Buffalo Bayou Partnership is fortunate to have so many enthusiastic board members who are as committed to healthy living as they are to transforming the bayou. Three-year board member Lisa Foronda is an avid Buffalo Bayou Park user and all around picture of health. As highlighted in her in-depth 2010 interview with the Houston Chronicle, Lisa is also passionate about helping people improve their lifestyles. She is a volunteer coach for Power in Motion, an exercise group for beginning runners.
Lisa has been training on the Buffalo Bayou Park trails for 12 years, and recently ran the 41st Annual Houston Marathon presented by Chevron (her 15th marathon) alongside two other board members – Sis Johnson and ex-officio board member and Downtown District President and Executive Director Bob Eury. This was Bob’s 30th consecutive Houston Marathon, an accomplishment which earned him a coveted spot in the Houston Marathon Hall of Fame in early January. Bravo, fearless leaders!
