Road Running Champion to Go Multisport

Two time Chicago Marathon winner, Lisa Rainsberger, revealed in an
interview with Runner's World Daily (www.runnersworld.com) that
she will compete in the Pacific Coast Triathlon on September 14th in
Malibu.   The former Lisa Weidenbach and Lisa Larsen, placed
fourth three times in the U.S. Olympic Trials Marathons in
'84, '88. and '92.  She was 19th in this year's trials in 2:38:44.

Although new to multisport, Rainsberger must be taken seriously.
She qualified for the Olympic trials in swimming in 1980, and
boasts running PR's of 31:35 for 10K, 48:28 for 15K (American
Record) and 2:28:15 for the marathon.  She also won the 1985
Boston Marathon.

Check out Dave's Kuehl's interview at the Runner's World
web site today.  It will be gone tomorrow.

Interesting that she says she hopes to run sub 36 min 10Ks in an
international
distance tri with the goal of making the Sydney Olympics at age 38.

I'll certainly be watching for her in the Pacific Coast tri results.  
Any RSTer doing that race might want to seek her out!  It would be a good
Tri mag story much like the one done on the Men's marathoner who
did Ironman Hawaii in '94 (I think).
