About Lisa
Uhl first gained notoriety in 2010 when she set the collegiate record in a world-leading 31:18.07 at the Stanford Invitational. It was then the sixth-fastest time ever run by an American. After finding some initial success in her first cross country season as a professional, Uhl struggled with injury and did not compete during the outdoor 2011 season. Uhl returned in 2012 and ran in the Olympic Trials alongside her then training partner Shalane Flanagan who had already secured her spot on the Olympic team in the marathon. Formerly Lisa Koll, she married former Iowa State distance runner Kiel Uhl on September 10, 2011. Serves as a volunteer assistant coach at Iowa State.
