Des Linden is one of the most consistent American Marathoners of all time. She is fast, she is fiesty and she’s chasing down her big W. Des is a two-time Olympian in the marathon and has placed second at Boston, Chicago and the US Olympic Trials. She holds a marathon PR of 2:22:38. Des is toeing the line in Boston this year along with several other notable American Women and after this conversation, I’m sure you’ll be even more excited to cheer for her than you were before!
In this episode we talk about Boston 2018, her marathon progression, some fun stories about training with her husband and not balancing her training and his ironman endeavors. We talk about her breakthrough race in 2011 when she ran a 2:22, placing second in the Boston Marathon by only 2 seconds.
Des is so humble, she is a fierce, hard worker and let me just tell you she is so freaking nice. We had some audio issues (like 45 minutes worth) before the conversation actually got going and she was so chill and nice to figure things out with me. I asked for 45-60 minutes and she gave me two full hours of her time. She says patience is her sweet spot (which we see in her racing) but I also saw that in her willingness to spend time figuring out the issues in this recording as well. THANK YOU DES.
Enjoy this episode with friends!
