Flamingo outfits, coming last, completing over 100 marathons - we talk to the ever inspiring Lisa Jackson on the latest episode of the Outside & Active podcast.
Outside & Active's Ashley Cox talks to Lisa Jackson about amazing flamingo outfits and in her own words, Lisa describes herself as the kind of runner who doesn’t really like running. You may think differently when you hear that she has completed 108 marathons and two ultramarathons but Lisa has found a way to enjoy running.
Lisa is a cheerleader for the joys of running and is not afraid to finish last having done so in 20 or so of the marathons she’s completed so far.
We have Lisa’s book “your pace or mine” available on the Outside & Active bookshop and if you’re listening, you can get 10% off with the code LISA at shop.outsideandactive.com

dryrobe® is the original outdoor change robe - designed to help you get active outside,
whatever the weather.
A bit like having your own portable changing room, the oversized design of the dryrobe®
Advance gives you plenty of space to get changed in and out of a wetsuit, or sports kit,
but is versatile enough to be worn as a coat or a jacket.
Made from 100% recycled fabrics, the waterproof and windproof outer protects you from
the elements, whilst its super-warm inner lining helps you dry off quickly after getting out of
What people really love about the dryrobe® Advance though is its versatility. It’s perfect for
a huge range of outdoor activities, including surfing, wild swimming, triathlon,
paddleboarding, mountain biking, camping and even walking your dog in torrential rain!
