Everyone needs a friend like Talisa Hayes in their life! A fitness instructor and personal trainer, you may also know Talisa as a dedicated member of Harlem Run's leadership. Talisa has run 19 ultramarathons (earning her nickname and IG handle "ultrarunningchick") and was set to retire from the distance last week at the Northface Endurance Challenge 50K before facing a major setback. Born and raised in Harlem, Talisa shares her struggles and her triumphs as well as how she wound up being one of the original four women of last year's Run 4 All Women campaign. --- Follow Alison on Instagram at instagram.com/Alisonmdesir; Twitter: twitter.com/Alisonmdesir; Facebook: Facebook.com/Alisonmdesir.
