Lisa Buohler – Elite Runner/Cyclist

Elite Endurance Athlete Lisa Buohler in ICU After Being Hit By Car

Elite runner/cyclist Lisa Buohler was riding her bicycle on Wednesday when she was hit by a car in Lehigh Acres, Florida.  Buohler suffered a broken back and bruised liver.

“Being propelled 20 feet in the air and landed on the grass, I have to consider the facts – I’m extremely lucky to be here,” she said. “You can be as careful and safe as you like, and it just takes one.”

Buohler and her friend, Mary Rine, were supposed to be traveling to Spain today to compete in the Duathlon World Championships.  Buohler was going to be competing for the first time as a United States citizen, something she was very excited about.

Buohler has been a Facebook friend for several years.  Our thoughts and prayers are with Lisa as she recovers and heals from the accident.

I hope everyone will use this as a wake-up to be even more careful while running and cycling on the roads.  Many behind the wheel are impaired or simply not paying attention.

Earlier this year we lost elite marathoner Sally Meyerhoff who was killed when a semi-truck collided with her bicycle while she was cycling.
