Lis started out as a competitive swimmer as a teenager and then continued swimming throughout her years at medical school. Whilst pursuing her medical career she took up running for fitness and as a stress relief from a busy job, taking part in several half and full marathons over this time. However, night shifts and busy on call rotas as a junior doctor meant that sport was something that was squeezed into the day.
In 2017, she completed the London Marathon in under 3 hours despite working in A&E at the time; at this time she decided to start to add structure to her training as she started work as a GP. For two years she competed over short distance running events; 1500m/3k/5k. Unfortunately due to multiple injuries she kept finding herself back in the pool, loving swimming again after a ten year break. She also found a love for open water swimming!
In late 2020, as a challenge to herself in the global pandemic, she decided to buy a bike and take up cycling with a view of getting into triathlons. This year she has competed in triathlons, running and even swimming competitions (again!), never looking back!
