Lisa Hallett is the President and Co-Founder of Wear Blue: Run To Remember. On August 25, 2009, Lisa’s husband, CPT John Hallett, was killed when his Stryker was attacked with an improvised explosive device in southern Afghanistan. Surviving the loss of her husband, best friend, and father of her three young children, Lisa turned to running. An avid runner, she soon found a community that needed the same kind of support that running gave her.
On this episode of the Grit Daily Startup Lisa says creating Wear Blue gave her a healthy outlet for her grief and a path to move forward, and she’s committed to sharing that with others. Lisa has an M.Ed.T. from the University of Hawaii and a B.A. in English Literature from the University of California- Santa Barbara.
She completed dozens of ultramarathons and has set a full marathon PR of 3:28:00. Lisa has completed seven Ironman races, to include the Ironman World Championships. Lisa and her three young children reside in DuPont, WA. They are moving forward and loving life, honoring John with every step.
