LITTLE KNOWN FACT
Shannon recently completed the Texas Water Safari – a 262 mile kayak/canoe race that starts in San Marcos and ends at, you guessed it, the Gulf of Mexico. If the distance wasn’t enough to make your heart flutter, then picture this, competitors paddle through the night on dark treacherous rivers without stopping.
Originally from Houston but moved frequently growing up and lived in New Jersey, Virginia, and San Antonio before landing in Austin 12 years ago. She and her wonderful husband, Chris Issendorf, own a construction company, CSK Brick Pavers and Hardscapes, in operation since 2006.
When she’s not paddling across the state, Shannon is sprinting down Austin’s amazing trails. She’s completed several half and full marathons AND a 50 Mile Ultra Marathon.
Ultra marathon training isn’t the only thing keeping Shannon running, her 5-year-old daughter, Kaylee, is heading into kindergarten, and her 11-year-old son, Kyle, is heading into middle school next year, yikes! The family wouldn’t be complete without their canine and feline companions, Lizzie, Sandy, and Stella.
Donuts… but if you really want to steal the show you need to track down one stuffed with icing.
