Leisa Wheaton is a principal from Parry Sound, Ontario.
Running hasn’t always been easy for her. Leisa became motivated when a group of friends began to train for a half marathon. Not quite ready for the distance, Leisa agreed to train, but for a 5K. She eventually worked herself up to the Niagara Women’s Half Marathon and has currently set her goal on running her first marathon!
Along the way, Leisa has found a love for virtual running. She enjoys the online community while supporting various charities.
Leisa’s greatest challenges include finding the time to run and working out in Ontario’s extreme temperatures.
Finding time, energy, and a community of support has helped Leisa has to overcome her challenges. Her persistence and deciation are the reasons why she is our Run Mo' Runner of the Month!
