Marathon running is no simple task, but that’s why only the most determined thrive under its gruelling demands. Enter, Lisa Weightman.

Weightman overcame injuries and setbacks early on in her career, before finally making her marathon debut in 2008. And what a debut it was. Weightman finished 13th in the London Marathon with a time of 2:32.22, the equal fastest debut in the distance by any Australian and one that qualified her for the Beijing Olympics just four months later.

Following Beijing, Weightman represented Australia at the 2009 World Championships in Berlin before backing up with a breakout 12-months. In 2010 she captured her debut title at Japan’s Nagano Olympic Commemorative Marathon with a personal best of 2:28.48, placing her fifth on Australia’s the all-time list, broke the Australian Half Marathon All-comers record on the Gold Coast and then went on to win Bronze at the Commonwealth Games.

A year later, Weightman overcame a lengthy injury to post an impressive Olympic qualifier in the 2011 Frankfurt Marathon, ensuring her ticket to London. At the London Games she became just the third Australian woman to finish in the top 20 of an Olympic marathon after producing a career best run through the streets of London, clocking 2:27:32.

This time was again bettered by Weightman in 2013, blitzing the field at the Melbourne Marathon to run 2:26:05.

Having already established herself as one of Australia’s best-ever marathon runners, Weightman continues to test her limits and improve. In addition to completing the training required to be a world class marathon runner, Weightman holds down a full-time job as a business consultant for IBM in Melbourne.
