on April 23, 2017 as a SoleMate. I am excited to be raising money to help get girls into our chapter of GOTR. I strive to be a positive role model in our community and teach my students and GOTR girls to be their best self! I run because it makes me feel confident, determined, relaxed, and healthy.
Some other fun facts about me are that aside from running, I love the beach, reading, travelling, lifting weights, penguins, and the color red. I am also graduating this May with my Master’s Degree, so training for this half marathon will be my therapy! Thanks for your support and wish me luck!!
