Running Shoes and a Wool Habit: Endurance Athlete and a New Jersey Nun are Running 2,500 Miles of Hope Through America
Date:4/8/2010

From April 19th to June 19th, 2010, Lisa Smith Batchen, one of the world's premier ultra-runners, will be the first person to attempt to run 50 miles in each of the 50 states. She is "Running Hope Through America" to help millions of orphans around the world.

New York, N.Y. (Vocus) -- Internationally-known endurance athlete Lisa Smith Batchen will attempt to become the first athlete to run 50 miles in each of the 50 states in two months in an effort to raise money and awareness for orphans throughout the world. Beginning in N.J. on April 19th, 2010 and finishing in Wyoming on June 19th, the event, Running Hope Through America, will pass through major cities and small towns.

Accompanying Smith Batchen, 49, on the run will be a small support crew including her good friend and running partner, Sister Mary Beth Lloyd, 61, a member of the Religious Teachers Filippini Order. For more than 300 years, this Order has been helping to educate women and children around the world. Smith Batchen met Sister Mary Beth years ago when she was the track coach at an all-girls Catholic High School in New Jersey and was looking for a running coach. “Lisa was the answer to my prayers,” said Sister Mary Beth, who is still located in New Jersey.

Since members of her Order are not allowed to dress in clothes other than a habit, Sister Mary Beth will join Smith Batchen in her full habit: a black wool tunic over a white shirt and underskirt, black headpiece and a black woolen belt. And sneakers. Although Sister Mary Beth is an accomplished marathoner who has completed several marathons and ultramarathons (50 miles or more),
