Lisa Hertz completed an unprecedented 23-mile Shadow Swim from Clearwater Beach to St. Pete Beach in Florida on December 6th 2014.

She swam to raise money for cluster headache research and awareness. “Cluster Headaches are a rare pain disorder that affects the trigeminal nerve on one side of your head,” Hertz explains. “I was diagnosed with chronic cluster headaches eight years ago and, after trail and error, have been able to keep the attacks under control and live my life. Many people are not so lucky.

I spoke at the 9th Annual Clusterbusters Cluster Headache Conference in Nashville, Tennessee about the importance of having a positive mindset and managing chronic health conditions while being an endurance athlete
