Story
Tagline
Running Coach passionate about helping endurance athletes reach their goals.
Introduction
Kathleen Lisson 40 year old long distance runner and running coach living in San Diego. My biggest challenge in the 2014 was reaching the summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro. My challenge for 2016 is completing the Triple Crown Half Marathon challenge. I first discovered the power of massage after injuring my ITBS while running track and cross country in high school. I have been able to achieve my running goals for over 20 years with massage, strength training and orthotics. I am passionate about giving endurance athletes an 'extra edge' through physical and mental training.

Climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro July 2014.

Stopped in while shopping at the mall to buy dinner / sandwich rolls. Friendly service and good rolls!

Pleasant service and quality job on callus removal on feet as well as french manicure on hands. There were two older customers with foot issues there when I came in, so it may be a good spot for those who are under a podiatrist's care. Caution: bring cash for a tip if you are using a credit card. There is an ATM nearby.

Delicious ramen and veggie gyoza. It's a popular place, so there was a wait when we went at dinnertime, but service was kind and fast.
